SenesTech, Inc. Initiates Research Field Trials for ContraPest(R) in Indonesia
Date:10/24/2008

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz., Oct. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- SenesTech, Inc. has initiated field trials of its platform technology on the Indonesian island of Java in continuing research collaboration with international partners.

After meeting with Dr. Grant Singleton of the International Rice Research Institute in Manila, Philippines, Drs. Loretta Mayer and Cheryl Dyer of SenesTech, Inc. will join Dr. Lyn Hinds of the Australian Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) and Dr. Sudarmaji of the Indonesian Rice Research Council (IRRC) at the field testing site of the IRRC in Sukamundi, Java. The group will initiate the first field trials of the active ingredient in ContraPest(R). This 21st century alternative to rat poison will be used to cause permanent reproductive failure in female rice field rats (Rattus argentiventer).

The environmentally neutral active ingredient in ContraPest(R) targets the ovaries of female rats, and selectively destroys early-stage egg cells. When these cells become inactive after exposure to ContraPest(R), they cannot mature, the animal can no longer ovulate, and the effect on rodent pest populations can be dramatic. These rodent pests can eat or damage up to 50% of a rice crop in Southeast Asia. Just a 10% increase in crop yield due to less rodent damage will result in feeding up to 380 million more people per year.

"Field testing in the agricultural environment where ContraPest(R) will be applied is a significant step forward in our product development process," said Everett Hale, CEO of SenesTech, Inc. "Collecting data from the rice fields on our first target species gives us the right information to design the best product possible."

Field trials with the rice fields on Java coincide with the annual rice planting and harvesting cycles. SenesTech, Inc. and its partners are planning more field testing in March and April 2009.
