Success in the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) competition

At the end of last year, our colleague Jaroslav Nisler from the Institute of Experimental Botany of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic succeeded, winning an honorable mention in the competition of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency the Next Gen Fertilizer Innovations Challenge.

Jaroslav Nisler was successful with concept of using derivatives of the plant growth hormone MTU, which helps create longer growth periods, protection from stress, larger plants, and potentially less nutrient loss per unit of fertilizer applied.
