Agriculture is rapidly changing. Due to the growing world population, more extreme weather conditions and the increasing restrictions in the sector, we need to look for alternative ways to ensure sustainable crop nutrition for the future. In this respect, smarter use of land, of the available and applied nutrients by the crop, and an improved tolerance to stress conditions are important factors.
Where Nutrition meets Biostimulation™
This is why at Van Iperen we focus on products providing the plant with better Nutrient Use Efficiency (NUE), improved Abiotic Stress Tolerance and an overall greater Crop Quality. We believe that combining traditional mineral fertilizers with biostimulants is the future. Therefore, we focus on creating innovative solutions Where Nutrition meets Biostimulation™ for fertigation, foliar and precise soil application.
What are biostimulants?
According to Patrick du Jardin of the University of Liège in Belgium, "A plant biostimulant is any substance or microorganism applied to plants with the aim of enhancing nutrition efficiency, abiotic stress tolerance and/or crop quality traits, regardless of its nutrients content".
Our biostimulants products
We invest in R&D combing our nearly 100 years of experience in nutrition with the opportunities of biostimulants. Our FoliaStim® range with seaweed, our products with Iperen IPE® Technology and our Iperen WAKE-up Liquid are great examples of products combining nutrition and biostimulants.
Our products combining Nutrition and Biostimulation
FoliaStim® Ultimate Liquid
Van Iperen FoliaStim® Ultimate Liquid is a pure and highly concentrated liquid NPK fertilizer, formulated with 15% seaweed, mineral nutrients and EDTA chelates. Our product is a stable solution and is recommended during phenological stages with high stress levels and nutrition needs, such as intensive vegetative growth, and high production phases. The synergy between our seaweed extract and the balanced NPK and chelated micronutrients content in our formula provides adequate readily available nutrients at critical stages, improving the plant performance and providing the support needed to optimize yields. The presence of high quality seaweed supports the uptake and the transportation of nutrients and increases resistance against abiotic stress.
Van Iperen WAKE-up® Liquid is a unique foliar solution to support growers in enhancing crop performance. It is a one-of-a-kind solution, improving both Water Use Efficiency and Crop Quality. Van Iperen WAKE-up® Liquid has been developed by our R&D and Innovation department for fruit orchards and vegetables, but can also be used on various arable crops. WAKE-up® Liquid counteracts the effects of drought and heat by enhancing the water uptake and improving the water balance status of the plant. In addition, WAKE-up® Liquid stimulates and induces a higher final quality, in particular coloration and firmness. Many years of trial results have confirmed these positive effects, even in years with sufficient irrigation/rainfall. WAKE-up® Liquid has demonstrated to be a very valuable investment (ROI). WAKE-up® Liquid is the quality drink for your crop!
Stim Pure AA Liquid
Van Iperen Stim Pure AA Liquid is a pure and highly concentrated liquid seaweed based on Ascophyllum nodosum. Our product is a stable solution and is recommended at different phenological stages. Ascophyllum nodosum is continuously exposed to ebb and flood and survives in a high salinity environment. Our Canadian Ascophyllum nodosum passes its stress resistance properties on to the plant. It is known for it’s high consistency independent of the harvesting season and for it’s unique way of processing.
FoliaStim® Mn Zn Liquid
Van Iperen FoliaStim® Mn Zn Liquid is a pure and highly concentrated liquid Micronutrient fertilizer, formulated with 15% seaweed and EDTA chelates. Our product is a stable solution and is recommended as of early spring until fruit setting. The high level of Manganese and Zinc in our formula improves photosynthesis and growth of new heatlhy roots, vigurous shoots and flower buds. The presence of high quality seaweed supports the uptake and the transportation of nutrients and increases resistance against abiotic stress.
