Learn about the benefits of phytovaccines and their advantages for cultivation.
Vaccines are the means by which “eliciting” molecules are applied to plants, activating their immune systems and, thus, they are protected and ready for when it arrives.
The defense system of plants is similar to that of mammals, but instead of generating antibodies, it is based on a series of receptors that are found in cells and that upon perceiving the presence of any pathogen activates its defense system.
When infectious bacteria and fungi interact with plant cells and contact these receptors, the plant resistance immune system is activated.
Vaccines are based on molecules that are characteristic of the structure of fungi and bacteria. These molecules are like the identity cards of pathogens that as soon as the plant recognizes them, it knows how to defend itself against them.
Vaccines are the means by which “eliciting” molecules are applied to plants, activating their immune systems and, thus, are protected and prepared for when the pathogen arrives.
Innate immunity:the most effective and strongest natural defence system.Innate immunity is the natural mechanism developed by plants throughout their evolution to adapt to the environment and to the unfavourable conditions in which they grow, and it is therefore the strongest and the most effective.
Their use allows the reduction of the use of chemical plant protection products, thus contributing to a more sustainable and healthier agriculture.
FytoSave® It is a new elicitor of the natural defenses of plants against powdery mildew diseases. The product is the result of research by the spin-off Fytofend of the University of Namur (Belgium), in collaboration with LIDA Plant Research.
Activane® is our signal amplified phytovaccine with a formulation based on micronutrients in a combination with amino acids specially designed to strengthen plant tissues and activate their internal defense mechanismsKNOW ACTIVANE
