Most crops around the world achieve only a fraction of their potential, so closing the yield gap between potential yield and average yield whilst reducing inputs and pollution is the key challenges for food security
Levity Crop Science develop pioneering agricultural products that improve crop production, reduce waste, increase yields and earn farmers money.
We are industry pioneers of bio-active crop enhancements, we drive new science and technology forward. Alongside agronomists and growers worldwide, we develop and deliver products that exceed current expectations in agriculture. Working intelligently with plants’ natural systems , our technologies enhance production without environmental damage.
We create alternative products that work harder than the competition in terms of both crop yield and waste reduction. Our scientists and partners are world leaders, working directly with you and sharing a united passion for improving crop production.
We are driven to improve the way food is grown, and its effect on the environment. Our products are scientifically proven to work and not mass produced just because they fit the ‘economies of scale’ model. We care about the difference our research is making.

When producing strawberries farmers must balance feeding the plant enough nitrogen without getting excessive vegetative growth. Because of this growers have to take care not to give plants too much...
Alternate year yield bearing whereby off years of small yields of large fruit are followed by on years of large yields of small fruit is a recurring problem for avocado growers. Here we discuss why it happens, and how to reduce the problem. Avocados grow three crops...
oron is a tricky nutrient to get right, as there is significant variation between crops in the way they transport and metabolise it. On avocado it is more complicated than on many crops due to its production of two types of sugar one of which...
oron is the most variable of all plant nutrients in terms of how it is transported and metabolised by different plant species - because of this response to Boron can be highly variable. Boric acid, the main form in which plants take up boron from...

At Levity we believe that science can help farmers produce better crops with lower inputs. We have four main areas of research expertise and these research programmes are helping to change the way farmers grow crops.
Levity’s science is helping to make fertiliser more effective. By understanding how plants pick up and metabolise fertiliser we are able to create products with much lower rates – better for farmers and for the environment.
The weather is the single biggest driver in crop yield and quality. Levity scientists use knowledge of how plants react to adverse growing conditions to create products that help them cope with stress – giving farmers new ways to maintain good yield and quality even in bad growing growing conditions.
Fruit and vegetable growers need to meet high standards of crop quality, Levity develop products that improve taste, shelf life and colour and that reduce physiological disorders. Framers using Levity products have better marketable yields with more production meeting the best grades .
Healthy plants need lower amounts of pesticides. Crop nutrition has a large impact on crop health and Levity’s research is helping to develop products that make plants more healthy, reducing the amount of disease.
We research and develop game changing technologies for a changing world.
