Supporting developing agri-sustainability

GROTECH Production Ltd is delighted to be playing a part in the development of greater agricultural sustainability.

As contract manufacturers and packers specialising in bespoke products for the agricultural sector, we have a long association with Unium Biosciences, providers of innovative solutions to maximise crop production.

They have recently announced a collaboration with leading crop protection solutions providers, Syngenta to introduce a pioneering biological seed treatment to farming in northwest Europe. This breakthrough treatment, NUELLO®iN, combines the power of bacterial strains with a prebiotic stimulant and the plant itself, to convert atmospheric nitrogen into improved yield and plant health. In so doing it lowers the environmental impact of farming.

The collaboration gives Syngenta exclusive access to NUELLO® iN and they become the exclusive commercial distributor across northwest Europe for Unium’s TIROS® biological seed treatment. These established product combinations in the UK will continue under the brand name NUELLO® iN.

Grotech has worked in partnership with Unium over the last few years, manufacturing the product to their liquid formulation and helping to select suitable packaging for packing the endophyte blend. Having made small batches of this product, we have shipped trial samples for seed treatment to farmers in multiple locations. We have also written the Safety Data Sheets (SDS) which have been accepted by Syngenta’s advisors.

Martin Usher, MD of Grotech Production Ltd said: “We are delighted to play a part in this important contribution to greater agricultural sustainability and strongly believe in the potential of this sort of biological solution.”

He added: “We are pleased to have the trust of both Unium and Syngenta for the launch of this product and look forward to supporting them both as the technology is developed further.”
