EcoPhage is focused on discovering and developing environmentally friendly products for disease control in agriculture. The company's technology uses bacteriophages (viruses that attack bacteria) for crop protection.
The technology was developed by Professor Rotem Sorek of Israel's Weizmann Institute of Science. Based on the discoveries made by Professor Sorek and now held by EcoPhage for crop protection under exclusive license from Yeda, the company is poised to develop effective, eco-friendly treatments against crop diseases. The company was formed as a joint venture between the Bayer Trendlines Ag Innovation Fund and Trendlines Group.
