IDENTXX receives federal subsidies for the development of new diagnosis solutions for crop protection
IDENTXX GmbH identifies the best means of successfully combating a particular weed using molecular diagnostic analysis. Now the Stuttgart-based company and its partners from research and industry are to receive subsidies from the German Federal Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Consumer Protection (BMELV). The aim of the project is to achieve a sustained reduction in the use of chemical crop protection agents.
Herbicide resistance is a spreading problem becoming more serious not only in "common" weeds, but also in additional species. Early detection and precise identification of target side resistances (TSR) helps to develop and implement suitable measures to prevent dispersal. Therefore, IDENTXX developed detection systems for ALS-resistance in several weed species.
Currently, IdentXX establishes a new, fast and secure detection system for the fungus Rhizoctonia solani on Hydrangea. Detection will be possible from dead or alive plant materials using PCR-based techniques.
In cooperation with Selecta Klemm GmbH & Co. KG, IDENTXX GmbH has developed a secure and fast system to detect pathogens that cause bacterial leaf spots on Poinsettia.
