MustGrow Wins “AgTech Innovation Of The Year” Award From AgTech Breakthrough

18 August 2023, Canada: MustGrow Biologics Corp. (TSXV: MGRO; OTC: MGROF; FRA: 0C0) (“MustGrow”), an agricultural biotechnology company focused on providing science-based biological solutions for high-value crops, today announced it is the winner of the “AgTech Innovation of the Year” award in the 4th annual AgTech Breakthrough Awards program conducted by AgTech Breakthrough, a leading market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global agricultural and food technology markets today.

MustGrow focuses on the development and commercialization of natural biological technologies and products from mustard seed for sustainable agriculture markets. MustGrow’s technology platform is natural, organic and environmentally sustainable.

Mustard plants contain natural molecules that provide a natural defense mechanism to protect them from diseases and pests. MustGrow has extracted and concentrated these key molecules in order to formulate them into natural, organic biopesticides, biofumigants and bioherbicides. In addition, MustGrow’s extracts contain proteins and carbohydrates that feed the soil microbes aiding in soil health and fertility. MustGrow biologics have the potential to help replace banned and/or restricted synthetic chemicals and fertilizers, and protect and grow crops.

MustGrow’s technology platform is also flexible and can be used in a variety of existing application systems, and for numerous crops. It is both safe and non-hazardous for workers as well as the environment. Due to its organic nature, it can be used in organic production, and its natural organic breakdown allows for positive soil microbiome growth. Additional benefits of the low environmental impact include low water solubility, potentially limiting watershed runoff.

“Sustainable agriculture is the way of the future. One of the farmer’s most important assets is their soil and their main objective is to grow a crop. We’re focused on natural technologies that have the potential to provide increased soil fertility and help farmers grow crops for sustainable agriculture,” said Corey Giasson, President, CEO & Director, MustGrow. “We’re honored to be selected by AgTech Breakthrough for the prestigious ‘AgTech Innovation Of The Year’ award. By improving soil health, we can improve crop nutrient uptake and overall performance. Our products will continue to utilize multiple technologies derived from novel plant-based extracts from mustard and other potential sources.”

The mission of the annual AgTech Breakthrough Awards program is to conduct the industry’s most comprehensive analysis and evaluation of agricultural and food technology categories, including Internet-of-Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) based agricultural technologies, farm management, indoor farming, food quality, data analytics and many more. This year’s program attracted more than 1,750 nominations from over 15 different countries throughout the world.

“MustGrow is providing a natural, organic technology platform with the efficacy of synthetic chemicals that has potential application in multiple global markets. Sustainable farming practices are critical to feed a growing population on a finite amount of land. This means replacing or complimenting synthetic chemistries – but that leaves limited alternatives,” said Bryan Vaughn, Managing Director, AgTech Breakthrough. “Growers and consumers are demanding healthy, natural, sustainable, and in some cases, organic products. Natural products like MustGrow’s are ready to make a substantial contribution to the achievement of synthetic pesticide reduction targets and improve overall food quality.”
