The Solution : SoilFender is a novel soil disinfectant, based on a syntenic compound discovered in a novel endophytic fungus , highly effective against numerous crop pathogens including fungi, nematodes and weeds. SoilFender has no effect on soil-microbiome, can be implemented by irrigation and leaves no residues after 48 hours. The Need : Due to the controversial effect of nematicides and gradual phase-out of several prominent chemical nematicides in the last years including the ban of methyl bromide, there is a need for better generic, effective and non-hazardous nematicides.
The Solution : A bio-nematicide based on a predatory nematode, which eats the eggs and the juveniles of root-knot nematodes.
The Need : In warm weather regions, prolonged dormancy is the major obstacle for economic production of many crops, due to a short chilling period. Hydrogen Cyanimide HC is the only effective solution to induce bud-break in table grapes, apple, kiwifruit, peach, cherry and pistachio.
HC is already banned in Europe and under review in many other countries due to environmental reasons and since wrong application of HC harms the crop. Numerous field trials proved that BudUp has a similar effectiveness as HC of breaking bud dormancy. BudUp is not phytotoxic even if applied on non-dormant buds. The Need : Water shortage limits agriculture production globally.
Increasing the amount of HXK in guard cells allows plants to have much more efficient stomata, thus saves water, enhances growth and increases yield. The Need : Harvested fruits and vegetables quality deteriorates from picking to consumption. This happens mainly due to storage conditions and fungi. The Solution : PostBoost induces tolerance in harvested fruits and vegetables to various pathogens, thus prolonging shelf-life and reducing waste.
Proven in experiments conducted on Avocado, Citrus, Mango and Strawberry.
The material also induces tolerance to chilling, thus enables to adjust storage conditions and reduce waste caused by chilling damages.

DD Innovative sensor to measure nitrate levels in the soil to improve fertilization regime 5. DD Improving bio-availability of protein in fish diet 6. The Need : Improving the efficacy of existing crop-protection products and reduce the usage of hazardous materials. The Solution : A generic biological crop-protection solution that induce tolerance in crops against various pathogens, including insects, fungus, bacteria and viruses.
Can be implemented as a stand-alone product or as enhancer to chemical crop-protection products that improves their performance and reduces the usage of hazardous materials.
