Molecular Camouflage- The End Game For Pests?
Exciting new companies like Apeel Sciences™ are changing the face of agriculture, and the affiliates of the Wild Farmlands Foundation are honored to be active participants in the testing and advancement of these innovations as they are perfected.
Our farmers' favorite innovation out of Apeel Sciences™ is Invisipeel™. Based on the simple idea that bacteria, fungi, and insects all identify food sources via recognition of specific molecules on produce surfaces, Invisipeel™ works by fortifying these surfaces with an ultra-thin layer of chemically-contrasting molecules, rendering these foods unrecognizable to pests.
