Cybelion® is a 100 % natural extract derived from fungal cells that induces plant innate immunity, improves plant health and promotes growth.
Mode of action
Cybelion® is a fungal extract obtained by fermentation of raw materials such as soybean, cotton, sucrose, lactose, trace elements and vitamins, under sterile conditions.
Cybelion® improves plant health through different plant innate immunity pathways:
Intracellular Ca2+ release
Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) and ethylene production
Mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) phosphorylation
Plant Triggered Immunity (PTI) gene expression
Cybelion® has been specially designed for pepper, tomato, zucchini or watermelon, among other horticultural crops. It has also shown good results in cereals like barley and corn.

PRB1™ is a natural activator of immune responses that increases productivity and improves the overall state of the crop. Application of PRB1™ stimulates biological processes in the plant increasing plant vigor and improving quality parameters and crop yield. PRB1™ also minimizes and delays adverse effects related to biotic and abiotic stress.
Mode of action
PRB1™ is composed of molecules derived from chitin, named oligosaccharides. When these are recognized by receptors on plant cells membranes, a series of physiological changes are activated:
Plant cell wall strengthening, as a mechanical means for increased tolerance.
Activation of MAPK proteins, essential for regulating metabolic pathways involved in immune responses.
This hypersensitization of the immune system makes plants tolerant to potential adverse conditions (environmental stress or pathogen infection), and promotes better crop development.
PRB1™ is designed for both greenhouse and open field use, in a large variety of horticultural crops such as onions, garlic, tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini and strawberries.

PRB1™ is a natural, non-toxic product that leaves no residue and is completely biodegradable. By applying PRB1™ the use of conventional pesticides can be reduced, thus contributing to a healthier and more sustainable agriculture, and bringing increased profitability to the farmer.
