At Lida Plant Research, a biotechnological company with more than 30 years of experience in the sector and over 10 years of work on the development of plant vaccines®, we translate research findings into solutions to growers’ problems.
Our numerous field trials on different crops have shown that plant vaccines® are an essential tool to prevent both powdery mildew and mildew.
Activane, a plant vaccine® capable of amplifying plant defence signals.
At Lida Plant Research, we have taken the next step towards a new generation of plant vaccines®:
the Activane plant vaccine® is designed to amplify the plant’s defence signals, so that systemic resistance can establish quicker, for a longer period of time and more efficiently in order to fight diseases. The Activane plant vaccine® is an essential tool and a complement to fungicides that can be applied on fruit trees, horticultural crops and vine.
Fytosave to prevent powdery mildew
Another of our plant vaccines® is Fytosave. It is registered as a low-risk plant protection product and is used to control powdery mildew in greenhouse crops such as courgettes, cucumbers, squash, tomatoes, peppers, aubergines and melon, and to control both mildew and powdery mildew in table and wine grapes.
Plant vaccines are therefore a preventive means to apply elicitors to crop plants. Elicitors stimulate the plant’s immune system through its cell wall receptors, so that the plant is protected and prepared against a potential attack by the real pathogen.
