Save Foods (NASDAQ: SVFD), an agri-food tech company specializing in ecocrop protection designed to reduce food waste and ensure food safety, has released the results of a third-party trial of its eco crop protection treatment. In the trial, SVFD treatments were used on 10 plants from two cannabis strains grown in a greenhouse; the treated plants showed approximately 75% to 90% lower inflorescences disease development compared to untreated plants. Contamination, which can be found at every stage of the cultivation process, presents health risks and can even be at the root of product recalls, resulting in companies losing millions of dollars in both profit loss and legal actions, the company observed. One of the fastest-growing industries globally, cannabis represents a significant new market for Save Foods. “The ability of Save Foods’ treatment to reduce disease development on cannabis is an exciting development with great potential, especially considering the limited availability of synthetic fungicides,” said Save Foods’ Israeli subsidiary CEO Dan Sztybel in the press release. “Currently, irradiation is widely used to minimize mold growth; however, it significantly increases the cost of production, is not permitted for organic producers, and any possible effects on the organoleptic properties of the product still need to be assessed. Our treatment to combat pathogens is a great alternative for producers and it ensures that consumer safety always remains a top priority without the potential of pesticide-related environmental or health risks.”
