ABMAdvanced Biological Marketing (ABM) has filed an application with US patent office for a Trichoderma strain that may mean new things for agriculture.  ABM currently uses other Trichoderma strains in their ag products, including the SabrEx line.

This new strain is uniquely versatile in its capabilities and provides new and enhanced properties to ABM’s previously patented Trichoderma products.

The benefits of this new Trichoderma strain are an increase in one or more beneficial plant attributes. These attributes include plant growth, yield, root development, resistance to abiotic stresses, photosynthetic efficiency, reduction of foliar disease, controlling nematodes, inducing systemic changes in plant gene expression and protecting planted seeds from soil-borne pathogens.

“This new Trichoderma strain is showing very promising results,” said Dan Custis, ABM CEO. “We’ll need to do more testing in the field and get our registrations in place, but we anticipate a line of products soon. I complement our research and development team for their hard work and the discovery platforms they have put in place.”
