We develop solutions to stimulate the growth
and natural immunity of plants

Microbiological Platform

We base our microbiological platform on the development of consortia of microorganisms as biological control agents / plant growth stimulants. These types of microorganisms are isolated from different agroecosystems with different stress conditions, such as water or saline stress.

Consortium of Microorganisms

Our consortium of microorganisms uses the bacterium Bacillus spp. which acts as a soil probiotic, improving the functioning of the microbiome.

Mechanisms of action:

– Production of substances that promote plant growth (solubilization and nutrient absorption).

– Production of metabolites with antifungal properties

-Induction of the plant defense system.

-Colonization of the rhizosphere: mobility and biofilm formation and competition with pathogens for nutrients.

In turn, it is enhanced with the benefits of the fungus Trichoderma spp. which is a biological control agent against various phytopathogens. It is used in foliar applications, seed and soil treatment for the control of various diseases caused by fungi.

Mechanisms of action:

-Production of plant growth stimulating substances.

-Antibiosis: Production of metabolites with antifungal activity.

Mycoparasitism: Production of hydrolytic enzymes (chitinases, glucanases, proteases) that destroy the structures of pathogenic fungi.

Colonization of the soil and seed quickly, preventing the entry of pathogens to the plant;
Induction of the immune system of plants.

Biotechnology Platform

We base our biotechnological platform on EPP (Elicitor-Protection-Promotion) technology phytovaccines with more than 30 proteins that induce the response of the immune system of plants. We have proteins with Bioinsecticidal and Bionemiticidal activity.

Factors that will drive the use of Biomolecules

Functioning of phytovaccines (elicitors):

Phytovaccines are molecules that alert the presence of the invading pathogen when recognized by the host plant. When the plant recognizes this molecule early, it produces a rapid activation of its defense mechanisms, which block the infection, stopping the advance of the pathogen.

The recognition of the phytovaccine is carried out through specific plant receptors, triggering the activation of growth and reproduction processes and defense systems against biotic and abiotic stress.

Some of the processes that are identified are the induction of various PR genes (pathogenicity proteins), accumulation of phytoalexins, induction of reactive oxygen species (ROS), hypersensitivity reaction (HR) and activation of genes involved in plant growth. When this compound is applied to plants, they recognize the elicitor molecule through specific receptors in the plant, which induces natural enzymatic processes that cause increased development (higher biomass), reproductive capacity (more flowers). and fruits) and natural defense mechanisms against abiotic stress (healthier plants).
