When we think about the future of agriculture, we already know that the role of the farmer is not going to be easy. On one hand, concerns are increasing about the occurrence of new crop pests and pathogens, resistance to traditional products, and the severe effects of abiotic stresses on plants due to climate change. On the other, the need to produce enough to feed the global population is more and more pressing in a world where health, peace and cooperation can't be taken for granted. Farmers need more and diverse solutions at their disposal to maintain outputs, quality and margins while keeping an eye on the health of the environment.
Biologicals are agricultural technologies that harness nature to protect and improve the health of food crops facing the stresses of today’s rapidly changing world. Biologicals offer farmers additional solutions to manage pests and diseases, address abiotic stress, and enhance nutrient use efficiency and soil health. They can also be used as a complement to traditional inputs. The three main types of biologicals are biocontrols, biostimulants and biofertilizers.
active molecules and ingredients contained in plants or algae, which have an enhancing effect on plant physiology or act as a control agent towards target pests.
the building blocks of proteins, they provide positive effects on plant physiology, either administered as free aminoacids or as protein hydrolysates.
organic molecules normally present in the rhizosphere and involved in plants’ vital functions, such as solubilization and uptake of nutrients. Among those, humic and fulvic acids play a major role.
naturally-occurring molecules used for signalling among organisms, to alter the behavior of a target pest without toxic effects.
compounds of mineral origin that can be used for controlling various categories of pests.
beneficial microorganisms whose role is to increase the availability of nutrients in soil, create symbiotic associations with plants and help tackle biotic stress agents.
macro-organisms, like insects, mites or nematodes, used as a biocontrol method based on the concept of a “natural enemy”.

Our biostimulants are designed, formulated and brought to market by means of our proprietary technology platform, GeaPower®.
GeaPower® provides a systematic approach for the development and production of biologicals by leveraging on a combination of technologies, processes, know-how, and trade-secret knowledge. Inside our proprietary platform, chemistry, formulation development, microbiology, plant science and “omic sciences” are integrated and used to transform useful active ingredients into effective solutions that meet the expectations and needs of the farmers.
