New Funding Validates Importance of Divergence's Work on Nematodes
Date:2/9/2010

r higher yielding and sustainable agriculture.”

The grant from the NSF is the third that Divergence has received based on Harvest®. “Harvest® is a revolutionary proprietary platform technology with broad utility in the development of agrochemicals and is the source of Divergence’s lead nematicide,” said McCarter. “The platform allows for more rapid and cost effective discovery of novel fungicides, insecticides and herbicides, as well as nematicides. Divergence is applying the platform to internal and collaboration projects in multiple product categories. We are confident of our continued discovery of leads that work through highly effective modes of action not currently used in commercial products. This progress is important as concerns of safety and resistance in a variety of markets increase.”

Divergence is also pleased to continue its productive relationship with NCGA. The collaboration, now in its eighth year, has successfully discovered technology with the potential to protect corn from the yield-reducing effects of parasitic nematode infection. “It is gratifying that NCGA believes in the great importance and high quality of the research being conducted at Divergence,” said McCarter. “The advancement of our work in the last year makes us increasingly confident that growers will have one or more safe and effective approaches to significantly reduce the damage to corn done by parasitic nematodes. These developments should lead to products for other major crop markets, as well.”
