Fyteko


Fyteko innovates in developing new biobased signal molecules that help crops better cope with climate change.

Fyteko is a young innovative company developing and producing through green chemistry advanced plant signal molecules. It focuses on the understanding of plant stress responses and how to trigger or enhance the plant’s tolerance.

Their mission is to address the key challenges that many areas of the world are facing today due to climate change. Even if an environment of increasingly scare resources, they know that they can make a difference in countering the adverse effects of events such as droughts and heats.

Part of an extensive R&D collaborative network, Fyteko works with professional researchers and biotechnology experts on finding new sustainable solutions to guarantee and increase yields in full respect of agriculture values and practices.

Nurspray

Offer Nurspray

Description
Nurspray is a foliar spray which contains a Signal Molecule designed to help crops recover from conditions of stress.

Fyteko's key concept is to induce, thanks to the use of a novel Signal Molecule, important osmolytes and antioxidants that the plants naturally accumulate during hydric stress. the internal pre-activation triggers off the plant's capacity to resist better, respond faster and to recover more quickly and efficiently after a stress. Over a full crop cycle, use of Nurspray technology can be measured by substantial final yield gain. In addition, Nurspray is a sustainable non toxic solution, which is compatible with sustainable farming and help maintain the soil biodervisity.
