We have applied our core technology to decrease germination time and increase the rate of growth of seedlings, sprouts, and other organisms. We are able to impact the development of both the radicle (root) and hypocotyl (shoot) with our patent pending process. Agricultural applications include reduction in days to harvest of both mature crops as well as immature crops such as bean and alfalfa sprouts. With the sprouting industry, for example, reduction in harvest time by 20-30% means an increase in production throughput, which increases revenue without the capital expense of a building expansion and associated heating, electricity and property taxes.
In the left picture, Mung bean seeds have been treated with our process in the left petri dish, and the right petri dish is the control.
In the center picture, Mung bean sprouts are depicted. The two sprouts on the left are untreated, and the two sprouts on the right have been treated with our process.
In the right picture, wheat grass sprouts are depicted. The sprouts on the left are untreated. The sprouts in the center have been treated with our process to encourage sprout growth, and the sprouts on the right have been treated with our process to encourage root growth.
