Alfalfa Growth under Saline Condition in Beit Shean Valley, Israel
A recent field trial conducted by Salicrop on Alfalfa plants demonstrated an increase in yield and plant biomass for treated plants under salinity stress. The treated plants showed a 25% increase in yield compared to untreated plants. These results suggest that the application of Salicrop's seed enhancement confers a high level of salinity tolerance in Alfalfa plants and enables them to produce a higher forage yield. These findings have significant potential for the use of Salicrop's seed enhancement in Alfalfa fields facing saline stress worldwide.
Processing Tomato Seed Enhancement under Salinity Stress
Salinity stress is a major barrier to agricultural productivity and food security worldwide, as it can alter plant physiology and lead to decreased plant growth, reduced crop quality, and lower yield. Improved seed quality is an important factor in the sustainability of crop production in a changing climate. Salicrop has developed technology that has been shown to improve the yield and quality of processing tomatoes under salinity and heat stress conditions. In 2022, with support from the Ministry of Agriculture and the Innovation Authority, Salicrop conducted field trials on 25 hectares in the Beit Shean Valley in northern Israel, a region known for its combination of warm, dry climate, saline irrigation water, and salty soils. These trials demonstrated that Salicrop's seed enhancement technology improved various indices, including seed germination and emergence, seedling establishment, crop development, and yield parameters under stressful conditions. The enhanced seeds were able to produce significant biomass, leading to improved water transpiration, increased resistance to pests and diseases, stronger detachment tissue, and ultimately average commercial yield has increased by 15%.
Rice Field Trials in India Demonstrate Three Years of Increased Yields in Multiple Regions
It has been estimated that soil salinization in India results in a yearly loss of 16.84 million tons of agricultural production, including cereals, oilseeds, pulses, and cash crops, with a value of approximately 230.20 billion Indian rupees. SaliCrop utilizes seed technology and customized formulations to improve crop growth under climatic stress. In India, rice field trials were conducted in Pen village (Raigad District, Maharashtra), East Godavari District (Andhra Pradesh), and Rengapuram Camp (Raichur District, Karnataka) in 2018, 2019, and 2020 on various rice varieties. The results showed that SaliCrop's seed treatment increased yield in all trials, resulting in a crop yield increase of 8% to 32%.
Field Trials of Onions in Extreme Conditions Yield Encouraging Results
Salicrop recently conducted a field trial of enhanced onion seeds in the salty fields of southern Israel's desert region. Working in collaboration with the Yotveta Farm organization, our previous season's experiment resulted in a 17% increase in the weight of marketable onions. Encouraged by these promising results, we have expanded our trials to cover larger areas and are also testing additional varieties for their ability to thrive in salinity conditions. Stay tuned for updates from the current season's trials as we continue to push the boundaries of plant resilience and yield
Maximizing Peas Yield Under Salinty Stress
The R&D team at Salicrop is dedicated to improving the cultivation of this new crop. Our team works tirelessly to develop enhancement solutions to be applied to the seeds which address the salinity stress which leads to a decline in yield. we are closely monitoring its progress in the field together with the farming organization, Tirat Zvi.
Successful Field Trials with Bell Peppers Result in Improved Yield
SaliCrop's innovative technology has been rigorously tested in extended field trials conducted in partnership with Green Arava Ltd, one of Israel's leading capsicum growers. In these trials, which took place over the course of three years on both commercial farms and in a research station located in southeast Israel, SaliCrop was able to achieve an impressive increase in yield of up to 32% across three different capsicum varieties.
SaliCrop's technology is proven to be highly effective at increasing crop productivity, making it a valuable asset for any farmer.
