Research on natural stimulants to increase utility value and yield properties of selected crops

Name: Research on natural stimulants to increase utility value and yield properties of selected crops
Researchers: Kovářová Marcela (head – principal researcher)
Project Type: C - other (Research and development projects of ministries, contracts and agreements on targeted research and cooperation, etc.)
Realization from: 2009
Realization to: 2012
Summary: In 2008, an important discovery of a new family of phytohormones derived from carotenoids was announced. These are heat non-resistant natural components active at very low concentrations, with a great potential use in agricultural production at minimum envionmental loads. The efficient component od all these chemicals, both natural and synthetic, is so called D-ring. The aim of this project is to investigate the possibilities of obtaining and stabilization of the active component, resulting in a product usable in agricultural production.
