Utilizing the natural strength of boron in crop protection products has proven to open new doors for safe, sustainable and more effective products.
Boron has long been sought after in agriculture as an essential micronutrient, and incorporation of this element into crop protection products was made possible by the world class team at 5Metis. Introduction of boron provides intrinsic properties allowing for access to additional targets that carbon based chemistry cannot reach. When boron is incorporated into a low persistency scaffold such as a natural product, 5Metis can deliver cleaner, more targeted products that increase soil nutrition and crop health.

Why Natural Products?
Historically natural products have been a rich source of new modes of action. These chemicals made by nature can be used in various ways including as active ingredients, starting points to be modified, or as inspiration for new chemistry. Natural products are undergoing a renaissance due to improved tools to discover and produce them and to their advantages over synthetic chemicals such as greater community acceptance.
