The MTU latke was created in the Laboratory of Growth Regulators, a joint work of Palacky University and the Academy v. R. Nisler said the latke prevents the breakdown of chlorophyll, which then accumulates in plants. This allows them to take in more carbon dioxide, produce more sugar and use that sweat to grow the taproot, as well as absorb more nutrients from the soil.
In an experiment from the University of Poznań in Poland, when one dose of the product was applied, the yield increased by 13 and 14 percent, and by 19 percent with two doses. Experiments by the company IntraCrop therefore showed that the same yield was achieved when applying nitrogen fertilizers when using their product as when using natural fertilizers.
According to Nisler, the big advantage of the discovery lies in the resistance of plants to climate change. Plants that are not stressed in the field can have ten to twenty percent more chlorophyll. Plants suffering from drought or high temperatures can have up to 50 percent more chlorophyll after applying this layer, which is very important, she said.
One hundred and a half grams per hectare of field, tough study
He changed it so that the manufactured product is used in very small quantities. Half a gram of lyca is used per hectare and tests from the Central Control and Experimental State of Agriculture have shown that it has no negative effect on the environment.
We don’t have to worry about toxicity, Nisler explains. Not only is the amount of pesticide applied to the soil negligible, but independent testing has shown that there is no negative effect on soil life. No insects, no plants, no animals, nothing.
Scientists point out that the major benefit of MTU lies in reducing the amount of fertilizer farmers use on the fields. the editor of the state of experimental botany, Jan Martinec, drew attention to the lack of fertilizers caused by the wolf in Ukraine and the rising prices of gas, which is necessary for the production of nitrogen fertilizers.
Academy of reported, that the car will now be produced in Germany, will be produced in Great Britain and will also be available in the Czech Republic, Poland and Hungary from 2023. Future sales to all EU countries, Ukraine, Turkey, Canada and the US are in full swing.
IntraCrop company editor Mark Palmer said they have tested it on a farm in Britain for a number of crops, including cowpea, wheatgrass, buckwheat, potatoes or fruit and vegetables, for example. He stated that the farm had a 5-15 percent increase in income due to the application of the coating and received positive feedback from farmers.
We’re very excited, we see this biostimulant with such a different single layer as the holy grail of the future, Palmer added.
The substance is cheap to make and takes a long time to work because it’s water soluble, it’s just fantastic, said state of experimental botany editor AVR Jan Martinec. In his vision, the lives of a million people around the world could be affected, especially in times of crisis.
The owner of the patent is the state of experimental botany AVR, which signed a licensing agreement in Norway this year with the British company IntraCrop.
