Biolchim S.p.A. is leader in the production and commercialization of biostimulants and specialty fertilizers designed to optimize crop production and performance in every agronomic context. The importance of biostimulants is increasing very fast at the global level with forecasted double-digit growth for the next 5 years according to market reports. Biostimulants open up whole new opportunities for agriculture, as they address the issue of increasing crop yields with scarce natural resources. Biostimulants represent a valuable tool for handling abiotic stresses, which are a major cause of yield loss and are becoming more severe as climate change and land depletion progress.
Biolchim has strengthened its position on the market both through important acquisitions and internal growth over the last years. The acquisitions granted the Biolchim Group the control of the key raw materials and innovative technologies that are used for the production of biostimulants, and boosted the Group’s international growth. Biolchim is present today in more than 75 countries, has 7 subsidiaries and 4 representative offices and is continuously expanding. To transform innovation into actual solutions for farmers, Biolchim has launched WIN (Worldwide Innovation Network) an international network of collaborations aimed at shortening the time to market of new products and improving technology transfer. The network comprises a variety of partnerships with Universities, Research Centers, and test facilities that contribute to different phases of product development, from screening of raw materials to field testing.
Despite the positive growth perspectives, the biostimulant sector is also facing challenges. One of those comes from the regulatory side, where Europe is shaping a new harmonized framework for biostimulants that intends to secure a fair market while maintaining innovation in the industry. Another challenge is communication, needed by industry and stakeholders to introduce biostimulants into new markets and explain the advantages of integrating this technology in common agricultural practices. Biolchim is one of the co-founders of the European Biostimulants Industry Council (EBIC), which advocates a harmonized market for plant biostimulants through the creation of an appropriate regulation thus contributing to the development of the European biostimulant industry.
Through the combination of the experience acquired in over 40 years of activity, an innovative product portfolio, and an accurately planned development strategy, the Biolchim Group has become one of the major realities in the global specialty fertilizer and biostimulant industry committed to deliver solutions to maximize the performance of any crop, anywhere in the world.
