The company's main activity is the manufacture and distribution of micronutrients and trace elements for the agricultural arable, fruit and vegetable markets. The basis of the company’s philosophy is that plants, can all reach their potential in ideal growing conditions. But because we do not live in ideal climatic conditions, crop nutrition helps the plant overcome the stress of too hot, too cold, too wet or too dry growing conditions.
Deficiencies of any element, either not present in the soil, or in the plant tissue, can be corrected by the use of crop nutrients. A range of liquid, for foliar applications, granules, for soil applications, and powders for spray tank mixing, have been developed to enable the plant to thrive and bear the produce it has been grown for.
Initially to reactively treat all growing crops, produce, fruit etc. with the nutrients which soil, tissue or visual analysis identify to be in short supply. In addition, to help balance those nutrients, with other elements, that may well be in surplus. This approach reduces the stress levels in the plants and allows them to develop and fruit to their full potential.
Our second approach is to proactively provide nutrition to assist in the successful and profitable end marketing of the produce grown.
Potatoes with even sized tubers, good skin finish and sound internal qualities
Seed potatoes with sufficient stored nutrients to give a good start to her developing tubers
Carrots that are evenly sized, straight with good colour and skin finish
Fruit with good skin finish, longer shelf life and sound internal qualities
Vegetables that have sound internal qualities and grown without any ‘hollowing’ internal problems
Wheat for milling with protein levels required for bread and biscuit making
Barley with nitrogen levels acceptable for beer making
Those are a few examples of crop programmes advocated by our company. In addition, through developing strong cell walls both internally and externally, it has been shown that plants can be protected from certain diseases.
The benefits of good skin finish, sound and strong internal qualities, extended shelf life, are an obvious benefit when exporting fresh foodstuffs. So often do we hear of produce, soft, runny and damaged being delivered to export markets.
