Roquette, a global leader in the development and manufacture of plant-based ingredients, has developed a range of solutions for plant nutrition and protection.
Developed in collaboration with external partners and experts, these products have been refined for specific applications,conditions, and crops. They allow customers to substitute mineral and chemical fertilizers and biostimulants for natural alternatives that offer balanced, optimized NPK (nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium) in combination with organic acids, vitamins and other trace minerals.
Here we focus on fertilizers, illustrating performance via comparative case study data from trials at Iowa State University (ISU - Ames, Iowa, US).
The results demonstrate the ability of Roquette plant-based products to deliver comparable performance to that of synthetic fertilizers when used in tomato transplant and turfgrass cultivation, and at the same time highlight opportunities for further study of their complementary potential as biostimulants.
