Improving Profits for Growers

In the Acela Biotek treated area, fertilizer and water usage was reduced by 50%. While the olive trees in the untreated area perished due to sub-freezing temperatures, the olive trees treated with LALITHA 21® withstood the freeze and also achieved early production, noting the dynamic climate conditions in East Texas. Based on proven effectiveness, the Grower treated an additional 5,000 olive trees, over 20 acres, generating significant profits.  

Yield Increases up to 30%

Fertilizer Reduction up to 90%

Water Savings up to 70%


With just 8 weeks before our recently completed harvest, we water-ran LALITHA 21 and aerially sprayed LALITHA 21 BP on our field containing a mix of Nonpareil and Monterey almond varieties. Just a few weeks after the application, we started noticing the differences between the treated and the control ones. The treated trees were visually healthier with less infected fruits... We will start a full season run with LALITHA on larger almond lots in our orchards next season.
