Biological solutions can be used to improve nutrient uptake, control insects and protect against diseases while improving yield benefits and increasing the resilience of crops for more sustainable farming practices.
At FMC, we live and breathe innovation. We are committed to discovering new ways of safeguarding crop yields while protecting biodiversity and natural resources.
Our dedication to sustainable agriculture drives our R&D organization to develop biological products with performance attributes that exceed the competition, including longer shelf life, performance at lower use rates and compatibility with other chemistries. Our robust portfolio and pipeline of differentiated biologicals combined with investments in biologicals and adjacent technologies enable the continued expansion of our award-winning portfolio.
Biologicals by FMC
Our aim is to be the responsible change-maker, leading the way with an integrated approach, where biologicals go hand-in-hand with synthetics.
Biologicals by FMC is the overarching brand for FMC’s new generation of award-winning biologicals:
- Products crafted to work in combination with synthetics for optimal performance and higher yields
- Solutions produced to ensure sustainability for generations of growers
- A product portfolio that works to enhance soil health and biodiversity on the farm
Biologicals bring new modes of action and aid in extending the usefulness of existing chemistry. As a pre-mix, tank mix or as a rotational product, biologicals can be a sustainable tool to address growers’ evolving needs and tackle resistance while helping to prolong the life cycle of synthetics and protecting the environment. And when used with FMC’s precision and digital agriculture platforms, our combined solutions can enhance crop protection and plant health throughout the growing season to improve yield quality and quantity at harvest.

Quartzo® bionematicide (Bacillus licheniformis and Bacillus subtilis) an in-furrow application, was commercially launched in 2018 for Brazil. Already having established the leading position in the management of nematodes in sugarcane crops, Quartzo® and Presence® bionematicides were recognized with the top honor as Best New Biological Product (Biopesticide) at the 2020 Crop Science Forum and Awards.
Presence® bionematicide (Bacillus licheniformis and Bacillus subtilis) is a seed treatment used primarily for soybean applications, launched in Brazil. It offers an alternative mode of action to combat difficult-to-control pests like nematodes.
Accudo® biostimulant was first registered in South Korea as a bio-fertilizer for use in Fruits and Vegetable (F&V) crops. With a superior yield increase, it enhances root development and has anti-fungal tolerance. Accudo® biostimulant was recognized with the top honor in the Best Biostimulant Product category at the 2022 World BioProtection Awards, and as Best New Biological Product (Biostimulant) at the 2020 Crop Science Forum and Awards.
Zironar™ biofungicide/bionematicide (Bacillus licheniformis and Bacillus subtilis), a root-colonizing biological used at planting in cotton, corn, soybean and sugarbeets launched in the U.S. in 2022. It provides season-long protection against critical fungal diseases and soil nematodes.
Seamac® Rhizo Biostimulant
Seamac® Rhizo biostimulant is a unique blend of amino acids, nutrients and seaweed that is designed for the alleviation of abiotic stress across a wide range of crops. Seamac® Rhizo is available in multiple countries in Europe and Asia and launching in Mexico in 2022.
Furagro™ Legend Biofertilizer
Furagro™ Legend biofertilizer helps farmers in India to improve crops’ response to drought. The product works at a very low dose rate and is powered by SURGE Technology (Selective Upregulation of Gene Expression) that improves a plant’s gene activation responsible for various plant functions. FMC plans to make this solution available to growers across multiple countries in Asia and Europe starting in 2022/23.
