Working in science I focus on real issues facing agriculture and horticulture. The challenge in agriculture and horticulture science research is to translate what we develop in the lab to solve real-world business problems, the team at Agristart helped us do that. My AgriStart mentor has continued to help us and facilitated with CSBP to start large scale trials toward commercialisation of our plasma technology.”

With our MALDIID root nodule identifier for farmers and institutes it is absolutely important to continue to translate our research or ideas into industry fundable projects. Thanks to the team at Agristart and Innovation Cluster we have officially started the MALDIID commercial service a couple of weeks ago and already have commercial clients. With MALDIID we can’t change the climate but it does provide the ability to accurately inform clients whether the best rhizobia strain is housed within the legume root nodule.
