The Stockton Group and Yeda Research and Development Company sign an extension to their joint research agreement
Yeda Research and Development Company Ltd. is the commercial arm of the Weizmann Institute of Science, Rehovot, Israel. Yeda holds an exclusive agreement with the Weizmann Institute to commercialize the unique intellectual property developed by the scientists. The income generated serves to support further basic research and science education.
“The signing of this agreement represents our deep strategic relationship with the Weitzman Institute in general and with Prof. Assaf Aharoni’s Plant Sciences laboratory, in particular” said Guy Elitzur, CEO of Stockton Group. “Extending our research with the Weizmann Institute and collaborating ever more closely, leveraging both parties’ expertise, is an important step to address the requirements of modern crop protection.”
Though biopesticide sare still in their infancy, they are, nonetheless, important and Stockton's vision is to become a leader in the industry. During the last decade, Stockton has been focusing on the research and development of bio-products for the agriculture industry besides the already well-known products, like the Timorex Gold fungicide. Stockton explores the potential capabilities of plant extracts with the intention of integrating them into conventional spraying programs.
