Monsanto will collaborate with agricultural chemical firm AgriMetis, a 2016 C&EN Start-up to Watch, on new insect protection compounds. AgriMetis creates semisynthetic compounds using Saccharopolyspora spinosa. The bacterium is currently the source of spinosad insecticides, which are made via fermentation. Agri­Metis chemically alters the fermentation product to improve characteristics such as potency and the species that can be targeted.
