IP protection



Please provide a short description of the state-of-the-art and/or current trends in the field? How does the result fit into it?
In the EC mushrooms produced in high amounts, the plants are grown in large quantities, usually on soil mineral wool. It has ideal conditions for fungi. In biological farming of mushroom cultivations there is not any useful pesticide (except for anorganic copper solutions) on the market, therefore an effective agent against Pseudomonas spp. caused rot of mushroom is needed.




What is the problem/need/knowledge gap that the research result is responding to?  How was it addressed before?
This invention helps for organic farmers that avoid the Pseudomonas rot by our biocontrol preparation. The benefit of the technology is that it can easily be applied by being mixed into irrigation water and/or the growing medium. The emergence and rapid spread of rot can be significantly reduced with the use of a biocontrol substance, thus diminishing the extent of the loss.




What is the potential for further research?
Currently it is at the end, until the pathogens will not delude this protection.




What is the proposed method of IPR-protection? (patent, license, trademark etc.)
The Hungarian Application Number is P1100496. We are planning to file an international patent application and/or regional patent applications.




What are the steps that need to be taken in order to secure the IPR-protection? What is the cost of IPR-protection?
The introduction in bigger countries  is about 90 000 €




What is you overall assessment of the scientific maturity of the research result?
The development of the technology has been completed. The next step will be the product development phase.

The invention is not currently being utilized. The university is seeking to license the patent application to spin-offs, product developers and distributors.
