Protecting crops with light treatment
Boulder, Colorado-based startup IntraLight has completed development of its light treatment technology that automatically protects crops from pests and pathogens with daily light treatments. Using a proprietary spectrum, IntraLights severely damage pest and pathogen DNA, destroying their ability to grow and reproduce. The new crop protection technology replaces chemical pesticides, removing material and labor expenses while allowing growers to capture the increased value of organic produce.
IntraLight’s crop protection system maintains the efficacy of chemical pesticides at a lower cost, while allowing growers to market organic and residue-free produce. Light treatment technology is the only crop protection method able to protect crops for years with a single upfront expense.
IntraLight has opened pre-orders for their first offering, their #5 ring light, capable of treating 64 ft3 above each unit. For more about the technology visit intralight.co.
