MustGrow (CSE: MGRO) (OTCQX: MGROF) (FRA: 0C0), an agriculture biotech company focused on providing natural biological protection for high value crops, today announced that it has isolated and concentrated an additional molecule, thiocyanate, from mustard seed. According to the update, thiocyanate is responsible for the systemic activity behind the mustard plant’s natural herbicidal (weed-killer) properties and is the third molecule from mustard seed that MustGrow has isolated, extracted and concentrated. MustGrow had previously announced herbicidal proof-of-concept success without isolating thiocyanate and now expects to build on those studies with identification of this additional herbicidal mode-of-action. MustGrow has commenced greenhouse testing of the new thiocyanate bioherbicide extract, and also in combination with MustGrow’s mustard-based biopesticide TerraMG (active ingredient allyl isothiocyanate (“AITC”)). MustGrow now has two distinct mustard-based natural organic approaches with individual or potential combination applications.
