Salicrop has placed a strong emphasis on enhancing the cultivation of open-field tomatoes and processing tomatoes under abiotic stress conditions. Recognizing the challenges posed by environmental factors such as extreme temperatures, water scarcity, and soil salinity, Salicrop has dedicated significant resources to research and development in this area.

 

 

By enhancing these tomatoes, the company strives to ensure higher yields, superior quality, and enhanced sustainability for farmers operating in challenging environments.

Furthermore, Salicrop actively collaborates with experts, agricultural institutions, and farmers to gain valuable insights and develop tailored solutions for each commercial variety.  This collaborative approach helps to identify specific stress factors 

By focusing on enhancing open-field tomatoes and processing tomatoes for abiotic stress conditions, Salicrop aims to empower farmers and contribute to the stability and productivity of their operations. The ultimate goal is to create resilient tomato crops that can thrive in adverse environmental conditions, ensuring a consistent supply of high-quality tomatoes while minimizing the impact of abiotic stress on agricultural productivity.

Salicrop has been actively involved in enhancing alfalfa seeds to exhibit increased tolerance to salinity stress. Understanding the detrimental effects that high soil salinity can have on alfalfa crops, Salicrop has undertaken extensive research and development efforts in this area.

Through rigorous experimentation and field observations over a period of two years, Salicrop has observed remarkable results. The data collected indicates a notable 10-30 percent increase in yield for alfalfa plants subjected to salinity stress. This significant improvement demonstrates the success of Salicrop's focus on alfalfa varieties that can thrive in saline soil conditions.

By enhancing the salinity stress tolerance of alfalfa seeds, Salicrop aims to provide farmers with more resilient and productive crop options. This increased tolerance not only ensures a higher yield but also contributes to the overall stability and sustainability of alfalfa cultivation in regions where salinity stress is a concern.

The company's continued efforts in this area hold great promise for the future of alfalfa cultivation, offering opportunities for increased productivity and economic prosperity for farmers worldwide.

Over the past four years, Salicrop has been deeply engaged in enhancing the salinity tolerance of three distinct rice varieties in India. Through extensive research and development efforts, in collaboration with strategic partners, we have made significant strides in improving rice cultivation in salinity-affected areas.

The focus of our activities has been on developing rice varieties that can thrive in high salinity conditions, a prevalent challenge faced by farmers in certain regions of India. 

The results of our collaborative endeavors have been remarkable. Field observations conducted in various areas have consistently demonstrated an impressive increase in yield ranging from 14 to 25 percent. This improvement in productivity not only contributes to the food security of local communities but also presents economic opportunities for farmers in salinity-affected regions.

As we look to the future, Salicrop remains committed to further enhancing the salinity tolerance of rice varieties and expanding our partnerships.
