Hi All !
We are developing products based on chitosan that are known to induce disease resistance in plants.
These have been tested on a variety of crops over 3 years at various locations in Maharashtra.
We wish to build a more wider database of tests, and therefore I am requesting all the members to try out our products and provide feed back.
We propose 10 free tests for each of the following crops:
- Apples 2.Cabbages, Cauliflower, Broccoli 3. Capsicum 4. Chillies and Capsicum 5. Cucumbers and gherkins 6. Eggplants 7. Ginger 8. Grapes 9. Maize 10. Okra 11. Pomegranate 12. Potatoes 13. Rice, paddy 14. Soybeans 15. Strawberry 16. Tomatoes 17. Wheat
We expect that you will test the product for a known problem. Use complete dose of our products. You may use all other treatments that you otherwise use for the said problem. If you can keep a small portion untreated (with our products) that would be ideal. At the end of the test you will share your exact results with respect to severity of the disease occurrence as well as yield.
I need suggestions to this approach (if any); and if you think any other crops need to be included in this list.
