MustGrow Biologics (CSE: MGRO) (OTCQB: MGROF) (FRA: 0C0) is an agricultural biotech company focused on developing and commercializing natural biological solutions for high-value crops, including fruits and vegetables. The company uses novel compounds from the mustard plant to provide superior and safer alternatives to current synthetic chemicals used as pesticides, fungicides and nematicides. Management & advisors own 22% of the company’s 37 million shares outstanding.

Leveraging its innovative platform, MustGrow effectively extracts the natural defense mechanisms of the mustard seed for broad use in crop production and protection. The company uses components of mustard seed to provide high quality, organic pest control to growers facing challenges associated with soil-borne diseases and pests like nematodes. This company’s all-natural, effective, safe and easy-to-use solution is ideal for farmers looking to raise healthy crops without chemical pesticides amid growing concerns worldwide over the negative effects of chemical pesticide solutions.

MustGrow, which went public in 2019, was founded in Saskatoon, Canada, and is currently focused on disrupting the $65 billion global pesticide market with its 100% owned and patented mustard-derived technology. Canada produces 28% of the global mustard crop and is the world’s largest exporter, with a 57% market share.

TerraMG and Pipeline

The company’s technology extracts the mustard plant’s natural organic compounds, which, when combined with water, form Allyl isothiocyanate (AITC) and serve as a natural defense mechanism for the plant against pests and diseases. MustGrow’s mustard-derived technology acts as both a natural bio-pesticide and as a non-selective bio-herbicide.

There are currently more than 110 independent third-party trials that confirm the safety and efficacy of MustGrow’s solutions, potentially positioning the company as a leading provider of safe plant protection solutions in a market that is gradually eliminating the use of chemical compounds.

MustGrow’s primary product at the moment is the new liquid formulation TerraMG, which has the potential to compete against existing chemistries on both efficacy and price. Its initial target market is as a pre-plant soil bio-pesticide for use with higher-value crops such as fruits and vegetables. This liquid formulation is safe and easy to transport and has already demonstrated its efficacy against several pests and diseases.

In addition to its use as a pre-plant soil treatment, TerraMG has significant potential for multiple applications in several other markets, which is expected to aggressively expand the company’s IP portfolio. MustGrow has already confirmed or is in the process of testing multiple applications of TerraMG, including fruit and vegetable soil fumigation ($1.2 billion estimated global market), container fumigation ($2 billion estimated global market), tobacco nematode and disease fumigation ($4 billion estimated global loss), non-selective herbicide ($13 billion estimated global market), food-borne pathogens ($15 billion estimated global market) and more.

The company anticipates registration approval for the liquid formulation (TerraMG) as a pre-plant bio-pesticide for soil-borne diseases and pests from the EPA (United States) and PMRA (Canada) in 2021. The company already has EPA and PMRA approval for the product’s granular form.

Currently, MustGrow’s pipeline also includes:

  • TerraMG, a pre-plant soil bio-pesticide, for:
    • Fruit & Vegetable– currently in Phase 4
    • Turf & Ornamental– currently in Phase 4
    • Tobacco– currently in Phase 4
    • Potatoes– currently in Phase 4
    • Canola– targeting Clubroot Disease – currently in Phase 3: Advanced Development/Field Trials
    • Bananas– targeting Fusarium wilt TR4 – currently in Phase 1: Proof of Concept/Laboratory
    • Pulse Crops– targeting Aphanomyces – currently in Phase 1: Proof of Concept/Laboratory
  • Non-Selective Bio-Herbicide– targeting noxious or resistant weeds – currently in Phase 2: Early Development/Greenhouse
  • Storage Bio-Pesticide for Bulk Grain, Fresh Produce– targeting toxins, diseases and insects – currently in Phase 1: Proof of Concept/Laboratory
  • Storage Bio-Pesticide for Shipping Containers– targeting fungus, invasive pests and diseases – currently in Phase 1: Proof of Concept/Laboratory
  • Bio-Pesticide for Foodborne Pathogens– targeting E. coli, salmonella, Listeria, human pathogens, etc. – currently in Phase 1: Proof of Concept/Laboratory

Market Opportunity

The protection of crops with synthetic chemical pesticides represents a $65 billion-dollar global market that is expected to grow in the coming years as the global population grows and needs more food. This number doesn’t include bio-pesticide sales, which are projected to increase to $8.5 billion by 2025, with a CAGR of 14.7%. MustGrow, with its natural bio-pesticide, is targeting not only the bio-pesticide market, but also the global synthetic chemical market so as to help replace harmful synthetic pesticides and provide a natural biologic that has the efficacy of controlling pests and disease compared to synthetic chemicals in some instances.
