Syngenta Crop Protection and Biotalys (Euronext - BTLS) have announced a collaboration to jointly research, develop, and commercialise new biocontrol solutions for managing key pests in diverse crops.

The solution will be based on Biotalys' AGROBODY™ technology and aims to provide farmers with a novel mode of action to combat pest resistance and promote sustainable agriculture.

Syngenta and Biotalys, an agricultural technology company specialising in protein-based biocontrol solutions, will collaborate on a research programme to use Biotalys' AGROBODY™ technology platform for specific insect targets as part of Syngenta's agricultural innovation ecosystem.
