seek natural or biological methods for improving plant health and performance.
Areas of interest include:
- reducing or eliminating the effects of biotic stress, including insect, disease, weeds, nematodes or any other pest
- helping plants reach their full potential when under stress from heat, cold or drought
- improving the soil or uptake of nutrients
- biological or natural products include predatory insects, probiotics, extracts or broths from natural organisms and microbes that stimulate seedling or plant development. We are also interested in solutions that reduce competition from weeds, prevent or minimise consumption by herbivores, as well as new ways to produce or deliver these products to the growers that need them.
