We are a young, innovative company that translates knowledge, experience and inventive ideas into practical solutions for the agriculture and horticulture sectors. We have developed several plant-enhancing fertilizers 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.
We were born in 2010 from a partnership with and the further development of our sister organisation in Switzerland at the time – PlantoSys GmbH. We have developed, tested and marketed various products together that have been proven to work.
PlantoSys is now active in more than 15 countries and over 20 crops. We are active in the following countries: the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Belgium, Germany, Austria, Finland, France, Italy, Portugal, Poland, Spain and the Czech Republic, and here too we are still growing.
We began with a few basic ingredients and products that we have expanded and adapted over the years, based on new insights and market demand. The facts speak for themselves: we now have ten products on the market, each with its own specific application in different crops. The most important result: satisfied customers who grow stronger plants.
Plant’s natural defences
We are committed to developing products that help the plant help itself: we strengthen the plant’s own natural defences. We do this by developing products with a number of unique properties that can be used in different crops, in different production systems and that have their own application methods.
Research and testing
Thorough internal testing was carried out before our first products were launched in 2008.
External testing was also carried out from 2010 onwards by companies such as WUR-Bleiswijk, Delphy (formerly DLV Plant-GreenQ) and Proeftuin Zwaagdijk and. These research results confirm, for example, the ability of salicylic acid to strengthen the plant’s natural defences. In addition, micro silver has been shown to reinforce the effect of the salicylic acid and to help the plant protect itself from bacteria. Micro copper has also been found to help enhance the plant’s natural defences.

Knowledge and experience
We can provide every grower with specific advice on the application of our products. To do this, we make use of our own general horticultural expertise (HTuS in the Netherlands) and additional specialisation in arboriculture, as well as the expertise of our suppliers and our dealer network (amongst others agrosys GmbH in Switserland, Takam Ltd. for the Russian market and Royal Brinkman worldwide).
Although our products have been available commercially since 2008, we continue to invest in research. We now have over eight years of practical experience with different growers, different crops and different growing conditions. All this knowledge is incorporated into our products to further improve their performance and applicability.
