Farmers all around the world lose yields due to plant infections caused by plant pathogens. Plant pathogens are a serious threat to global food security.
As crop yields are already continuously decreasing and food security is further affected negatively by climate change, there is an urgent need for solutions to minimize crop losses.
CropFold provides an easy, on-site bioassay for farmers to detect plant pathogens.
The modular system can be modified to detect different pathogens globally!
CropFold aims to help farmers detect plant pathogens before visible signs of an infection
occur which allows precautionary actions.
This could prevent spreading of the disease and save rest of the yield!
