Biosolutions Hub

Ensuring optimum plant health is a priority for any grower looking to achieve the maximum yield potential and efficiency from their crop. Interest in plant health is fast gaining momentum, as growers and agronomists look for alternative products to enhance existing crop protection methods.

Part of this interest has been in the biosolutions and biostimulant market, which offers something innovative and different. This is because biosolutions foster plant health throughout the life-cycle, acting as a complementary addition to crop nutrition and crop protection products.

Biosolutions promote a resourceful and efficient approach to agriculture, contributing considerably to the sustainable agriculture agenda. Therefore, Arysta LifeScience is delighted to be sponsoring the Biosolutions Hub at CropTec 2018. Having an established biosolutions portfolio, Arysta LifeScience is proud to bring these exciting products to the UK market.
