Harpe Bioherbicide is developing a bioherbicide that promises to tackle herbicide-resistant weeds. 

There’s got to be a way to approach herbicide resistant weeds and be more efficient, less risky and looking future-forward. As such we are working on products developed truly for this century,” says Chad Brommer, co-founder and chief technology officer at Harpe Bioherbicide. 

The non-selective contact herbicide targets multiple sites of action, including disrupting photosynthesis and compromising energy production in the mitochondria. The company has identified extracts from plants, including those in the mentha family, as a potential source for their herbicide. Harpe plans to test a platform of bioherbicides across 150 field trials across the country this year. 

Harpe Bio’s goal is to divest the company in 2024, with the potential to have commercial products available as early as 2025.
