Targenomix explores new mechanisms for crop protection solutions through novel biology and bioinformatics techniques. Bayer and Targenomix have been working together since 2014. Targenomix said it will continue to develop effective active ingredients to protect crops from weeds, diseases, and insects with Bayer as a strategic research partner.
