The future of fertiliser

 

sustainble crop production

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

Re-writing the rulebook on agriculture, Improving Yields With Sustainable Inputs

Levity Crop Science develop pioneering agricultural products that improve crop production, reduce waste, increase yields and earn farmers money.

Science makes the difference

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. 

 

Re-writing the rulebook

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.

 

Working until we get results

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.

Understanding Plant Physiology – The Key to improving Calcium levels in Blueberry

It is well known that good calcium levels in blueberry fruit can improve quality and shelf life, but results from calcium fertiliser can be erratic. Here David Marks of Levity Crop Science discusses why it is the crops physiology that limits calcium in fruit rather...

Four steps to better yields in tomato, pepper, aubergine and melon crops

Growing row crops like tomato, pepper and cucurbits is a difficult job, with yield strongly effected by growing conditions. Nutrition has the potential to increase yield, but get it wrong and yield and quality can be reduced. Here David Marks of Levity CropScience...

Nitrogen Use Efficiency in Maize – timing and form for better yield

Maize is a C4 crop, with a metabolism evolved to optimise growth in hot arid conditions. Understanding how this metabolism works can give us an insight into getting higher yields from our fertiliser inputs.  What is a C4 crop? To photosynthesise plants need to extract...
Tip Burn – Calcium Problem or Agronomy Problem?

Tip Burn – Calcium Problem or Agronomy Problem?

Tip burn is a serious problem for growers of leafy vegetables, with dead leaf tips caused by low calcium levels rendering crops unsaleable and reducing marketable yield. Though the problem areas are usually low in calcium, the cause of that low calcium can be due to...

Our Top Priorities; Focusing On The Key Issues In Crop Production

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.

Yield & Nutrient Use Efficiency

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. 

 

Stress

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. 

 

Improved Crop Quality & Reducing Physiological Disorders

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 . 

 

Reduced Disease Pressure

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.
