- Plant Health Care has signed an agreement with a second major industry player regarding the evaluation of its Innatus 3G peptide platform.

This technology enables the design, screening and production of a large pipeline of peptides with diverse bio-stimulant properties.

The peptides can provide improved yields, pest and disease resistance, and protection against abiotic stress in a wide range of crops.

Peptides can be combined with conventional crop protection chemicals in seed treatment and foliar applications, making them highly complementary to existing practices.

CEO Paul Schmidt commented:

"Our goal was to sign at least two evaluation agreements for our Innatusâ„¢ 3G peptide platform this year and we have accomplished that within the first five months. We are targeting the largest players and these agreements reflect the potential value they see in our platform. Our dialogue with other major players is on-going."
