Plant Impact in anti-stress research deal:
The UK crop protection company, Plant Impact (Preston, Lancashire), has entered into a research partnership with the Lancaster Environment Centre (LEC) on anti-stress chemistry for crops. The company develops and manufactures products based on natural chemicals. "The research aims to fully understand how one of Plant Impact's crop protection products (Alethea) functions," the LEC says. "This knowledge will then be used to develop the company's next generation of products," it adds.
