About Us

Pheronym is an agricultural biotechnology company developing nontoxic solutions for plant protection. We use pheromones to control the behavior and development of microscopic roundworms called nematodes. The pheromones are water soluble, which makes them suitable for seed treatment. We have two products in the pipeline; PheroCoatTM and NemaStimTM. PheroCoat is a seed treatment that controls plant parasitic nematodes, which do not currently have a good solution. NemaStim controls beneficial nematodes, soil probiotics, for insect pest control. Currently, we are negotiating greenhouse demonstrations for NemaStim to enter the greenhouse growers market
