PlantResponse is a Spanish green-biotech company that develops novel natural products that confer resistance, increase yield and enhance plant responses to biotic and abiotic stress. This approach enables more sustainable crop production with minimal environmental impact, by reducing the use of chemicals and other agricultural inputs which create residues.

Aiming to bridge the gap between early research and the market and bring solutions efficiently to farmers, PlantResponse has focused on developing and commercializing highly innovative products by taking advantage of the know-how and techniques acquired through its experience in the agricultural domain.

Products and services

PlantResponse has launched its first-in-class elicitor after completion of the field/greenhouse tests for proving wide pathogen resistance and yield increase in garlic and pepper both in ecological and integrated management. A platform for systematic High Throughput Screening (HTS) to identify Elicitors has been developed by our scientists. Validation in target crops is carried out in real production conditions both in field and greenhouse trials to guarantee the success and yield performance.

Areas of interest for future collaborations

PlantResponse has wide experience in building bridges between academic researchers and industry. One of our mail goals is to bring exciting discoveries from the lab to the market.
