Phytodiagnostix will be a biotechnology company in the agribusiness field, developing crop protection products. Using genetic methods, the company intends to develop biological indicator plants for the early diagnosis of plant virus diseases affecting stone fuits (plums, peaches, nectarines, apricots). These new plants will allow detection of viral infection within a couple of weeks. Phyto-diagnostix will provide farmers with indicator plant varieties of stone fruits to be planted in the field, allowing a permanent in loco monitoring of crop health status.
