T-Rex 3G is a technology platform
T-Rex 3G is a platform that has been optimized for nematode suppression. Nematodes cost American soybean growers $1.2 billion annually according to the Iowa Soybean Association.
T-Rex 3G does not kill nematodes but it elicits a powerful defensive response in plants leading to less root damage, fewer symptoms and over time to lower populations of nematodes in the soil.
Peptides from the T-Rex 3G family have shown results comparable to, and in some cases superior to, those achieved by today’s commercial chemical and biological standards for nematode control.
Trials during 2016 showed peptides protecting soybean plants and suppressing populations of Soybean Cyst Nematodes for multiple generations.
