Our full-service lab includes nutrient and particle size analyzers to ensure each batch meets our quality standards.  Our chemists and manufacturing teams work closely together to monitor batches, improve processes, and deliver the best products.

As part of the De Sangosse Group, we are able to tap into global research and bring innovative products to market quickly.  Our product development team collaborates with third parties, universities, and international partners to prove product efficacy in a variety of crops under different growing conditions.

Our expert sales team is comprised of Agronomists and Plant Nutritionists with CCA, PCA, and QAL licenses. They work with growers and distributors to address the nutritional needs of crops and proactively prevent nutrient deficiencies. Custom nutrition programs are recommended depending on the stage of the growing cycle and the goals of the grower.
