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.

Boost to Ornamentals From Nitrogen Switch

Switching to a different form of applied nitrogen could increase grower profits, improve plant physiology and raise plants’ stress tolerance, according to new research. The alternative nitrogen – a chemically stabilised form of urea – would also optimise resource use...

Calcium deficiency – stress symptom?

Calcium is often used as a 'stress buster', but calcium is better used to fix stress symptoms rather than as a cure for stress. Here we discuss the relationship between stress and calcium in plants, and we can use this understanding to better treat both stress and...

Directing the traffic – How to improve tuber size in potatoes.

In both Europe and North America the season started with poor weather, and potatoes were planted much later than usual. Markets are unforgiving and growers will be still asked to produce the right size tuber for the market. This will be challenging, as potatoes grow...
Silicon – Removing its limitations

Silicon – Removing its limitations

Silicon has been demonstrated to have wide-ranging beneficial effects on many crops. A cursory glance at the literature shows how silicon can assist with growth, stress tolerance, insect pest...

Why stress makes avocados small, and how to fix it

Why stress makes avocados small, and how to fix it

Avocado crops, particularly Hass type varieties, can suffer from having small fruit. This is associated with stress which increases the proportion of small fruit on the tree. Here we explore why stress creates this problem and explore ways to improve fruit size and...

Using Boron to Increase Tomato and Pepper Size

Using Boron to Increase Tomato and Pepper Size

Boron is an important nutrient, but one that is tricky to get right owing to it behaving differently on each crop. Here we look at how boron works in tomato and pepper crops and explore how boron can improve fruit size in these crops. Boron is frequently described as...

Improving Colour Formation in Apples

Improving Colour Formation in Apples

As an apple crop gets closer to harvest it can be a frustrating time for farmers watching crops hit the right size but not form enough colour and sugars to be picked. Often early harvest is where a grower can get the best price in the market, and of course the longer...

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. 

 

Keeping it Real… Levity’s Products Are Rigorously Tested And Scientifically Proven, With Plant Physiology At The Core

We research and develop game changing technologies for a changing world.
