LONDON (Thomson Financial) - Plant Impact PLC said its field trials on table grapes in Spain,
Jordan and Morocco saw their marketable yield go up 10-15 pct and shelf life improve 8 pct.
The company said the trials also resulted in the growers' revenues increasing by 20-25 pct and the time to harvest reducing by 10-12 days.
The grapes also became less susceptible to heat and drought stress, and the vines showed an overall improvement in health.
Plant Impact further said the global table grape market for its PiNT, CaT and Speedo technologies -- those it used in the trials -- has a current annual value worth of 230 mln usd per year.
