Photon all natural with unique mode of action

Chuck Kupatt

A product aimed solely at reducing the impact of the environment on crop health is hitting the market this year. Photon is a natural foliar spray that Dr. Chuck Kupatt, Crop Microclimate Management (CMM) R & D Director, says features an enzyme that modifies the protein in the plant.  With this new technology Kupatt says, “that protein regulates about 450 other proteins and enzymes in the plant.  What we do is shift the state of that protein and it’s a stress-sensing molecule.”

Kupatt says Photon is not a silver bullet but hopefully will allow growers to remain productive when normally they wouldn’t. CMM is introducing Photon at a reduced rate of 10-dollars an acre with a limited launch for corn and soybean growers in the Midwest this year and a broader launch in 2016.
