Plant Science Firm, Partner to Identify Biostimulants for Agricultural Applications
Tuesday, 2013/07/30 | 07:42:47

California-based plant science firm Mendel Biotechnology is pairing up with Fundación Medina, a Spanish non-profit organization focused on the discovery of new compounds from microbial origin with the aim of identifying biostimulants for agricultural applications. Biostimulants are agricultural chemical derived from natural sources that can be applied to improve crop productivity through improved stress tolerance, water and nutrient use efficiency, and overall growth and yield.


Under the terms of the agreement, Fundación Medina will provide Mendel with microbial extracts from culture collections. Mendel will be mining these collections, screening to identify natural products for crop-improving characteristics. Drought tolerance and increased yield will be the initial focus of Mendel's search.
