Last 5th of April, Dr. Iker Hernández, Head of the Molecular Biology Unit of the R&D Department of Futureco Bioscience, participated in a Technical Workshop at the Wine Business School in Vilafranca del Penedès, with the presentation "Development of bio-pesticide products for biocontrol of diseases on vineyards". This year, the XXX edition of the Congress of Oenologists concurred with the XXXVI edition of the International Cava Congress. Both congresses were held...

How to certify that an agricultural input is suitable for organic farming?

Published on

To affirm that a product is suitable for use in ecological, organic or biological farming, it has to be certified. There are several certificates, which mostly vary in the territorial scope in which they apply, regional, national and international. The accrediting entities, depending on the country, can be independent or managed by the public administration. These accreditations require a series of conditions on the production, storage, manufacture, packaging, and distribution of the products...

Published on

Futureco Bioscience has discovered nematicidal activity in industrial byproducts of plant origin, as confirmed by the results of the trials of the Enzytech project, collected in Ecoletter 24. The general aim of the Enzytech project, was to design the bases to develop a biotechnological process that would allow obtaining substances with biostimulant and/or phytosanitary action, from the protein fraction of different local by-products of plant origin. This project was presented to...

FitoMaat®, biostimulant to prevent and overcome abiotic stress situations

FitoMaat, biostimulant to overcome abiotic stress situations

Published on

FitoMaat® is a biostimulant formulated with 100% compounds of natural plant origin and a high anti-stress capacity. Preventive applications help minimise the effects of abiotic stress, therefore contributing to maintaining normal crop growth in adverse conditions. The high concentration of osmoprotective molecules guarantees that the photosynthetic rate and protein synthesis are maintained. FitoMaat® is suitable for all types of abiotic stress: heat, cold, drought and salinity....

Applications of Bestcure® to prevent and cure diseases and infections on agricultural crops

Bestcure, botanical extract

Published on

Bestcure® is an organic fungicide and bactericide with direct and indirect antimicrobial action, formulated with substances that activate the plants’ natural defences against fungi and bacteria. Bestcure® contains some furanocoumarins (exogenous phytoalexins) that activate plant defences against pathogens. The bioflavonoids (vitamin P) prevent oxidation of the ascorbic acid, enhancing its effect on plants. Both compounds have antioxidant properties, allowing for a synergistic...

Impact on gene expression in plants treated with FitoMaat®

Classification (gene ontologies) of genes overexpressed in plants treated with FitoMaat®

Classification (gene ontologies) of genes overexpressed in plants treated with FitoMaat®

Published on

We have published the Ecoletter 23 that includes the trials that show that FitoMaat® improves the response of plants to stress by enhancing the expression of genes for tolerance to desiccation. These trials have been done through the Futuromics platform, with Sequentia Biotech. FitoMaat® is a biostimulant designed to protect plants from the effects of abiotic stress, formulated with osmoprotective and antioxidant substances that allow crops to tolerate and recover better from periods...

Here comes the sun

The sun is one of the main sources of energy for plants

The sun is one of the main sources of energy for plants

Published on

June 21 is the world's day of the sun, one of the main energy sources of plants and algae to transform an inorganic substrate into usable organic matter for the metabolism and growth of its cells and tissues. This process of transformation is known as photosynthesis, and in plants it takes place in the chloroplasts, organelles of plant cells. Photosynthesis can be summarized as the chemical process that takes place in plants thanks to an essential biomolecule for this process to take place:...
