BANGALORE: Lockheed Martin Award- 2012 has been conferred on to Bangalore-based BCIL Zed Habitat (Biodiversity Conservation Limited of India) for its innovation, the ‘Zed Sunzyme Foliar Spray’ that rapidly enhances plant health.

The award was given by the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) in association with the Department of Science and Technology to recognise innovation across several emerging sectors including clean technology, solar power, nano technology and biomedical engineering.

On adding the ‘Zed Sunzyme foliar spray’ (a liquid organic foliar spray), to the regular plant diet, it rapidly corrects the plant’s nutrient deficiencies and generates stronger and healthier plants. This unique innovation by the company, assists plants to maintain consistent and lasting growth, which in turn minimises chances of losing yield and quality during adverse conditions.

Research has shown that yield has improved by as much as 30 per cent. Zed Sunzyme foliar spray also helps in flower initiation and early fruiting, promotes growth as a bio-stimulator, helps in nitrogen assimilation and increases resistance against pests, among many other advantages.

Commenting on winning the coveted award, Chandrashekar Hariharan, chairman of BCIL ZED, said, “We believe that we need to find solutions to problems that are unique to our times. Innovation is the key. Sustainability is imperative to every aspect of human life and it is possible to find innovative ways of building sustainability into our everyday lives, with products and services that are profitable, too.”

He further added, “The company’s research team earlier looked for solutions that can help farmers overcome the twin challenge of cultivation water shortage and lower crop productivity.”

Chandrashekar also said, “We help grow food that is healthy for the consumer and at the same time, maintain the integrity of the

environment. The Zed Sunzyme foliar spray is a result of that and we hope to engineer more such solutions that are of immediate relevance.”
