The future of humanity depends to a large extent on our ability to meet the food demands of the growing population. At least 40 percent of the world's potential harvests are lost to damaging pests. Therefore, crop protection is essential for modern agriculture.
Today we are living in amazing times where there is plenty of data available and one can find answers to most questions in seconds. There is no doubt that accessibility of data revolutionized our life in the 21th century. Imagine if we could do the same in the crop protection world. Imagine you could use google to find new crop protection compounds. At Agrematch we are aiming to do exactly that.
Our data-based re-matching approach will bring the industry into a new era, with a cheaper and safer crop protection products.
Agrematch is a data driven small molecules product discovery, development and marketing company, catering to the agricultural industry. Our novel Ag products discovery engine utilizes big-data science, biology, chemistry, and ag know-how to bring new crop protection products to market. It enables the continuous supply of novel crop protection products for the ever-changing crop production threats, hence, supporting sustainable food supply.
Agrematch is supported by the Israeli Innovation Authority as well as international investors and industry experts.
agresense - our proprietary algorithm – analyses complex scientific data and identifies new modes of action; on one hand it collects and analyzes data related to the challenge we want to solve - pathogen host interactions, and on the other hand it collects and analyzes compounds related data.
agresense, using AI, machine learning and bioinformatics tools, suggests molecules that might be useful in addressing previously unresolved issues. These molecules are then tested, studied and their efficiency is validated in our labs. Our technology enables us to resolve the complex biological networks of the multiple threats that agriculture is facing, and to find and design the correct solutions that can help mitigate these challenges.
agresense is especially tailored to identify sustainable and natural compounds that will be safer to the environment. We focus on compounds which can successfully go through the development and registration process to become commercial products.
our pipeline includes several compounds with weed and fungi control properties, which were validated in field trials and continue through the development process.
