Principal Product Lines

BAM-FX™

BAM-FX™ is an ionic micro-nutrient delivery system for food crops. BAM-FX™ was originally developed by John W. Kennedy, our Chief Science Officer and former director, to grow food crops in space vehicles designed for deep space human missions, but has been found to have potentially far reaching applications for agriculture on Earth. BAM-FX™ is a proprietary formulation of zinc and copper in a precise ratio used to treat plant mineral deficiencies by providing a delivery system to move mineral ions to the mineral deficient areas in plants. The benefits of BAM-FX™ are accomplished without the use of genetic modification (“GMO”) or traditional fertilizers, soil amendments or supplements. Instead, the BAM-FX™ formula transports highly bio-available, balanced, ionic minerals systemically into the biological system of a plant using a mineral complex carrier in an ionic form, which penetrates and distributes nutrients throughout the plant's cellular structure. BAM-FX™ delivers a diversity of nutrients, in measurably larger quantities than can be achieved through standard and traditional methods, and it is capable of substantially cutting costs with its versatile application possibilities and its enhancement of multiple products.

BAM-FX™ can be applied either by soaking seeds or direct application at time of planting and foliar treatment of the plant at later stages of development. Further, the benefits to crops are accomplished without the use of additive or subtractive genetic modification techniques and therefore, crops treated with BAM-FX™ are not categorized as GMOs. As major agricultural markets throughout the world are concerned about the long-term effects of genetically modified plants and crops that are ingested by humans, we believe that the fact that crops treated with BAM-FX™ are not categorized as GMOs creates a competitive market advantage and provides a wider potential customer base in these areas.

Noted in the “BAM-FX™ Trials” section below, BAM-FX™ treated plants have shown higher yields, increased plant resistance to harmful environmental factors and higher quality fruit and vegetables in tests with commercial farmers. Trials have shown that applications of BAM-FX™ on various crops reduces the need for multiple applications of other products, which we believe will save agriculture a considerable amount of time and money while creating faster growing, healthier, more robust plants. Additionally, we believe BAM-FX™ may provide significant value for farmers, growers, and world agriculture through:



· Observed increased plant stress tolerance;
· Faster time to maturity and harvest, with higher farm yields for food crops;
· Systemic delivery of targeted nutrients and minerals to crops to create more robust plants and more nutritious crops;
· Increased nutritional quality of grains and produce, including the potential to engineer nutrition into our food (e.g. bio-fortifying lettuce and grapes with zinc, potassium and calcium); and
· Reduced ecologic and other concerns associated with agricultural runoff pollution into water sources; as amounts of phosphates or nitrates are decreased.

Food crops offer the best source of nutrition for humans, since many supporting nutrients require organic carriers and are not normally absorbed by using vitamin and mineral supplements alone. As BAM-FX™ can be applied to any plant, we anticipate a substantial demand for BAM-FX™ to support improved crop health and nutrition.

BAM-FX™ Trials

In 2014, BAM-FX™ product development and commercialization activities spanned a wide range of studies, in terms of crop plants, test parameters, geographic region, and potential customer base. Early product testing used controlled conditions of indoor facilities to study BAM-FX™’s impact on seed germination, early seedling growth, and impact to young plants. Later testing progressed to small-scale outdoor test plots, conducted both internally and in the hands of commercial field application specialists, farm managers and candidate early adopter customers. In total, BAM-FX™ product testing to date has found that the product provides significant benefits to plant growth and yield, such as rooting activity, plant biomass, maturation time, BRIX (sugar content), and – most importantly – overall crop yield and improved nutrient access by the plant, as demonstrated by the ability to reduce fertilizer application.

High Value Crop: Detail of Wine Grape Trial

The field trial, analyses and harvest was conducted jointly by Intrinsyx and Guglielmo Winery staff.

For the 2014 first season trial, a total of 300 mature Carignan vines were selected with 150 vines in three separate adjacent rows marked for BAM-FX™ treatment and 150 marked in three separate adjacent rows as untreated controls. Additionally, 150 mature Zinfandel vines were selected with 75 marked for the BAM-FX™ treatment and 75 marked as control untreated vines. The vines were chosen because all vines were of similar age, health, size and spacing.

These wine grapes are normally dry farmed but due to the local drought conditions, one quarter of an acre foot of water was applied by sprinkler sets during July 2014. This was the only water manually applied all year. Additionally, micronized wettable sulfur was applied as a fungicide, following manufacturer recommendations for wine grapes.

The first foliar spray was applied to both test plots during June 2014 when grape bunches or clusters were just starting to form at a rate of 50 oz. of BAM-FX™ stock per acre at a concentration of 0.33 oz. BAM-FX™ stock per gallon of water. The second application was applied seven days later during July at a rate of 50 oz. of BAM-FX™ stock per acre at a concentration of 0.50 oz. BAM-FX™ stock per gallon of water. At this time the green grapes on the BAM-FX™ treated appeared slightly larger than the control and new growth was noticed with young leaves and tendrils being more pronounced on the BAM-FX™ treated vines.

The third and final foliar spray of BAM-FX™ was applied during late July when the grapes start to ripen and turn purple. The application rate was 50 oz. BAM-FX™ stock per acre at a concentration of 1 oz. BAM-FX™ stock per gallon of water.

During September 2014, bunches of grapes were randomly harvested from ten vines from both BAM-FX™ treated vines, and control vines, and taken to an onsite analytical lab for direct comparisons. Guglielmo personnel crushed and juiced the bunches to analyze the juice for sugar content or degrees Brix (one degree Brix is 1 gram of sucrose in 100 grams of solution and represents the strength of the solution as percentage by mass). Each gram of sucrose will turn into about a one half gram of alcohol when fermented. Both the Carignan and Zinfandel grapes tested from vines treated with BAM-FX™ had increased sugar content.

Row Crop: Corn Trials Summary

Corn is the largest crop in total acreage in the United States, with an estimated 88.9 million acres planted in 2015 reported by the United States Department of Agriculture in their release dated June 30, 2015. We believe the size of this market provides a significant opportunity for future revenue streams in addition to soybeans and wheat, which are the second and third largest row crops in the United States, by acreage.

During 2015, in a second year corn trial, BAM-FX™ was evaluated on two farms in Iowa, one on twenty acres and the second on fifteen acres. The protocols in both trials applied thirty-two ounces of BAM-FX™ per acre with a reduction of nitrogen based fertilizer: a 25% reduction of nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium on the twenty acre trial and a 25% reduction of nitrogen with no reduction in phosphorus and potassium on the fifteen acre trial. The control acreage followed normal grower fertilizer application.

The trial results showed a 4% improvement in bushels per acre on the twenty-acre trial and a 1% improvement on the fifteen-acre trial. In both trails, the root ball on BAM-FX™ treated corn showed increased size, improved nutrient uptake and strengthening of the plant’s anchor structure to withstand damage from wind, thereby reducing the grower’s crop loss.

We believe the use of BAM-FX™ provides growers a strong return on investment, in addition to improvement in crop yields, by reducing fertilizer which saves growers both fertilizer cost and reduction of fertilizer run off into waterways, thereby reducing the grower’s exposure to fines and penalties currently being imposed by numerous municipalities on growers for nitrogen and phosphorus intrusion into water sources that feed drinking water processing facilities. We expect that our focus on Mid-Western and Rocky Mountain region states, marketing these benefits to corn growers, distributors and grower co-operatives in 2016, will result in sustainable revenue streams as growers incorporate BAM-FX™ into their fertilizer operating practices during second quarter of 2016.

Specialty Crops: Kishu Mandarin Trial Summary

Kishu Mandarin, originated in China, has been gaining interest from growers in the United States. The Kishu is very profitable for growers due to its small size, superb flavor and ease to peel. The Company conducted a ten-month trial on forty Kishu trees for a grower in California during 2015. The trees selected for trial with BAM-FX™ had been producing poorly compared with other trees on the grower’s property. The objective of the trial was to determine if use of BAM-FX™ would improve the tree’s health, boost new leaf growth, fruit production and increase the quantity and size of the fruit.


All trees selected were three years old and in the same area of the grower’s property. The control consisted of ten trees and the trial consisted of forty trees. The grower’s watering protocols for both control and trial were followed. The forty trial trees were treated with three applications of BAM-FX™, as a root drench and a foliar spray application, with two applications prior to budding and flowering and a subsequent foliar application seven weeks later.

The results were significant. The BAM-FX™ treated trees produced an average fruit count approximately double compared with the control and average fruit size was approximately one third larger than the control. The fruit analysis results conducted and provided by an independent laboratory were as significant as the yield results. The BAM-FX™ treated trees produced fruit showing significant improvement in the nutritional quality of the fruit. Calcium content increased by 37%, copper by 62% and zinc by 15%.

The sodium or salt content of the fruit decreased by 24%, an important finding not only from a human nutritional standpoint but for the health of the Kishu tree. Given that the trees selected were producing poorly, it can be inferred from the results that the soil in which they were planted contained high levels of sodium and BAM-FX™ assisted in reducing the sodium uptake by the tree, improving its overall health.

DIRECTED SELECTION™

Directed Selection™ is a proprietary technological method designed to use the unique conditions of near-zero gravity in low earth orbit to create plants and animal cells that have beneficial traits that we believe would have value to society. This technology predicts that plant and animal stem cells exposed to prolonged microgravity in space can be endowed with new characteristics.

Life on Earth has always developed within the confines of gravity. About 50% of the energy expended by terrestrial-bound plants is dedicated to structural support in order to overcome gravity. By removing gravity from the equation, plant cells in a weightless environment have an excess of energy. This relatively benign environmental change causes the plant to engage its survival mechanisms, thereby enabling differential gene expression. The plant is able to adapt quickly to changing environments or disease causing organisms, stressors that we introduce artificially while the plant is in microgravity, thereby directing gene expression. This indicates that we can produce new varieties of plants, with required new attributes, faster than traditional methods.

All aspects of our Directed Selection™ technology must be conducted in a long-term microgravity environment, currently only available in space. We partnered with the University of Florida to conduct the initial experiments in order to validate the efficacy of this technology in space. Preliminary results showed that the Directed Selection™ technology was able to identify frost resistance capabilities in the Jatropha Curcas plant. This capability could allow cultivation in areas previously impossible.

The Company is using the Directed Selection™ platform technology to create more robust plant varieties adapted toward desirable characteristics. Our Directed Selection™ research aims to produce new varieties of proprietary, patentable stem cells for plants with desirable traits like the ability to better survive environmental challenges (i.e. temperature or climate change) or to resist disease. Adaptive changes in the plant will be accomplished without the need for additive or subtractive genetic engineering, thus eliminating public concerns about GMOs. The plant still uses the capabilities that are a natural part of its genetic potential, through altered gene expression that enables adaptation toward valuable traits.

A key part of our ongoing operations is the expansion of these patents to cover additional crops, animals and humans, and the specific methods and tools that are developed from our research and development. The Company possesses patent applications that contain claims covering biological processes in microgravity, including the growth of cellular plant and animal tissues in orbit, stem cell replication and related processes.
