Partnering opportunity

Knowledge, methodologies and solutions for a free-residue agriculture projects

Summary

A Spanish company has developed a technology for a residue-free agriculture by using innovative bio-stimulant solutions formulated from plant and mineral extracts. They look for partners interested in developing together new solutions for specific needs and/or partners interested in jointly tackling R&D ideas for new products or applications. Research cooperation and/or technical cooperation are expected.

Partner sought

- Type of partner: company, research/technology centre, university - Activity of the partner: manufacturer or user of products to grow vegetable foods, researchers in crop growth issues - Role of the partner sought: joint development of new products and/or joint sharing of interesting ideas/knowledge for new projects to be carried out together

Description

Crops treated with conventional products generate food with chemical residues that may be harmful to the health of any consumer. Sometimes the established safety limits are not respected by the producers and this may have a very negative impact for humans, insects and other animals and plants. Furthermore, these bad practices contribute to the destruction of the biodiversity and the environment. Because of that, the regulatory authorities are restricting day by day the use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides and there is an urgent need of searching new solutions applicable in agriculture to old and new menaces. The use of natural raw materials, together with botanicals extracts and minerals for the production of fertilizers, bio-pesticides and bio-fungicides products, provide efficient solutions to all these challenges and allow growers get the solutions they need accomplishing with the regulatory biddings. A Spanish company has developed bio-stimulant solutions from plant and mineral extracts that allow the practice of a completely residue-free agriculture. They cover all the steps of the growing process from sowing or planting to harvesting providing in each step the required product for an optimus evaluation of the plant. They research, develop and manufacture new natural fertilizers, biopesticides and biofungicides based on plants and minerals extracts, with the technology developed. They work together with the farmers listening to their needs and problems, in order to tackle new projects to develop the required products. They also provide technical advice regarding the use of their products in organic and/or chemical residue free agriculture, which respect the environment and allow farmers to produce their crops at competitive prices avoiding the use or the excess of chemical pesticides. Until now the solutions they have developed can be applied to different growing stages and to solve different problems in the crops: - Crop nutrition, including rooting compounds, amino acids and deficiency correctors - Plants resistance to problems arising from excess of moisture - Plants resistance to pests and diseases - Microorganisms, mixtures of metabolites derived from microbial fermentation, that have demonstrated efficacy in hydric stress soils Currently the company is looking for, on the one hand, partners with specific needs to develop together new solutions for environment-friendly products and, on the other hand, companies or other organization interested in searching together ideas for R&D projects and new developments. Research cooperation and/or technical cooperation are envisaged.

Advantages and innovations

Compared to the conventional methods and solutions, the ones developed by the Spanish company improve crop quality with full respect for human health and the environment, and they also contribute to stimulation, recovery and maintenance of the natural fertility of the soil, helping to protect without chemical residues native plants and animal species. They cover all the growers’ needs and allow them to stand out, to increase their profitability and to open up to new markets with greater added value, that is to say selling high quality healthy fruits and vegetables for consumers at large markets at a competitive price. The products are adapted respecting always the law of each country in which they are going to be applied. They are registered in the correspondent public organization, abiding all the legal requirements.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
