Create R&D and innovative fertilization solutions for sustainable agriculture
All the formulas proposed are developed following research proving the effectiveness of the elements used, in particular specific microorganisms, on soils, plants and human health.
The premixes with Calkorium® and Calkonutrium® are patented and come from the brand’s research and development programs. The solutions resulting from the programs are tested on experimental farms, which allows FCA Fertilisants to obtain authorizations proving the effectiveness of the proposed innovations.
FCA Fertilisants is regularly asked to intervene in different countries in order to solve various production problems. R&D programs are set up to find specific solutions to the obstacles encountered by farmers and thus transform problems into innovations.
Rice fields oxygenation
Hanoi region in Vietnam
Following this visit, formulas based on anaerobic bacteria were specially designed to allow microorganisms to live with or without oxygen in the earth and thus allow the plant to feed
Stagnation in potato and carrot production
Dawn in France
This is how one of the brand’s flagship Calkonutrium® fertilization supplements was created, which has a “energizing” effect on the biological activity of the soil.
Corn water stress
Bothaville in South Africa
Fertilizer supplements with specific power on root development have therefore been created to allow the root to grow by capturing more water. This innovation now makes it possible to develop and secure the yields of plots in this region.
Leaching and insecticides on citrus groves
State of Florida in the United States
Calkonutrium® fertilizers with specific power for the sanitation and biological activity of soils have been developed in order to replace pathogens with microorganisms that guarantee plant health and reduce leaching.
State of Connecticut in the United States
The premixes used in our fertilizers and in our fertilization supplements have been developed to help microorganisms grow and stimulate themselves. This allows plants to absorb more elements, which reduces input residues and their pollution in water.
Brown rot on pods
Ivory Coast in Africa
Calkonutrium solutions allowing soils to naturally fight against pathogens in a tropical climate have been developed, thus generating optimal plant health.
