Meristem Crop Performance Group, based in Columbus, Ohio, has teamed up with 3Bar Biologics to develop advanced delivery systems that promise to significantly boost the effectiveness of a wide range of biological products. This partnership leverages 3Bar’s expertise in packaging design and manufacturing with Meristem’s BIO-CAPSULETM delivery system technology, aimed at expanding Meristem’s biologicals portfolio.
With 3Bar’s capabilities in creating unique packaging and delivery solutions for biological products, Meristem is sure to rapidly expand its presence in the biologicals market. According to Mitch Eviston, the founder and CEO of Meristem Crop Performance, 3Bar’s ability to develop innovative ways to protect and deliver microbes sets them apart in the industry and makes them the ideal partner for swiftly bringing BIO-CAPSULETM to the market.
