RNA IN ACTION

dsRNA is designed to be highly specific to affect the target pest

Why it’s so powerful

  • Effective

    Trials show that we can develop RNA products that are as effective as traditional options

  • Sustainable

    Our RNA solution targets the destructive organism and aims to leave beneficial insects like ladybugs unharmed

  • Transient

    RNA breaks down quickly in the environment and is undetectable after 4 days
