Bacteria growing on surfaces create biofilms, which are resistant to antimicrobial treatments.

These biofilms pose a significant problem for agriculture and food safety.

This video shows the breakdown of an E. amylovora biofilm by dicty amoebae.

What if there were a better way to control plant infections?

AgraFilms has harnessed the natural predatory
power of amoebae to do just that.

Becterial pathogen

Dicty spores rapidly germinate into amoebae

The amoebae replicate in the presence of their bacterial prey and start hunting

Finally, the amoebae digest the targeted pathogen, eliminating the threat.

Our technology revolutionizes biocontrol by harnessing this natural behavior. We identify specific amoebic strains to target individual pathogens.

What makes amoebae
so special?

Our use of Dicty amoebae is a significant step forward for agriculture for many reasons.


Proven effectiveness

against numerous pathogens


Specificity of action

against plant



Suitable for treating infections

caused by antibiotic-resistant, antibiotic-tolerant, and persister bacteria


Naturally occurring

and safe for humans, animals, and plants


Resilient spores

can survive extreme environments, from the tundra to the tropics


Long shelf life

of dormant spores simplifies storage and transportation



to crops and the environment



and will not persist once their job is done

Natural Predation

All organic and Non-GMO
