Pebble Labs is developing a novel, sustainable, and broadly applicable biological platform focused on plant and animal health for food production. Losses to diseases and pests in food production are substantial; globally, it’s estimated that up to 40% of yields are lost every year. Our platform technology, Directed Biotics™, delivers safe and effective biological solutions to sustainably protect crop yields and quality by targeting formidable pests and diseases. The key to our Directed Biotics™ technology is delivery: our precision engineered, endosymbiotic microbes are living biofactories that deliver RNA molecules continuously and systemically, safely and effectively provide RNA-based protection against the diseases and pests we are targeting. Our first Directed Biotics™ products are applications in agriculture and aquaculture.
