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.

Increase Pecan Yield and Quality – Nitrogen

Increase Pecan Yield and Quality Understanding Nitrogen is KeyGetting Pecan growth right means balancing the needs of the crop for Nitrogen to increase yield, with the propensity of the crop to too easily go vegetative. This is the reason for problems with alternate...

How to Reduce Bitter Pit in Apples

How to Reduce Bitter Pit in Apples Appyling Large Amounts of Calcium is not the answer. Whilst bitter pit is linked with localised low levels of calcium it is characterised as a physiological disorder, and not a calcium deficiency. There is a reason for this...

Why roots need to be nurtured in transplanted leafy crops

Transplant stress is a source of uneven establishment leading to variable size and quality and yield at harvest. Here we discuss how stress and nitrogen influence hormone production and make the problem worse, and what we can learn from it to produce better crops....

Strawberries – How growth partioning increases yield.

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 nitrogen as more growth can mean lower yield and quality.To understand...

Understanding Calcium | The Key to Cavity Spot Reduction

The Key to Cavity Spot Reduction Understanding CalciumAlthough the link between Cavity Spot infection and low calcium levels in carrots is well established, farmers often get little benefit from application of calcium fertilisers. In this article I will explore how...

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.
