Applications

According to market studies, we target 4 markets :
- Seeds: High demand in volume, organic, high quality
- Grow: Will buy less fertilizers and phytosanitary products every year. Will get a better yield (mass of salable product)
- Post-harvest: Will buy less sanitizers, fungicide, ethylene blockers products every year
- Stock, logistic, retailers: Will garbage less fruits and vegetables (that stands for up to 30% of their production) by managing better the ripening and shelf life
