Valent BioSciences LLC has announced the construction of a new manufacturing facility in White City, Oregon to meet the increasing demands and projected future growth for its MycoApply arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) products.
This new plant will complement the existing headquarters and manufacturing operations for its subsidiary company, Mycorrhizal Applications LLC, in Grants Pass, Oregon.
Mycorrhizal Applications researches and markets mycorrhizal fungi. These specialized fungi colonize plant roots to create a symbiotic root-and-mycelial network within the surrounding soils, increasing efficiency in nutrient and water absorption to optimize plant hardiness and vigour. The White City facility will produce AMF that are utilized in the agriculture, horticulture, and turf and ornamental markets.
