Majestene Bionematicide reduces nematode populations and increases yield and quality in a wide range of specialty and row crops. Haven reduces sun and water stress in crops and increases yields and quality. MBI entered the water market with Zequanox, the industry’s first bio-based product to selectively control invasive zebra and quagga mussels in pipes and open water.

Award-Winning Commercial Products

MBI focuses on bringing effective biological solutions to growers across the full range of their pest management and plant health needs. MBI has won numerous awards including Agrow Best New Biopesticide for Regalia, Grandevo, Venerate and Majestene and IBMA’s Bernard Blum Award for the microbe behind Venerate, Majestene and MBI-014.

Regalia Biofungicide

Regalia is the company’s award-winning flagship product. The family of bio-based fungicides — Regalia, Regalia Rx, Regalia PTO, and Regalia MAXX—all share a unique mode of action that activates the natural defense mechanisms of plants to prevent disease, improve plant health, and enhance yields.

Grandevo Bioinsecticide
Venerate Bioinsecticide

The company’s microbial bioinsecticides, Grandevo and Venerate, are paving the way for new, innovative uses of microbial insecticides. Commercially launched for protecting fruit, vegetable and nut crops against a broad spectrum of chewing and sucking insects and mites, Grandevo and Venerate joined Regalia as AGROW Best New Biopesticide winners. Grandevo and Venerate are recommended in rotational programs with other products for improved pest, resistance and residue management.

Majestene Bionematicide
Zelto Bionematicide

Majestene is an award-winning microbial nematicide that reduces nematode populations and can prevent or reduce gall formation. Majestene is a liquid nematicide that can be applied at planting and inseason for season-long nematode suppression in furrow or through irrigation in potatoes, strawberries, tomatoes, peppers, cucurbits, corn and onions. Majestene works on a wide range of nematode species and can also be used as a seed treatment. Sold under the brand Zelto for turf pests.

Haven Plant Stress Protection

Haven Sun Protectant is a plant extract that acts as a sunscreen to reduce crop stress due to sun and water stress. It has shown better yields and/or quality on a variety of crops including apples, grapes, almonds, walnuts, citrus, tomatoes, peppers, turf, wheat and corn.

Stargus Biofungicide
Amplitude Biofungicide

Stargus (for specialty crops – fruit, nut and vegetable) and Amplitude (for row crops) are based on a new strain of Bacillus amyloliquefaciens that produces natural compounds that prevent white molds, downy mildews and Botrytis gray mold/bunch rot and other diseases. Best in class biofungicide for controlling these diseases.

Zequanox Invasive Mussel Control

Zequanox is MBI’s first aquatic biopesticide. Developed as an alternative to the harmful and corrosive chemical molluscicides used to control invasive freshwater mussels, Zequanox delivers efficacy comparable to chemicals for in-pipe treatments without harming humans, non-target species, or the environment. Zequanox is currently registered in the United States and Canada for use in service and process water systems at energy plants, manufacturing facilities. In the US, Zequanox is the only environmentally responsible solution for open water (e.g. lakes) treatments.
