Point of Contact

ICL Innovation is seeking plant stimulants that promote increased yield, resilience and health and that are effective in real life conditions across soils, climates and over time.



ICL Specialty Fertilizers, a business unit of ICL Fertilizers, produces superior-quality, cost-effective specialty fertilizers that help growers achieve higher yields and better quality, in spite of scarce water and limited arable land.

Key success Criteria
  • Increase yield and improve plant quality
  • Improve abiotic stress resistance (against drought, salinity, and/or temperature extremes)
  • Be effective in actual field conditions
  • Be effective in a range of soils
  • Be viable economically
  • Solver has relevant field data
Possible Approaches

Include, but are not limited to:

  • Silicates for water soluble fertilizer blends in regular pH conditions
  • Synthetic molecules
  • Extracts
Approaches not of Interest
  • Known Phosphate Solubilizing Micro-organisms (PSM)
  • Known Nitrogen Fixing bacteria (NF)
  • Micro-organisms proven effective in labs only
  • Technologies limited to transgenic species
  • ICL Innovation is not interested in responses which offer approaches which are already commercialized and available on the market
