ABSTRACT

A Greek SME which is active in producing and trading seeds of cereals and legumes is looking for suppliers of commercial mycorrhizal inoculants for mainstream agriculture, suitable for cereals and pulses. The sought product will be used for seed treatment, to improve resistance and increase the overall crop yield. The company is looking for partners to establish licensing agreement.


FULL DESCRIPTION

The Greek SME is located in central Greece and has been active in the field of seed production since 1995. It specializes in contract agriculture, which enables the production and introduction in the market of certified seeds of cereals (durum, soft wheat and barley) and legumes (lentils and chickpeas). In addition, the company trades certified seeds of oats, maize, sorghum, livestock sprats (alfalfa, pea) and industrial plants (cotton).
The company has already established partnerships with industries in Greece and abroad, since it is highly innovation oriented and is continuously expanding its product range. To assess the quality and characteristics of its seeds, the company is conducting strip trials throughout the Greek territory. In this way, it is able to assess both quantitatively and qualitatively its varieties in different soil-climatic zones and in actual cultivation conditions before entering the propagation chain or direct marketing.
To increase the yield production of their crops and enhance the quality of their soil, without using chemical substances, the company is looking for suppliers of commercial mycorrhizal inoculants for mainstream agriculture, suitable for cereals and pulses. The product sought should be highly concentrated and suitable for organic farming, thus containing only naturally occurring fungi (no-GMOs). Furthermore, it should also be applicable to conventional farming, and thus compatible with other agrochemical inputs.
The required product will be used for seed treatment, to improve resistance and increase the overall crop yield. Substances used for seed treatment are usually limited in load factor, as seeds can only carry a limited amount of material without becoming too bulky to use. Thin film coating is typically preferred over thick seed encrusting. Effective seed treatment requires high application rate in terms of propagules per seed, which can only be achieved in a film coating with high product concentration.

The company is looking for partners specialized in developing solutions for seed treatment, using mycorrhizal inoculants. The company is looking to establish licensing agreement.


Partner expertise sought:

- Type of partner sought: The company is looking for mycorrhizal inoculants suitable for seed treatment (especially for row crops such as cereals and pulses) without the need of adhesive coating.
In case such solutions are not available in the specific format, the SME is open in testing other formulations suitable for seed treatment, such as granular or dry powder.
- Specific area of activity of the partner: The Greek SME is looking for European industrial partners who are specialized in developing solutions for seed treatment, using mycorrhizal inoculants.
The partnership sought is license agreement, so that the company can use the requested product for seed treatment.
