Teca® ZERO-ST3



Application via irrigation:

  • Apply 2.5-5.0 L/ha 4-5 days before a sharp drop or rise in temperature is expected
  • Apply 5 L/ha when temperatures are most adverse for the crop

Repeat every 4 days while adverse conditions last

Teca® ZERO-ST3



Teca® ZERO-ST3 is a powerful anti-stress agent that has been specially designed to prevent and mitigate damage to crops caused by abiotic stress from low temperatures, frost, extreme heat, a lack of water, or excessive salinity in the soil or irrigation water.

Teca® ZERO-ST3 owes its efficiency to a high-tech formula specifically designed to make crops more resistant to adverse conditions. The formula includes the following ingredients:
- Glycine betaine and L-proline, two of nature’s most powerful organic osmolytes, which work to counteract the effects of abiotic stress at the cellular level.
- D-gluco-hexose dimer, a natural substance present in plants that have been forced to adapt to the most extreme conditions on the planet, such as those of deserts or arctic steppes. This molecule also improves energy supply by stimulating the plant’s metabolism.
- Vitamin E, a fat-soluble vitamin that plays an integral role in protecting against oxidative stress and free radicals.
- Free L-amino acids and various natural plant extracts.

Teca® ZERO-ST3's action is twofold: it prevents damage when applied prior to abiotic stress and helps limit the impact of stress once it has occurred, enabling the crop to recover sufficiently.

The product’s high agronomic effectiveness is reflected in the loyalty of our customers and by numerous trials performed not only in our R&D laboratory but also under real-world field conditions.

A Teca® ZERO-ST3-treated crop will better withstand cold, heat, salinity, and drought.


It will make the crop better withstand the conditions of:

  • Cold / frost: When cold conditions are anticipated, the product will be applied in advance so that the crop is prepared for the low temperature conditions. Once the cold conditions have been given, the product will be applied to help the recovery of the crop. The flowering and fruit setting stages are generally the most sensitive to cold / frost, so it is recommended to apply Teca® ZERO-ST3 especially in these stages to protect the crop yield.
  • High temperatures: Idem vs previous.
  • Salinity: In this case, it is recommended to combine with Teca® SENSESAL®: Teca® ZERO-ST3 acts inside the plant, making the crop more resistant to salinity, while Teca® SENSESAL®  acts in the soil to eliminate excess salts and improve its structure.
  • Lack of water: When the farmer does not have all the water necessary for his cultivation (either because the hydrological year has been especially dry, because the reasoning of water is severe or for any other cause), the product will help the crop not to accuse so much said. lack of water.


  • Preventive action: for any abiotic stress, if applied previously, it prepares the crop and prevents the appearance of damage.
  • Damage containment: once the abiotic stress situation is generated, it minimizes the damage and helps the crop to recover
