Harpe Bioherbicide Solutions, an agtech company specializing in natural and sustainable herbicide solutions, has announced a joint intellectual property licensing agreement with Corteva Agriscience and the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard. The partnership focuses on utilizing CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing tools to develop crops tolerant to Harpe Bioherbicide applications.


🔬 Advancing Sustainable Herbicide Solutions

The company aims to lead in the bioherbicide market with its new products, offering a sustainable alternative to synthetic herbicides. These products work both as pre-emergent weed prevention and post-emergent weed control.

🌱 Meeting Farmers' Needs with CRISPR-Cas9

Utilizing CRISPR-Cas9 technology will help meet farmers' needs for expanded and differentiated weed control solutions, thereby increasing the technology's commercial viability.

🌍 Impact on Conventional Herbicides

The developed products will also impact the broader industry of conventional herbicides by offering new sites and modes of action, addressing increasing weed resistance challenges.

🤝 Collaboration with Solis Agrosciences

Harpe is also collaborating with Saint Louis-based Solis Agrosciences to accelerate the development of herbicide-tolerant crop systems.
