Innovasive Environmental, L.L.C. - https://innovasiveenvironmental.com - is a small pre-seed startup that is undertaking a long term effort to address two significant issues of our time: 1) environmental damage from invasive plant species & 2) rapidly evolving weed resistance to agricultural herbicides that are threatening food production worldwide. It proposes as a potential solution a novel approach to develop plant species-specific herbicides based on the species’ genome that is non-toxic to the surrounding environment and population but effective for that plant species: a platform technology.
United Nations: “Second biggest threat to global biodiversity after habitat loss – invasive species”
Innovasive Environmental’s POD® (Programmed Organic Demise):
*paradigm-shifting herbicide platform technology for invasive plants & agriculture
*Addresses 2 global issues:
· Environmental damage from invasive species
· Rapidly evolving weed resistance to agricultural herbicides that are threatening food production worldwide
*Global herbicide market sales $35B/year- increasing @$1b/year
*Invasive enviro cost > $138B/year - U.S. crops reduced 20%/yr; costs U.S. $70B
*IE's POD® MOA (Method Of Action)-> self-generated wave systemic Programmed Cell Death (PCD) by endogenously biosynthesized phytotoxin.
Innovasive Environmental’s Programmed Organic Demise™ (POD™):
*activates plant’s natural PCD (Programmed Cell Death)->
· transitions to POD™ - triggers are applicable only to targeted plant species.
