Indra

Improves stress tolerance.

Key Benefits

Protects plants from heat, drought, cold, salinity and UV

Promotes antioxidants

Improves flavour and colour

Improved maturity in high UV growing conditions

Reduces disease susceptibility

Technical Data:

Indra is a product that improves growth and quality of crops by helping them cope with stress caused by heat, cold, salinity, drought and high UV light. Stress causes crops to produce toxins (ROS) that damage cells and reduce quality.

Indra promotes the plant’s own antioxidant production and supplies the nutrients needed to make their manufacture possible. Indra can help protect crops from loss of quality and yield, improve colour, and reduce susceptibility to disease.

evity’s scientists understand how crops respond to stress; this is helping us find ways to help crops help themselves. Indra has been created to enable farmers to use high salt irrigation water without losing yields, and to help crops carry on growing when hit by stressful growing conditions. Our research shows that stimulating the plant’s ability to protect itself from toxins produced when stressed can lift yield and quality in all crops.

UV Light Stress

The whole world relies on plants to use energy from sunlight to make food, but the wrong balance of sunlight can damage crops. In the Southern hemisphere, the ozone layer is thinner and more UVB rays get through the atmosphere and onto crops. Indra can stimulate production of antioxidants to give growers better crops.

Salinity and Drought

In arid and semi-arid parts of the world, overuse of groundwater aquifers is leading to seawater in infiltration. Over time the level of salt in the water fed to crops in many parts of the world is increasing, and it is reducing the yield of the crops it used to. Levity’s research shows that by helping plants remove toxins that accumulate when they take in salty water, yield loss can be prevented. Indra helps farmers get higher yields with better quality.

Heat and Cold 

The climate is changing and weather patterns are becoming less predictable. More crops are losing yield due to periods of high or low temperatures. By priming crops to allow them to cope when the weather gets tough, Indra helps farmers to safeguard yields and quality.

Reducing disease susceptibility

Stress weakens plant cells, and increases the level and severity of disease. Indra reduces the impact of stress producing stronger crops that are better able to resist disease. Levity’s research is demonstrating that managing stress can significantly reduce incidence of many fungal diseases.

Indra Protects Crops From Stress

Indra improves growth and quality of crops when they are under sress such as: salinity, drought, heat and cold.

Independent research was conducted at Lancaster university (2012) to look at the effect of Indra on salinity stressed tomatoes. In this first experiment, Indra with Redox technology was tested against the same nutrients but without Redox. It found that Indra reversed the effect of salinity on stomatal conductance in tomato. The same nutrients without Indra’s Redox Chemistry had no effect.

The tomatoes plant stomatal conductance was measured, if stomatal conductance is low then the crop is trying to preserve its water reserves and has negative impacts on gaseous excanges needed photosynthesis.

Lancaster University (2012)
Indra Promoted Optimum Stomatal Conductance.

*MFN=Micro Nutrient Formulation – This is the same nutrients Indra but without Indra’s Redox Technology

Saline irrigation water significantly reduces photosynthesis in tomato plants. Applying the nutrients alone did not help the plant, but applying Indra (same nutrients plus Redox technology) allowed normal photosynthesis despite high salt levels.

Further research measured the tomato plants sodium concentration. In all three treatments, salt irrigation caused a significant rise in sodium concentration in tomato plants. This demostraits that Indra does not prevent salt uptake, it’s effects are due to increased ability of the plants to tolerate the salt.

Lancaster University (2012)
Indra’s effects are due to the increased ability of the plant to tolerate the salt.

The research also looked into yield effects of Indra, both on unstressed tomato plants and salt stressed tomato plants.

Indra allows crops to tolerate salinity. It maintains normal stomatal conductance and photosynthesis this results in not only maintaining yield where salinity is present but also increased yield under non saline irrigation.

Lancaster University (2012)
Indra’s maintains yield when the crop becomes salt stressed, and increases yield further in the absense of salt stress.

An indepependent trial was conducted in Tzaneen, South Africa (2018/19). This trial looked at the effect of Indra on salt stressed avocado.
