Healthycrop.world ApS is a company specialized in developing economically important agricultural crops that are naturally resistant to fungal infections particularly to Fusarium and Aspergillus. The resistance entails that the pre-harvest use of fungicides is reduced, and crops are not contaminated, pre- or post-harvest, with fungal toxins that are hazardous to animals and humans. Fungal resistance is obtained through gene-editing leading to overexpression of a natural plant enzyme (Nepenthesin). Nepenthesin is a protease and degrades fungal enzymes upon infection, this ensures that the infecting fungus does not get the needed nutrient and therefore will starve.
