Helping seeds thrive in climatic stress conditions.
Field-grown crops are almost always exposed to stressful environments. That is the reason why field crops hardly ever realize their true yield potential.
The presence of salts in the soil is an important abiotic stress factor that affects the plant uptake of nutrients and the microbiological activity in the soil.
SaliCrop's formulation is applied at early growth stages as a seed enhancement, stimulating a reaction that increases the plant's capability to endure salinity, heat, and drought conditions.
Salicrop's environmentally friendly solution is creating a reaction cascade spread systemically in the plant to induce a long-term effect on the plant.
Since 2018, Salicrop has developed more than 100 protocols and has increased up to 30% yield in salinity conditions of processed tomatoes, peppers, onion, rice, corn, wheat, and Alfalfa,
Rice Field Trials in India
In 2018, after conducting trials in villages of Maharashtra for 3 years, we were able to achieve a constant yield increase with up to 32% increment in a single year.
Next, we joined the TATA Trust & TAU program to bring Israeli innovation to Indian smallholder rice farmers in the state of Andhra Pradesh in East Godavari District and achieved up to a 19% yield increase.
In 2021, in Karnataka, we achieved up to a 17% yield increase.
About 36% of the world's population is dependent on wheat as a staple food.
Among various field crops, wheat is more sensitive to salinity.
Various climate models projected that wheat production could decrease by 6% due to stressful environments.
Salicrop conducted a few successful wheat field trials for gain and for silage. The trials show a yield Increase between 5% - 15% in the different trials.
The maize market is at 1.14 billion metric ton in 2020. Maize is a leading crop in Salicrop's activity.
Salicrop has conducted a field in collaboration with Kibbutz Yotveta grower in the Southern tip of Israel. The field trial was irrigated with salty (brackish) water of EC 5 to 2.5.
The trial of EC 5-6 yielded 57% more than the untreated field.
The growing demand for feed is supporting the global barley market.
Salicrop is collecting data from a large field study in Gan Shammuel, in the center of Israel. The area is suffering from high soil salinity caused by fish ponds.
The aim of the study is to examine stress tolerance and yield.
The consumption of processed tomato products in developing countries is growing at a significant rate.
the market reached a volume of 43.4 Million Tons in 2021.
Salicrop is focused on seed enhancement of processed and field tomatoes. Tomato productivity in open field conditions is affected by a high incidence of increased soil salinity. We uncovered specific responses of tomato plants to salinity stress.
Our field trials show a massive increase of yield in the treated farms of 60%.
From August 2019 to March 2020 Salicrop conducted
response trail in a commercial farm in Faran, Arava desert in the south of Israel.
The trial was planned to validate the efficacy of Salicrop various protocols on the yield of three Capsicum varieties.
Two Capsicum varieties, Delux and Top were treated with 8 different priming protocols.
Soil Salinity was around EC=3.0 throughout the growing period. Out of 8 protocols for Delux and TOP Salicrop technology resulted in a yield increase of 12%-14% on average.
