“PREtec is a novel class of technology which stimulates a plants’ immune system to defend itself from a variety of abiotic stresses to improve plant health and yield,” the North Carolina-based agricultural products firm explained.
Plant Health said that preliminary studies indicate promising results, with PREtec products in potatoes resulting in “improved” potato qualify and yield. It also has a “significantly” lower environmental impact compared to other agrochemical treatments.
The company said that Agrii will conduct field trials of PREtec products on UK potatoes, in combination with a novel Agrii fertilizer blend.
