Biotalys’ first biocontrol Evoca wins world BioProtection award 2022

Biotalys announced that its biocontrol Evoca won the World BioProtection Award 2022 for Best Biofungicide Product. The award was granted at the World BioProtection Summit taking place in Birmingham (UK) this week, based on the innovative character, scientific value and market potential of the product.  

Evoca is the first protein-based biofungicide developed on Biotalys’ AGROBODY Foundry platform. It helps control fungal diseases such as Botrytis and powdery mildew in fruits and vegetables. Once approved by regulatory authorities, Evoca will provide growers with a new rotation partner in integrated pest management (IPM) programs, reducing the dependency on chemical pesticides while protecting yields.

Patrice Sellès, CEO of Biotalys said: “We are honored to receive this global award for Evoca, the first biocontrol product developed on our unique technology platform. Demonstrating the strength of our technology and approach, this award recognizes the hard work of our colleagues and the scientific excellence of our teams to develop a new and effective tool for growers to protect their crops from fungal diseases." "This is a great encouragement for all stakeholders connected to our company as we prepare the market introduction of the product in select markets in the U.S. following regulatory approval expected later this year,” commented Patrick McDonnell, Chief Business Officer at Biotalys.
