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.

Boron, The Underrated Micronutrient

Boron, The Underrated Micronutrient

Featured in Potato Review Magazine July/August 2021ew potato growers regularly use boron, yet there’s evidence that this often-overlooked micronutrient increases yield, dry-matter content and tuber size during the critical bulking period. Crop scientist and founder of Levity Crop Science, Dr David Marks, said boron deficiencies rarely result in visible symptoms so many...

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 resistance and disease resistance. However, the actual results of applying...

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

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

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...

Growing Almonds with less Nitrogen

With sky high nitrogen prices and rock bottom almond prices growers are facing a challenging season this year and are under pressure to maintain yields with lower inputs. Better understanding how the timing and form of Nitrogen dictates growth in almonds can help...

Elona and Spring Barley Crops 2021

What a difference a year makes, by this time last year the T1 fungicide on Spring Barley crops would have already been applied [10 to 14 days prior] in many cases and the debate was being had over whether to cut back on T2 fungicide spend or leave them out completely...

Nitrogen Form – Impacts on Crop Physiology

Crops in the most part have come through winter in better shape than 2020 and it is again time to consider how to manage crops to achieve optimum yields. In many cases nitrogen applications will have already been applied and/or a ring roll employed in an attempt 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. 

 

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.
