Farm to Fork Europe highlights how working together as an industry can drive a transition towards a more sustainable agriculture, using the answers that we already have in our hands to help ensure our future on this planet. 

“As a leader in the sector, we have no Plan B. In response to the climate challenges we are facing, we have a commitment to support all our stakeholders – growers, distributors, employees and society – to promote a more efficient and sustainable business model,” says Jorge Aguilar, Marketing Director, Tradecorp International.  

In a presentation entitled “The Green Economy, a great business and investment opportunity”, keynote speaker, Juan Verde, one of the most influential voices in promoting and implementing strategies and projects based on the sustainable economy model, sought to instil in companies, institutions, and governments the importance of innovation. His end goal is to impress upon the global community that, as a society, we can reduce our environmental impact while boosting economic and social benefits. Speaking about the value of investing in sustainable companies, Verde said: “The great majority of investment and private equity funds around the world finally understand that it makes perfect economic sense from a competitive and profit standpoint to invest in sustainable companies that understand sustainability as a comparative advantage”. “Climate change is not only real, is the greatest and most serious threat to the global economy transition”, he added.

Tradecorp’s Sustainability Promise 

As a company with sustainability at its core, Tradecorp takes a holistic approach, promoting internal initiatives aimed at mitigating its impact on the environment, while also investing in innovation to encourage the adoption of sustainable products externally. 

Aligned with its parent company, the Rovensa Group’s, sustainability commitments, including a Net Zero future, Tradecorp has reduced its use of water and energy, emissions, and waste across its plants. To fulfil the Net Zero plan, in 2020, Tradecorp significantly cut the use of polyethylene, reducing the global emissions of CO2 by 240.399 kgi. Tradecorp will continue to implement 100% renewable sources at its industrial sites, aligned with the science-based emissions reduction targets in line with a 1.5°C pathway. The company has also taken actions to create more sustainable product packaging by using recycled materials to better manage its waste. The reduction in cardboard consumption has saved approximately 162.000 boxes per yeari and has reduced hazardous waste by 41.130 kg per year.  

Both Tradecorp and Rovensa Group are aligned with the UN SDGs and the European Commission’s Farm to Fork Strategy. To address Zero Hunger (SDG 2), Tradecorp boosts sustainable food production systems by supporting agricultural practices that support growers to reach crops maximum potential under extreme weather conditions. One example of this is the company’s use of sustainable technologies with smart seeds treated with its biostimulants and enhanced efficiency fertilisers in more than 466.000 ha, increasing the output by up to 10%. Due to this yield increase and aligned with SDG 13 (Climate Action) to integrate climate change measures into company strategy and planning, Tradecorp has saved 1.8 megatons of CO2 eq in the last year. As part of the Farm to Fork strategy, by 2030, Tradecorp will firmly contribute to help growers to reduce the use of fertilisers by 20% and reduce at least 50% of nutrient losses to ensure that there is no deterioration in soil fertility. 

“As a result of Tradecorp’s focus to support sustainable agriculture through innovative solutions in biostimulation and sustainable crop nutrition, over the last four years, our sales of registered organic products have doubled, while circular economy products have increased by 83%”, explains Jorge Aguilar. “At Tradecorp, we are determined to be part of the solution for the world’s present and future challenges, and we see quality, efficient, biological products as a clear path forward to tackle some of these issues. As such, we have increased our portfolio of products related to the circular economy by 35% over four years.”

Farm to Fork Europe 2022 helps to bring to light the key concerns of the agricultural industry and promote changes that will bring about a more sustainable business model. In line with Tradecorp’s recently launched corporate campaign, the conference highlights how working together as an industry can drive a transition towards a more sustainable agriculture, using the answers that we already have in our hands to help assure our future on this planet.

Recently, Tradecorp R&D new study1 published in Plants MDPI journal shows the mode of action of Phylgreen and Delfan Plus at a molecular and genomic scale against heat stress. The study was conducted by Tradecorp International, the University of Milan and Italian agricultural research Centre Agricola 2000 during 2018 and 2019.

The effect of Phylgreen and Delfan Plus applied as preventive treatments to plants exposed to short-term heat stress was analysed in this study. The main conclusions of the research were that, at physiological level, both biostimulants increased antioxidant capacity of plants and were able to reduce the oxidative damage generated by heat shock in leaves and cell membranes, thus preventing oxidative stress and damage on cellular structures. Furthermore, transcriptomic analyses showed a strong influence in the regulation of the plant genetic responses, effectively inducing the activation of specific heat stress-associated genes belonging to different families of heat shock proteins (HPS), antioxidant systems, and reactive oxygen species (ROS) scavengers.

These results are key to understand the mode of action of biostimulants against heat stress by activating antioxidant and heat repair systems and represent a starting point for further studies focusing on agricultural crops.

Phylgreen and Delfan Plus are Tradecorp’s benchmark biostimulant products particularly well known as references to enhance crop tolerance to abiotic stresses, improving crop performance even in the suboptimal conditions, thus increasing crop yield and quality traits. The right timing application and approach is crucial, stated in Tradecorp’s Biostimulation 360° campaign, as dealing with different types of abiotic stresses and requires specific solutions to match the biostimulation needs of the plant, from sowing to harvest and from roots to fruits.

On this matter, Associate Professor, Prof. Antonio Ferrante and Assistant Professor, Dr. Giacomo Cocetta, from University of Milan, explained in an previous interview that “the timing of biostimulant application is very important, since the efficacy of the products is related to the activation of specific pathways […]. Earlier (biostimulant) applications can lead to a lack of response when the stress occurs, given that plants can degrade the bioactive molecules. Conversely, applications that come too late can lead to low responses, as the stress can damage the crop when inducing the physiological and biological responses”.

In fact, Tradecorp previous studies with drought stress2, in a collaboration with Queen’s University of Belfast, demonstrated a biostimulant-mediated drought tolerance, requiring different moments of application for successful stress mitigation.

Tradecorp was recently honored to receive the award for “Best Biofertilizer Product” for Phós’UP. Biotool resulted finalist in the category “Innovative Research Project of the Year”, and Biimore was finalist in the category “Best Biostimulant Product Award”.

These awards recognize and showcase the achievements of innovators in the biocontrol industry, acknowledging outstanding achievements in the field of biopesticides. The event took place in Birmingham, United Kingdom, during 23rd and 24th of May with Oro Agri as Gold Sponsor. The initiative was an important connecting centre for the biocontrol industry, covering solutions such as Biopesticides, Biostimulants, Biofertilizers, Biocides and Bioremediation.

Phós’UP

Phós’UP is a high-tech and sustainable solution to phosphorous nutrition, an essential nutrient in plant growth. Among the numerous agronomical assays conducted throughout Brazil in the last couple of  years using  Phós’UP in soybeans, Tradecorp’s new biofertilizer is a viable solution for increased phosphorous nutrition allied to sustainability, since our product is renewable and produced from a sustainable fermentation process. The product contains the live bacterium Pseudomonas fluorescens, able to solubilize the phosphate adsorbed in the soil and thus increase the availability of this element to the plant, promoting increased crop growth with lower P applications.  This co-inoculation strategy can be readily applied in several legume and non-legume crops. Such an effect is extremely significant in terms of reducing dependency on conventional fertilizers given the current geopolitical scenario brought on by the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic and Russias’s war efforts in Ukraine.

Tradecorp, committed with sustainable agriculture

With Phós’UP, Tradecorp sediments its reputation as a reference partner for farmers, bringing new products that promote the highest producing crops coupled to environmental and economic sustainability. We are strongly committed to having a positive impact on agriculture, which is why we align our objectives to meet the SDG and the European Farm to Fork strategy goals: reducing pesticides, nutrition losses and antimicrobials, and boosting organic farming.

This is great recognition for how Tradecorp is innovating in the field of biostimulants, redefining the business model of the industry and promoting sustainable agricultural production, because we firmly believe that the answers lie in our hands.

Tradecorp, a global company specialized in biostimulation and sustainable crop nutrition, launches The answers lie in our hands, a corporate campaign aimed  to face global challenges, to transform food production through a sustainable improvement of agriculture by collaborating to eradicate hunger, achieve food security and improve nutrition worldwide. Product innovation, collaboration and digitalization are central to Tradecorp’s strategy to enable a balanced and sustainable agriculture.

“At Tradecorp, we are determined to be part of the solution for the world’s present and future challenges. Equitably feeding the growing population, protecting the people’s health and preserving the environment is a shared priority that must be addressed collectively and must create value for all stakeholders”, explains José Alfredo García, Chief Operating Officer, Bionutrition at Rovensa.

Today’s world is facing a rapidly changing climate, which is resulting in a gradual increase in the average temperature on Earth. This drastically affects natural systems, causing a loss of biodiversity and a degradation of ecosystems. In addition to this, United Nations data shows that we are facing a paradox of an aging global population while at the same time reporting the highest volume of younger people in history. This sociological change has a direct impact on how goods are produced and on the current business landscape. Agriculture also faces its own challenges as an industry. Not only does it consume 70% of the world’s water (Foundation Aquae), but the growing global population will rely on it for sustenance. According to the UN, by 2050 an anticipated 9 billion people will be living on Earth, increasing to 11 billion by the end of the century.

Tradecorp has decided to tackle this issue head on and take its innovation strategy one step further by launching this campaign. The answers lie in our hands, is set to redefine the business model of the industry and promote sustainable agricultural production. The company’s mission to equitably feed a growing population, protect people’s health and preserve the environment, while becoming the best partner for leading growers and creating value for all stakeholders is the foundation on which this campaign was built.

To achieve this ambitious objective, we have developed a high-quality and efficient portfolio of biostimulants and biofertilizers that enable plant growth and care, from improving the crop’s ability to use nutrients to improving tolerance to abiotic stress. The goal is to reduce the use of pesticides, minimize nutritional losses and antimicrobials, and promote organic farming practices. In short, offering sustainable and efficient solutions for biostimulation and sustainable crop nutrition in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the European Commission’s “Farm to Fork” strategy so that agriculture can withstand the world’s present and future challenges.

“We chose the slogan ‘The answers lie in our hands’ because at Tradecorp we believe that it is up to us to take an active role in solving the challenges that we are confronted as a global population, but also as an industry. To do this, we aim to promote a more efficient and sustainable business model,” says José Alfredo García, Chief Operating Officer, Bionutrition at Rovensa. “The industry, farmers, suppliers and all stakeholders in the agricultural sector need to work together to realize this transition towards a more sustainable agriculture and take care of the planet where we live.”

Tradecorp’s Sustainability Promise

As a company with sustainability at its core, Tradecorp promotes internal actions aimed at reducing its impact on the environment, including reducing its use of water and energy,  emissions, and waste across its plants.

Aligned with Rovensa Group’s commitment to contribute to a net zero future, Tradecorp significantly reduced the use of polyethylene, cutting its global emissions of CO2 by 240,399 kg in 2020i.

In terms of waste management, another key component of Tradecorp’s sustainability commitment, the company has taken actions to create more sustainable product packaging by using recycled materials. One of Tradecorp’s plants in Sanchidrián, Spain, invested in a new machine that was able to directly label the product and change its packaging at the same time. With this investment,  the cardboard consumption in 1 kg bags decreased by 64% and in 5 kg bags, 27%, saving approximately 162,000 boxes per yeari.

While Tradecorp has taken initiatives to reduce its environmental impact from a manufacturing perspective, the company also invests in innovation projects that help farmers to increase food production quality, boost yields and reduce economic losses caused by different types of abiotic stresses. In an ongoing project supported by the EU Eurostars program, Tradecorp partnered with Landlab, a research center specialized in nutrition, biostimulation and plant protection, to create Biotool, a tool that maximizes water efficiency in plants treated with biostimulants by enabling the real-time measurement, calculation and evaluation of plant water management.

With this campaign, Tradecorp affirms its commitment to the environment and challenges the agricultural industry faces. This way we continue to support the development of sustainable agriculture for the future.

Global R&D and Chemical Development departments received the visit of the Technical Auditor of CDTI and the consultants for the follow-up and justification of the activities of the 2nd milestone of BIOTOOL. 

 

BIOTOOL is an innovative research project developed by Tradecorp International and Italian research centre Landlab, supported by Eurostars programme. The BIOTOOL platform is a tool design to the effect of biostimulants on plants and improve crop yields through efficient water use, by measuring, calculating, and evaluating in real-time and under experimental conditions, the status of plants in suboptimal conditions of water application.

In this occasion, the CDTI auditor was able to see Tradecorp’s facilities (laboratories, scale-up and industrial) to review the physical-chemical status of the biostimulant prototypes develop in this project, which were validated with the BIOTOOL platform in greenhouse conditions. Additionally, it was reviewed the main results of Tradecorp’s activities at the UPM Greenhouse, mainly for the Primactive effect; and the results obtained directly from the BIOTOOL platform in Landlab’s facilities. So far, the preliminary results evidence that the same prototypes which performed well in the BIOTOOL platform follow similar trends for the results obtained in our Greenhouse. Next steps include to evaluate the performance of the new range of BIOTOOL biostimulants with Curactive effect. 

Currently, BIOTOOL biostimulant prototypes are being tested in field conditions in Brazil, and will soon start in several locations in Spain. The crops selected to study plant behaviour under drought or water limitant conditions are Maize, Beans and Table Grapes. 

Last, but not least, we are happy to announce that the BIOTOOL project is the finalist to the nomination of “Innovative Research Project of The Year” for the World BioProtection Awards 2022, a British non-profit organisation that encourages collaboration between the Agri-Tech industry and academia sectors. The ceremony will take place in a few days in Birmingham, UK. Let’s have the best wishes!”

Tradecorp, experts in biostimulation and sustainable crop nutrition, has added Transformer to its portfolio of new-generation products, in response to the current need for sustainable water management. This revolutionary product boosts soil responsiveness in all types of crops. 

According to Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)*, Farm to Fork** strategy and Common Agricultural Policy***, farmers are called upon to use water in a safe, sustainable way to protect water as an essential natural resource. In line with Tradecorp’s commitment to its growers, this new addition marks a turning point in the industry, offering farmers a readily biodegradable solution that manages water efficiency to transform soil crops.  

Transformer aims to be an effective water optimizer that improves hydraulic properties such as water infiltration, distribution and drainage. Its exclusive formulation reduces water surface

 tension and waterlogging in compacted areas, as well as enhancing conductivity and water retention. 

When applied to soil, it facilitates uniform spreading and distribution through micro pore spaces, enhancing soil aeration, thus enabling water to spread over a larger area, displacing more CO2 and increasing h2O levels, which are essential for microbes and roots.  

Transformer locks in soil moisture, functions as a soil conditioner and wetting agent, facilitates nutrient uptake and helps to improve the nutritional

 balance of crops with a subsequent increase in final yield. 

 

Water efficiency and soil responsiveness  

The reduction in soil compaction increases aeration and leads to explosive feeder root growth. The increase in root surface area optimizes the uptake of water and nutrients from the soil and improves plants’ ability to withstand temperature and moisture-related stress.  

The Transformer effect on soil responsiveness helps crops to enhance root microbiota, develop healthy, strong roots which increases nutritional intake, and provides an excellent nutritional balance.  

As a result, Transformer facilitates wise, efficient use of water, and reduces hydric and osmotic plant stress. This, in turn, brings major increases in crop yield and quality. 

Transformer is recommended for all crops, and can be applied through drip, microsprinkler and overhead irrigation systems, or directly onto the soil before or after planting.

Tradecorp launches The Power of Flowering Lies In Our Hands an awareness campaign to become the best partner for leading growers to produce fruit, vegetables, cereals and other agricultural produce for the food industry, retailers and consumers under quality, quantity, and sustainability criteria.

The Power Of Flowering Lies in Our Hands is an answer to act sustainably by using the right biostimulants to make this season flower.  

Flowering is a decisive turning point for future harvests and is a key phenological stage that defines plants’ reproductive growth. In this sense, it is influenced by different factors, such as light, water, temperature, and nutrients, and is also conditioned by global change drivers, such as climate stress, drought and elevated atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations (CO2)*  

Since weather conditions are predictable but not alterable, Tradecorp’s products enhance the flowering stage, empower fertility, avoid climate stress, and improve fruit setting:  

Florastart, a powerful biostimulant specifically designed to enhance the flowering stage, promote pollen production and fertility, as well as to improve fruit setting. 

Its unique formulation biostimulates crops with L-α Free Amino Acids, providing Phosphorus (P) and Potassium (K) which boost plant energy and encourage the plant to move to the next growth stage. High Boron (B) and Molybdenum (Mo) are the two components that help constantly by promoting vigorous flowering and pollen fertility, while the synergy between P, K, and Mo contributes to overcome the difficulties associated with delaye flowering due to an excess of Nitrogen in the crop. It is suitable for use in most crops, such as citrus, tomatoes, melon, watermelon, and nut trees. It is also recommended for foliar application and is suitable for fertigation. 

Florastart’s proven results show how citrus yields improve from 9-15%, enhancing flower set, fruit weight and size and reducing fruit fall. Trials have also shown yield increases and flower set in melon of 34% and yield increases in raspberries of 14%. 

Phylgreen Mira is a powerful fruit-set-enhancing seaweed biostimulant derived from pure cold-extracted fresh.

Ascophyllum nodosum. During the gentle extraction process, all the active ingredients are protected from denaturation to maximise product efficacy.

Ascophyllum’s natural flowering and fruit-set-enhancing properties are enhanced by combining Magnesium, Boron and Molybdenum which are essential nutrients for these stages. It is formulated with Primactive effect technology that helps combat spring climate stresses such as late frost, humidity and unseasonal heat, which are becoming more and more frequent. It also increases flower number potential and reduces abortion risk, securing fruit set by reducing millerandage.  

Results show that a 9% improvement in the flowering process of grapes, fruit abortion is reduced by the same percentage and fruit set grows by 5%. Some trials have revealed that apples experience an improvement of 14% in fruit set with an 8% yield increase while maintaining fruit size. Phylgreen Mira raises the marketable yield of tomatoes by an average of 9%.  

These two products help to achieve the desired results by boosting fertility, enhancing the quality and quantity of the yield, as well as bringing homogeneous flowering and setting, while helping to fight possible episodes of climate stress that occur during springtime.
