Naturally interested.

It takes good soil to grow good crops. That’s why we have decided to only develop our products in conjunction with specialists and using established expertise. We work closely with university professors and scientists, who run neutral practical tests on our products and write studies on them. This cooperation gives us feedback on practical effective microorganisms uses and ongoing development of the products to improve their efficiency.

This ensures that we always receive the latest and the best expertise and thus we can remain the market leaders in terms of development and research in the field of Effective Microorganisms.
