We offer a wide range of soil conditioners, as well as liquid and foliar fertilisers. Many of our products have been approved for application within organic agriculture.
Besides the use of cereals for food and feed, the importance as a renewable energy resource for the production of biofuels is increasing.
The quality demands of cereals vary according to the destined end use, but a large proportion of these quality criteria can be positively influenced by judicious use of fertilisers. It is therefore important not only to optimise nitrogen supply but also to adjust the supply of potassium, magnesium and sulphur as well as that of trace elements. The quality of cereals is defined by the intended end use.
Vegetables play an important role in human nutrition. Thanks to their high content of valuable ingredients and their low fat con-tent, vegetables are quite simply healthy. Vegetables greatly contribute to providing humans with minerals. This is why the provision of an optimal supply nutrients to vegetable crops is of the utmost importance.
Differing from arable crops, harvest-time of vegetables is very often in the middle of their vegetative development. It is there-fore necessary to provide a the full supply of nutrients very early on.
The citrus fruits, comprising the species oranges, mandarins, grapefruits and lemons, are currently collectively the most important group in terms of production worldwide. Citrus fruit is grown mainly in tropical and subtropical regions of the world. Today, Brazil is the largest producer of oranges and Japan of mandarins. Spain, Italy and Mexico lead in the production of lemon and limes, while the USA produce the largest quantity of grapefruit.
Citrus fruits are rich in vitamins, especially vitamin C. Its mild acid and bitter taste is good for the digestion and blood circulation. Citrus fruits are either consumed fresh or processed. The citrus peel is rich in pectin which is used in the production of jellies, marmalades, sweets, jams and pharmaceutical preparations.
The oilseed rape crop is of enormous importance for many agricultural producers. Since rapeseed oil is a highly nutritious cooking oil, demand on the world market is rapidly increasing. In addition, large volumes are required for processing oil into biofuels as a renewable energy source, adding to the demand for the crop.
Oilseed rape has great cultural benefits. The introduction of a combinable broad-leaved crop in crop rotation instead of a cereal monoculture can increase yields of winter wheat by up to 10%. Furthermore, crop rotation with rapeseed reduces pest and disease pressure. Oilseed rape is a crop which is particularly suited to minimum tillage farming which represents savings to the grower in time, energy and costs.
