Agile Sciences will join forces with SePRO Corporation to develop Agile Sciences' proprietary compound for use in Turf and Ornamental applications.

As the population increases, the need to preserve, protect and enhance our urban green spaces will also increase.    Managers of urban green spaces such as golf courses, commercial and residential lawns and landscapes, parks, nurseries and greenhouses are seeking ways to manage their turf and ornamental crops by utilizing less agronomic inputs, including water, fertilizers and plant protection products.

Agile Sciences' proprietary compound, Agilyte™, has been shown to be effective in dispersing biofilms, which grow on all plants and can sometimes act as shields against the entry of desirable plant protection products. Under this agreement, SePRO, a leader in the Turf Growth Regulator market, and a recognized expert in Greenhouse / Ornamental crop production, will validate the compound's efficacy, develop the compound composition and potential product combinations, and then retain an exclusive world-wide license for the Agile Sciences technology for products sold in the Turf and Ornamental markets.

According to Agile Sciences' President and cofounder Dr. Christian Melander, "This agreement between Agile Sciences and SePRO represents a major step forward in developing Agilyte™ for Turf and Ornamental markets, and we are excited to be working with SePRO on this application."
