We are producing natural biofungicides to increase shelf life of fresh fruit and vegetabless

Pitch

According to reports presented by FAO, each year in the world, approximately 1.3 billion tons fresh fruit and vegetables are produced; however, approximately 25% of production is lost because of crop-destroyer fungi spoilage in the post-harvest process. To solve this fungi problem, harmful chemical fungicides are used to prevent fungi spoilage in both pre- and post-harvest periods. But these chemicals are very harmful to human health and nature. To solve this problem we launched our first product Mikoks. Mikoks contains natural plant based fungi killer microcapsules. They can be used in different stage for different fruits. In citrus they can be used in postharvest, although for grapes mikoks used in pre-harvest stage.
