I'm interested in moving up a gear or two here but for this I would like your help. I'm interested in contacts in the horticultural and agricultural industries. I'm thinking of those to whom you have talked already (I've done the cold calling and it is not successful) and who are interested to give our definitely non-mainstream a chance to float on that mainstream - by proper trials of the sort that only mainstream institutions can undertake.
In my opinion we should play to our strengths in areas in which the mainstream is weak but desperate for success. Therefore I think that we are most likely to be heard in relation to slugs, boosting growth in low light, frost resistance, and stopping fruit from splitting in the maturation phase. Any other thoughts on leads in and strong suits?
