Seipasa, subsidised by IVACE+i for the development of a biostimulant to overcome abiotic stress

July 4, 2024

Seipasa has received a grant of €67,187 from the Valencian Institute for Competitiveness and Innovation (IVACE+i) for the development of a new product. The main objective of the SEIPAMIDE research project is to obtain the synthetic route of a formulation used as a specific biostimulant to combat abiotic stress in crops of agronomic interest.

SEIPAMIDE is an initiative supported by IVACE+i through the 2022 programme for the Consolidation of the Business Value Chain.

As a result of the project and thanks to the support of IVACE+i, an optimal synthetic route has been developed for the development of an innovative agronomic biostimulant with proven efficacy in stimulating the growth of various horticultural crops of economic interest under conditions of water stress.

The project is eligible for co-financing by the European Union through the ERDF Operational Programme of the Valencian Community 2021-2027 and has involved the technology centres IDM - University of Valencia and the Technological Institute of Packaging, Transport and Logistics (ITENE).
