Plasma seed treatment

Project Leader: Dr Peter Gselman (Interkorn Ltd.)

Investigator: Dr Nina Recek (Jozef Stefan Institute)

The subject of the project is the development of innovative seed treatment technology using advanced plasma technology. Seeds will be disinfected by plasma in order to eliminate the transmitters of disease (fungus and bacteria) and mycotoxins (are damaging to health of people and animals). ECO substances will be applied to disinfected seeds in micro and nano layers, providing the seeds with excellent conditions for growth and development. The result of the project will have a positive impact on the environment (without the use of plant protection products, which is above the state-of-the-art solution), more efficient agricultural production and better health of people and animals.
