We are an innovative company that translates knowledge, experience and inventive insights into practical solutions for the agriculture and horticulture sectors. We have developed several products (biostimulants and fertilisers) that have been tested on various crops and production systems. The best variants (in terms of efficacy, applicability and user-friendliness) have been brought to market.
Since our establishment in 2010, we have been active in more than 30 crops and more than 20 countries, including the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Austria, Finland, France, Italy, Portugal, Poland, Spain and the Czech Republic. And we continue to grow. And agrosys GmbH is our dealer for the Swiss market.
We started out with a number of basic ingredients and products. New insights and concrete demands from the market have led us to expand and adapt these over the past few years. The facts speak for themselves: we now have ten products, each with its own specific application in various crops. The most important outcome: satisfied customers who grow stronger plants.
We are committed to developing products that support the plant to become and remain healthy, robust and vital. We do this by developing products with a number of unique properties, that can be used in different crops, in various production systems and with their own application methods.
Before we introduced the first products to the market in 2011, we first tested them extensively both internally and externally. Since 2010, we have had (external) tests carried out by WUR-Bleiswijk, Botany, Delphy (formerly DLV Plant-GreenQ) and Proeftuin Zwaagdijk, among others. These research results confirm, i.a. the effect of willow bark extract.
We can provide every grower with specific advice on the application of our products. To do this, we make use of our own extensive specialised knowledge of plant cultivation, as well as the expertise of our suppliers and our dealer network at home and abroad.
And we continue to invest in research. We now have over eight years of practical experience with various growers, different crops and specific growing conditions. All this knowledge is incorporated into our products to further improve their performance and applicability.

You’ve been used to reading detailed information about our products, their effect(s) and application(s) on our site.
This is now prohibited to us by the European Fertilising Products Regulation (FPR) (EU 2019/1009). This EU regulation is a response to a lack of clarity in the market when it comes to differences between so-called 'green products' (biostimulants, plant enhancers, products of natural origin) and pesticides (crop protection products, biocides, basic substances).
This law has now entered into force in the EU and will be further translated into national legislation for each EU member state and made effective.
According to this Regulation, a substance or product is a biostimulant if it stimulates the efficient use of nutrients. If it improves tolerance to abiotic stress (heat, drought, salinization), improves quality characteristics or improves availability of nutrients retained in the soil or rhizosphere.
Different legislation applies to crop protection products, which act against biotic factors (such as fungi, bacteria or harmful insects). These products must be approved as such by the Competent Authorities (different in each EU-member state), with all the necessary investments (financially and in terms of time), the opening of formula cases and the creation of files.
Of course we have to abide by the law. This means that, unfortunately, we cannot provide you with more detailed information anymore than we do in the adapted descriptions.

"We have been using SilicaPower weekly for 3 years now in the cultivation of Phalaenopsis. It's easy to administer and we see the effects."

The good advice I was given helped me to find the right combination of products. And with results.
