Plant Health Care signs agreement to conduct potato trials with Agrii in the UK

Plant Health Care PLC on Monday said it has entered a trials agreement with Agrii UK Ltd, under which Agrii will evaluate Plant Health’s PREtec technology, as Sophie Rose reports for Alliance News.

“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.
