For almost four decades our main objective has been to stay one step ahead, explore new paths, innovate and be different. For this reason, R&D&I are for us a commitment to the future. It is a promise to try to solve the main problems that affect the agri-food sector and therefore our society.
Thanks to a large annual investment in research and our professionals in the R&D department, at Fertinagro Biotech we can boast of already having almost 150 technological patents registered nationally and internationally, while we continue to develop essential projects for the adaptation of the farmer to the new regulatory frameworks.These projects focus on the development of new products and processes that minimize the use of economic resources used in agriculture, placing special emphasis on the development of efficient fertilisers that increase crop yields using renewable resources.
Our constant commitment to research has allowed us to be at the forefront of innovation, having the most complete and advanced agronomic and biotechnological laboratories in the sector, where the fertilisers of the future are developed.
The development of R&D testing is centralized at the C.I.B.A located in Utrillas, Teruel, where we have a physical-chemical analysis laboratory and a molecular biology laboratory where our latest acquisitions represent an important revolution in the field of biotechnology. In it we carry out metagenomic studies with which we are able to sequence the genome of the different microorganisms present in the soil and, therefore, see the characteristics of their microbiological composition.
We also have a plant physiology laboratory with NIRS technology for the analysis of raw materials and mineral fertilisers at the Teruel plant.
THE SUPPLY OF PREBIOTICS ACTIVATES THE POPULATIONS OF AZOTOBACTER, PSEUDOMONAS AND BACILLUS MICROORGANISMS, BOTH AT FOLIAR AND EDAPHIC LEVELS, AND INCREASES THEIR DIVERSITY.
ACTIVATION OF AZOTOBACTER ACHIEVES A ¬XATION AND ASSIMILATION EFFECT OF ATMOSPHERIC NITROGEN BOTH AT THE FOLIAR AND ROOT LEVELS
STIMULATION OF PSEUDOMONAS AND BACILLUS NATURALLY UNLOCKS AND SOLUBILIZES LARGE AMOUNTS OF PHOSPHORUS AND POTASSIUM PRESENT IN THE SOIL, TRANSFORMING THESE UNITS INTO ASSIMILABLE BY CULTIVATION
AZO-N® TECHNOLOGY IS ENRICHED WITH THE PHYTOALEXIN PRECURSOR THAT ENHANCES THE SYNTHESIS OF THIS MOLECULE BY PLANTS AND ACTS AS THE PLANT'S NATURAL DEFENSE AGAINST STRESS SITUATIONS, AT THE SAME TIME THAT THE EXUDATES GENERATED BY BACTERIAL ACTIVITY HAVE EFFECTS FUNGISTATIC AND NEMATOSTATIC
