Plant Health

If you are a large commercial farm or love getting your hands dirty in your home garden, nothing is more rewarding then seeing your hard work, time and investment pay off, resulting in lush green foliage, plants blossoming and acquiring healthy fruit to harvest.

We encourage you to explore and become more aware of the utilization of emerging technology for effective crop production. The agriculture sector has adopted technology-based farming termed as “smart farming” due to the challenges faced in agricultural production in enhancing crop production, plant disease. Over time many pesticides have gradually lost their effectiveness because pests have developed resistance- a significant decrease in sensitivity to a pesticide, which reduces the field performance of these pesticides.  Research into AgNPs (silver nano-patrticles) for agricultural enhancement has shown to be a viable alternative to environmentally harmful pesticides and fertilizers.

Did you know that AgNPs used in crops increases the health of the plants due to its ability to protect plants from diseases and improve plant health. It has been known to have strong inhibitory and bactericidal effects as well as a broad spectrum of antimicrobial activities. AgNPs have well-known recognition for their antioxidant, antibacterial, antifungal, anti-viral and anti-inflammatory properties. In the agricultural sector, it could be used for insect pest’s management through the formulations of nanomaterials-based pesticides and insecticide and enhancement of agricultural productivity. We make it our duty to stay on the cutting edge of any new advances in AgNPs application in agricultural improvement.
