Improving Crop Yield

Farmers are increasingly challenged by factors ranging from weather to envi­ronmental conditions to crop prices as they look to increase crop yields in sustainable ways. 

SaliCrop Technology utilizes a unique non-GMO wet chemistry process that stimulates an epigenetic reaction to salinity conditions. In this manner, the treated seeds, which are deliberately exposed to abiotic stress at an early stage, are expected to grow well in high salinity soils or when irrigated with brackish water later on, and to resist the actual abiotic stress caused by salinity, heat stress, and drought. 


Generally, seed treatment technologies have many advantages and are cheaper or more versatile than other competing technologies such as gene editing, RNAi, selective breeding, or grafting. SaliCrop technology has been shown to be effective in multiple experiments with different crops under high salinity conditions.
 

This technology is versatile and can be applied to many different crops and seed varieties. In addition, two of its advantages are its low economic cost and logistical effort.

Competitive Advantage

Benefit for Growers

High ROI for growers  by increasing their financial income

Short time to market

Up to two years enhancement per breed/variety/jurisdiction

No change in farming practices

 Following the existing farm management practices

Maximizing the value of commercial varieties 

Salicrop is tackling a salinization problem which costs farmers more than $25 Billion a year

Plants worldwide face new stresses as a result of climate change, including increased soil salinity, drought, and higher temperatures. These issues are the most influential and fastest growing factors limiting crop growth, and SaliCrop is increasing resilience by making it possible to grow crops under these conditions. 

Around 52 million ha of land are salt-affected in South Asia 

Soil salinization is a global and dynamic problem and is projected to increase in future under climate change scenarios due to rising sea levels and increased extreme weather events, heavily impacting crop production in coastal areas.
