Early detection of plant diseases caused by microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses and fungi is very high on the agenda of the food plant growers striving to implement integrated and sustainable farming practices. The earlier a plant disease is spotted on the crops and the causing agent(s) clearly identified the lesser the quantity of pesticides used. Therefore an overall lesser negative footprint on the local and global environment.

Progenus proposes PCR and Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) -based services:

  • Design and validation of in-vitro diagnostic tests.
  • Detection of the plant diseases and their agents.
