Coating products and bio-stimulants on SKAL input list for organic farming
Since April 10th are the organic bio stimulant agents from Ad Terram on the organic input list of Skal. They are now officially allowed to use in certified organic cultivation. An unprecedented step forward for the industry, says director Wim Meijles: "Finally organic growers have professional resources to grow sustainably with comparable yield and high product quality as regular producers." Over a year ago Ad Terram from Andijk launched these products to be used in the regular cultivation. Wim Meijles "They thus had a full, environmentally friendly and affordable alternative to chemical products. Now our coatings and bio-stimulants are allowed by Skal, organic farmers can also benefit from the great advantages, including more speed and better performance. "

‘For the earth’

Ad Terram, meaning 'for the earth' works only with organic materials from the strong believe that there is no future for chemicals in agriculture and horticulture. The results speak to the imagination. "Our products are of such high quality that it can compete successfully with the chemical bio-stimulants. They are now also available for organic farming, makes us especially proud, "said Meijles.

Crossing the border

As far as Meijles, this is not going to stop here. "Our goal is to get these resources are also recognized in other countries for organic cultivation. In Germany, Switzerland, South Africa, Poland and America, we are already well on the way. The more environmentally friendly the cultivation, the better it is. "As the Dutch requirements for admission to the list of organic inputs of SKAL are very strict, Ad Terram expect this breakthrough will have a positive impact on the assessment abroad.

‘TEAL’

This development means also big opportunities for TEAL in Enkhuizen, this joint venture between Ad Terram and Leba engineering in Enkhuizen which builds, among other equipment for the agro industry, state of the art coating equipment. TEAL uses only Ad Terram coatings which are applied with the most eco-friendly and accurate way on the seeds. Now even organic growers can make use of this ground breaking technology.
