Our Gahrda Chitis is based on a crustacean single source, high quality and exclusive Chitosan hydrochloride. This has been thoroughly tested against a wide range of fungi on large scale arable an horticultural crops. Gahrda Chitis is approved as basic substance* according Article 23 of EC1107/2009. Gahrda Chitis has demonstrated to be an effective preventive product fitting into an integrated crop management system. This results in minimizing chemistry in conventional farming and less cupper dependency in organic farming. The strong eliciting effect on plants stimulates the plant self defence by which pathogenic infections are prevented.
*(basic substances are not predominantly used as plant protection products but may be of value for plant protection by farmers).
Our research program conducts several basic substances besides our Gahrda Chitis and also evaluates other types of products as biostimulants. An extensive program throughout Europe is researching many crops as sugarbeet, cereal, grapevine, vegetables, potato, flowerbulb and fruit crops in experiments and field trials conducted by several research institutes.
