RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C.––AgBiome LLC, a private company developing novel agricultural products to improve crop productivity, today announced that it has secured $14.5 million in Series A financing that will further advance the company’s research and development programs, and support the launch of the company’s first products.

The plant microbiome—the community of microorganisms associated with plants—plays a vital role in plant productivity, disease and pest resistance, and tolerance to environmental stress. AgBiome is identifying novel microbes useful for boosting productivity of crop plants, as well as new useful genes from those microbes.
