BOCA RATON, Fla.— (January 26, 2022), – Zero Gravity Solutions, Inc. (“ZGSI” or the “Company”) (Pink Sheets: ZGSI), an agricultural biotechnology company, announced that the International Journal of Biochemistry Research and Review has published a peer reviewed research paper outlining the mechanism by which the Company’s technology activates plants’ innate disease defenses. In this illustrative case study, the Company identified new plant biomarkers expressed when a plant is under fungal attack and demonstrated how our technology successfully triggers plants natural fungal defenses, a response known as priming. The findings validate the technology’s mode of action and pave the way for the Company to broaden its product suite with proprietary priming elicitors that enable plants to sustainably increase yield and protect against disease.
“Identifying the molecular mechanism of BAM priming and the specific biomarkers it causes to express is a scientific breakthrough for the Company. Our research validates our theory that a plant’s natural defenses are triggered by the Company’s priming technology”, stated Dr. Ravi Pottathil, Zero Gravity Solutions’ Chief Science Officer.
“We believe the next generation of sustainable agricultural solutions will come from priming applications. We intend to introduce novel elicitor formulations as part of our priming technology platform in the near future based upon the biomarkers we have identified.”
The Company expects that use of priming technologies will be the next category of agricultural product innovation to achieve green and sustainable agriculture practices. The Company’s technology platform, which has been validated through numerous third-party trials both domestically and internationally, is at the forefront of an expected increasing use of priming agents as potent tools to mitigate plant disease.
“The findings of our recent research, combined with the ongoing commercial success of our BAM-FX product, reinforces our position that our priming technology is a leading edge innovation that will continue to contribute strongly to the tools that a grower has available to naturally boost the biological potential of their crops,” said Timothy Peach, CEO/CFO of Zero Gravity Solutions, Inc.
