About Our Company
Salicrop is a growing seed enhancement company developing groundbreaking technology shaping the future of sustainable food supply in an environment that diminishes crop yields in the face of droughts, soil salinity and higher temperatures.
Salicrop has developed formulations of effective and safe products that address abiotic stresses. It combines a non-GM, high-performance formulation with a clean safety profile which are intended to maintain or increase crop yields by providing seeds with tolerance to stress conditions.
By growing in degraded and marginal lands, SaliCrop is contributing to the development of sustainable agriculture.
SaliCrop’s vision aligns with SDG goals calling for urgent action to combat climate change impacts.
In the wake of climate change, the most important crops - limiting factors are heat stress, drought, soil & water salinity.
More than 800 million hectares of soil are salt -affected.
50% of all arable land will be affected by soil salinity by 2050, causing world economy loss of $40 billion annually.
UN predicts a 12% food production decrease in the next 25 years, as a direct result of land and soil degradation, likely to lead to a 30% rise in food prices.
UN estimates a loss of 2 million hectares/year due to drought and desertification, reflecting a potential loss of 20 million tons of grain, per year.
Increased groundwater salinity
Lack of fresh -water resources for agricultural irrigation is limiting the sustainable development of agriculture worldwide.
