Life ENVision Project to the Biotechnology students
Our R&D Manager Valentina Ciccolini recently had the pleasure to present our LIFE ENVision Project to the Biotechnology students of the University of Milan (Italy) during a dedicated lecture.
As you know, the European Union has rewarded FertiGlobal’s long-term vision aimed at mitigating the environmental footprint of agriculture while supporting higher yield productivity thanks to our worldwide patented bioactivating technology EnNuVi®.
This is why we have been invited to introduce our project to the students.
Connecting with the new generation of scientists and starting an open debate with them has been truly inspiring!
Raising awareness on the challenges of modern agriculture among young students is extremely important for our mission. That’s what #SowingForTheFuture of agriculture really means!
Have you ever heard of ‘Nutraceuticals’? This word is a combination of ‘nutrition’ and ‘pharmaceuticals’ and describes all foods providing proven health benefits when eaten/absorbed.
Grape is one of these foods. Its berries are a natural source of polyphenols, which are precious organic micronutrients with antioxidants and potential health benefits. Just like a small pharmacy right at our disposal for most of the year!
Well, in the labs of FertiGlobal’s tech hub in Larderello our R&D team has been carrying out a very interesting experiment.
After an in-depht testing phase, they have proven the ability of our biostimulant technology EnNuVi to increase the nutraceutical value of grape crops.
Thanks to the combination of EnNuVi with the standard fertilizing practice in the vineyard, the amount of polyphenols in grape berries gets 25% higher and the overall antioxidant power improves by more than 55%.
This is another important step for our LIFE ENVision Project. Stay tuned to learn more about this test all the other trials we are carrying out with the aim of changing the global agriculture sector for the better!
? These strawberry fields have been the best performing in Chile last year and they are ready to win the record again!
This is why we have joined this challenge, in line with our commitment to constant improvement.
