OmniLytics partners with Certis USA for its bacteriophage products for crop protection

April 07, 2020 | Case Study

In 2018, OmniLytics, a subsidiary of Phagelux, announced an exclusive sales and marketing collaboration deal with Certis USA (parent company Mitsui & Co.) focused on the former's AgriPhage line of phage-based solutions. Through this collaboration, the two companies look to offer new biocontrol products for fire blight as well as effective control against bacterial spot in fruiting vegetables. After OmniLytics obtained EPA approval for its AgriPhage citrus canker product, Certis USA also made this product available to growers in 2019.
