Tradecorp has renewed its cooperation agreement for yet another year with the School of Agricultural, Food and Biosystem Engineering’s (ETSIAAB) Crop Production and Phytotechnology Department, at the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid.

  • This is the 5th consecutive year that the company has been carrying out trials in the field station’s glass greenhouse and adjacent laboratories.
  • Thanks to the signing of this three-party agreement between Tradecorp International, the Fundación Premio Arce foundation and the lecturer Rubén Moratiel, who is a researcher at CEIGRAM (UPM R&D Centre), Tradecorp has access to some of the UPM’s facilities and the necessary resources to carry out a variety of agricultural trials related to the main lines of research the Tradecorp R&D team is currently working on at global level.

The greenhouse has become a very useful tool for testing some of the company’s lines of research. “This space is fundamental for our work,” explains Camila Levy, Tradecorp’s Global R&D Manager. “It facilitates preliminary live testing of new products and prototypes, which helps us to better understand modes of action, how products work, their dosage and the best phenological phase to apply them. This saves considerable time and resources when designing future field trials,” she added.

In addition to working with prototypes and new raw materials, these facilities are used to carry out comparative studies of new formulas for products that are already on the market, in order to verify their agronomic performance, as well as to study new aspects and different approaches to flagship products in Tradecorp’s portfolio. An example of this are the studies carried out with Phylgreen. Tradecorp has performed numerous agronomic and scientific tests that demonstrate the positive effect of Phylgreen in combatting drought and high temperatures. At the moment, new studies are being carried out in the UPM greenhouse on its effect on other types of stress such as hypoxia and root asphyxia.

Likewise, the partnership between Tradecorp and the UPM is also key for some of Tradecorp’s strategic projects, such as the Biotool platform. These facilities are used to replicate trials with protocols that are very similar to those being conducted in Landlab, the research centre leading the consortium.

An incubator for talented young agronomists

As an agribusiness company, maintaining a close relationship with universities such as the UPM is extremely important for Tradecorp, not only for R&D projects, but also as a way to contact new generations of agricultural engineers.

The agreement with the UPM helps to bring the world of special plant nutrition and biostimulants closer to young agronomists, as well as acting as an incubator for talented graduates so that they can join different departments in the company. In fact, one of the most successful outcomes of the UPM agreement is that the greenhouse acts as a training platform for new agricultural professionals.

Tradecorp’s innovation potential

Innovation is a key part of Tradecorp’s strategy, with over 5% of its turnover being earmarked for R&D investments. In addition to the cooperation agreement with the UPM, Tradecorp has partnership agreements with over 20 research centres and universities in different countries. The company also plays an active role in the development of international regulatory frameworks and is a co-founder of the European Biostimulants Industry Council (EBIC).

Tradecorp has a proven track record in adapting to changes in agricultural technology and consumer trends. It has conducted over 1,500 field trials and currently has a portfolio of more than 200 trials per year.

Consequences of COVID-19

In March 2020, greenhouse activities came to a sudden halt with the onset of COVID-19. However, ongoing trials were completed albeit with many restrictions and limitations. In August 2020, trials were resumed again in full compliance with health measures and recommendations to ensure the safety of students and specialists.

At present, the Tradecorp team’s visits to the university and its facilities are somewhat limited, but the greenhouse is back to full capacity thanks to renewed efforts and improved online communication. With the renewal of the agreement until May 2022 and the improvement in the health situation, the company is confident that the coming months will be an excellent period in which to make progress with Tradecorp’s R&D projects.

In early 2001, Marc André, who was the Director of Tradecorp in Europe at the time, contacted Luigi Taraborrelli, the manager of an American multinational who was looking for new challenges. That phone call marked the beginnings of Tradecorp Italia which, over the last 20 years, has carved out a leading role for itself in the special nutrition segment in the highly competitive Italian market.

 

As a result of the internationalisation drive that started in 2000, the Spanish company decided to open an office in Italy, one of Europe’s leading agricultural countries. Its initial portfolio was based on its most popular products at the time, such as Humifirst (then Humistar), Folur and Final K. It subsequently added chelates, Tradecorp’s flagship range, whose production plant in Avila (Spain) is one of the few in the world that can synthesise the chelating agent EDDHA.

 

In the Italian market, Tradecorp, together with other leading companies in the sector, was one of the first firms to talk about biostimulants in 2009 and 2010, promoting their beneficial effects on plant metabolism and boosting production. In 2011, Tradecorp was one of the founding members of the European Biostimulant Industry Council (EBIC) and, in 2012, Phylgreen, a biostimulant based on Ascophyllum nodosum brown algae processed using an exclusive cold extraction system, was launched on the Italian market.

 

These are some of the milestones in the history of Tradecorp Italia, a company which has forged its excellent reputation thanks to its robust product range but above all to its staff who, based on sheer hard work and commitment over the years, have enabled the company to grow in a country which is at the forefront of good agricultural practice.

 

Tradecorp Italia, the group’s sales subsidiary, is made up of a group of 40 highly committed people, including employees and external partners. Many of them have been involved in the project from the outset and we would like to thank them for all of their efforts over the years.

 

Finally, special thanks go out to all our business partners, resellers, technicians and farmers who have placed their trust in us over the last two decades, making the growth of Tradecorp in Italy a reality.

Tradecorp ReEvolutions the biostimulant market with Biimore, the ultra-efficient bacterial extract derived
from an exclusive and sustainable plant fermentation process

  • India will be the first market in the internationalization of this product, that consolidates Tradecorp as a benchmark in biostimulation worldwide
  • With a unique and breakthrough formulation, Biimore allows for an ultra-efficacy performance at ultra-low doses
  • It is recommended for fruit swell and development, horticultural crops, fruit trees and from pre-flowering in broadacre legume crops

Tradecorp launches Biimore, the ultra-efficient biostimulant that places the company at the global forefront of innovation and sustainability. With this new incorporation, Tradecorp continues reinforcing its portfolio of new generation of sustainable products based on primary and secondary compounds that are obtained from natural sources.

Initially developed for the dynamic Brazilian market, where it became the country’s first registered biofertilizer, Biimore counts with years of successful use and more than 100 field trials on different crops worldwide. Now Tradecorp is internationally presenting this novelty, which is set to jumpstart another ReEvolution in farming starting with India as first market (marketed as Quikon), before Tradecorp will expand it globally.

Ultra-efficacy at ultra-low doses

The main feature of Tradecorp new launch is its extremely high efficacy at ultra-low doses. In fact, the standard dose recommended by Tradecorp is between 20 and 200 mL per hectare and application, depending on the crop, which is a 10 – 40 times lower dose than what is normally recommended for other biostimulants.

“Years of experience in Brazil and our global field trials program in numerous crops and countries have been decisive in adjusting the dose required to achieve maximum efficacy at ultra-low doses”, explains Camila Levy, Tradecorp´s R&D Manager. “This enables us to count on comprehensive knowledge and experience when bringing this revolutionary product first to India and later the world. And we are not finished. We will continue developing more trials and analysis to ensure an even greater understanding of the product”, she adds.

According to Tradecorp, the reason behind Biimore’s ultra-efficiency is its unique combination of primary and secondary compounds, including L-α amino acids, vitamins, sugars and traces of other natural compounds. The combination is so unique they compare it to a “fingerprint”: “There may be other products on the market with a similar composition, but none of them can replicate the unique combination of primary and secondary compounds found in Biimore”, explains Cathal Daynes, the Tradecorp Global Technical Manager.

To make the most out of this ultra-efficient biostimulant, Tradecorp recommends applying its new biostimulant for fruit swell and development in horticultural crops, fruit trees and from pre-flowering in broadacre legume crops. “An ultra-low dose of Biimore is enough to achieve impressive results: particularly increased fruit size and quality, along with an increase in yield. It is a state of the art tool to help growers produce what markets are demanding in terms of quality, yield and sustainability, while meeting market trends”, states Jorge Aguilar, Global Marketing Director at Tradecorp.

An exclusive and sustainable production process

Biimore is naturally obtained from the fermentation of sugar cane molasses using a specific strain of Corynebacterium glutamicum bacteria. Microquimica Tradecorp, the firm’s subsidiary in Brazil, developed a meticulous production technique specifically for agriculture that has been consistently refining.

The manufacturing process for Biimore involves the precise application of factors, such as pH, time, temperature and light to control fermentation. According to Tradecorp, any minimum variation would turn this biostimulant into a completely different product.

Farm to Fork is a strategy promoted by the European Union which aims to respond to the challenges of finding sustainable food systems and understands that there is a close relationship between healthy people, healthy societies and a healthy planet (The keys to “Farm to Fork”: an ambitious joint commitment to sustainability). 

At Tradecorp, in line with our steadfast commitment to sustainability and the health of people and the planet, we are doing our utmost to make a positive contribution to attaining the objectives of this ambitious initiative. And we do so around five principles set out by the European Union (A healthier and more sustainable EU food system is a cornerstone of the European Green Deal) through which we develop policies and projects that enable us to do our bit for a better world. 

Ensuring healthy, affordable and sustainable food for Europeans 

Since its inception, Tradecorp’s mission has been to “feed the planet through safe, healthy solutions to create well-balanced, sustainable agriculture.” In order to deliver on our mission, we conduct research into innovative products that enable us to promote and be part of a more productive, environmentally friendly and sustainable way of farming. 

Combating climate change 

We are all suffering the consequences of climate change. Tradecorp has worked for many years to combat this phenomenon through its long-standing commitment to implementing policies and projects that cut the CO2 our factories and offices emit into the atmosphere.  

We are ISO 14001 certified, which means that our production plants, located in Sanchidrian and Albacete (Spain), prevent and minimise their environmental impact through the reduction of emissions and waste, and the efficient use of natural resources and energy.  

In addition, we carry out annual energy audits to improve our environmental policies. For example, we have installed inverters in our drying tower fans that will save 16 MWh of energy per year; the boiler has been insulated so that it does not lose heat and practically all the facilities use LED lighting technology. 

Protecting the environment and preserving biodiversity 

We are concerned about protecting the environment and using natural resources wisely. As part of our commitment, we are members of GLOBALG.A.P., a platform for benchmarking best practice in the global agricultural industry. 

All of our active agents are registered and are fully compliant with the REACH regulation. We are also a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact. This means that our activities and strategies are aligned with ten principles derived from UN declarations on the environment, as well as human rights, labour and anti-corruption. 

Fair economic returns in the food chain 

All our products are designed to improve crop yields without harming the environment. This means being able to produce more with less. Our premium quality products, which are formulated for all types of crops and adapted to local agronomic conditions, are very effective, enabling farmers to grow profitable crops and harvests. 

Promoting organic farming 

Organic farming plays a significant role in our company. In 2018, sales of this type of products accounted for 49% of the company’s total turnover.   

Currently, a large number of our products are approved for use in organic agriculture, according to European standards, National Organic Program (NOP) standards or both. Thus, we can cater for the needs of European farmers and help them to comply with and mainstream the objectives of the European Commission, which aims for at least 25% of all agricultural land to be under organic farming by 2030 (A Farm to Fork Strategy for a fair, healthy and environmentally-friendly food system).

In 2021, Tradecorp celebrates its 20th anniversary in the Baltic countries.

We have invited Marc Andre, the initiator of Tradecorp’s business in the Baltic countries, for an interview that will remain in our memories.

1. How and when did you start working in Tradecorp?

In 2000, I finished my mandate at NOR

SK HYDRO (now YARA). At the time, Tradecorp had become part of SAPEC and they asked me to do a market study on trace elements and foliar fertilisers in Northern Europe. It’s interesting to note that biostimulants were not included in the study, although they now represent more than half of Tradecorp’s sales.  

The major conclusion of this study was that “Market leadership is based on strong marketplace know-how and the ability to respond rapidly to growers’ problems. Proximity to end-users and product credibility are pre-conditions of market entrance.” 

After presenting this research to the Sapec Board, they asked me to create the Europe-Africa subsidiary by applying these principles. Over a period of 17 years, I have been responsible for creating a team of 40 people that has performed all the necessary functions required to develop the market, boost the agronomic positioning of our products, and carry out all the marketing, sales and customer support tasks. Together, and thanks to an amazing team spirit, we have managed to generate an impressive turnover, thanks to the combination of Ying and Yang, creativity and rigour, enthusiasm and strength. 

 

2.How did you startand develop Tradecorp’s business in the Baltics? 

In 2000, I was in contact with Kemira, a Finnish company, and I had the good fortune to have been involved with their “Specialties” development team.  

At the time, I was asked to give some training in sales techniques, and Kemira’s directors were among the managers that I had trained. This experience was a resounding success, and we forged strong personal links, which made it easier for me to introduce Tradecorp’s ranges in the Baltic countries. In fact, it is by cultivating these connections that we have managed to create a true partnership with Kemira, which is currently known as Baltic Agro. 

It is by showing humbleness that we have made them proud and by acting as “educators” that we have encouraged their creativity. Our partnership has been successful thanks to Renata Laurė, who has been our ambassador for 17 years. It is through her energy and talent that Kemira/Baltic Agro has become ESA’s most important customer. I would like to express my deep respect for her work and my deep gratitude.  

 

3. When wasTradecorp’s first order from its Baltic clients? 

The first market segment that we initially targeted was that of chelates for greenhouse crops, and the first order that Kemira/Baltic Agro placed with us in 2001 (on 29 May, ESA’s first!) was retained for two weeks at the Lithuanian border, because chelates were not on the list of products authorised in Lithuania! 

 

 

4. Do you remember which products were “pioneers” in the Baltics (Lithuania)and where Tradecorp started working in the region? 

Given that the potential of greenhouse crops was limited in these countries, after a few years, we decided to focus on arable crops. It was our best decision, because the potential was huge, and we were the first to officially demonstrate that our products were effective and profitable.  

Thanks to our university collaborations, we objectively proved that products like Aton AZ, Final K, Delfan Plus and Humistar could bring significant yield increases for major crops such as cereals, potatoes, beetroot and rapeseed. Kemira/Baltic Agro was the perfect business partner for approaching large farmers, as it was willing to try out new techniques, and we organized a lot of seminars and field days to present our products to growers.  

We were the pioneers and we took the market by storm! I remember a meeting of 900 farmers organised in central Lithuania, in a basketball stadium! There were more than a million hectares represented in the room, and this conference caused an absolute “tsunami” of Humistar orders! 

 

5. How has agriculture changed in the three Baltic countries over the last 20 years? 

Agriculture in the Baltic countries has intensified over the past 20 years, creating more and more opportunities for companies like Tradecorp, and attracting more and more competitors.  

We became the leaders because we were able to innovate, and because the farmers in these countries were very open-minded and were keen to try out and test innovative products. Though this was not everything. The main thing was our team of enthusiastic, motivated and competent salespeople to convince the farmers. This is where we were unbeatable, thanks to the highly motivated local workforce. 

 

 6. What are thebest memories you have of Tradecorp’s initial years in the Baltics? 

The most beautiful anecdote I remember is a party that the Lithuanian team organised when I left. They were all there, including the top management, and they all thanked me sincerely for bringing so many good solutions to their customers.  

Friendship in Lithuanian is called “DRAUGYSTĖ”. This is what I’ll always carry with me from this great adventure that began 20 years ago!

The consequences of climate change are obvious and are particularly visible in agriculture. One of the most noticeable effects are extreme weather events and drought, especially in southern regions of our planet. 

Climate change has a significant impact on agriculture, given its dependence on geographical, climate and weather conditions. This problem affects millions of people around the world, but the worst consequences are felt in the southern hemisphere.  

Drought and climate change 

Although drought is also caused by human activity, global warming is hastening the degradation of affected areas. Climate change is responsible for the increase in drought episodes due to a lack of rainfall, and the rise in global temperatures is causing more water to evaporate from the world’s basins.  

Consequences for the environment 

The United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) estimates that by 2025, 1.8 billion people will experience absolute water scarcity and two-thirds of the world will be living under water-stressed conditions.   

Drought affects people by reducing their access to safe drinking water, as well as having a negative impact on their livelihoods. UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, estimates that in Somalia since the start of 2019, some 49,000 people have fled the country because of drought, seeking food and water in mostly urban areas. Similarly, in Afghanistan, Iran and Pakistan, “the drought, one of the worst in recent memory, has affected millions – causing dislocation, losses of livestock and damage to crops”. 

Impact on agriculture 

Ultimately, drought has devastating effects on farming. Water is a vital element in crop yields, and a lack of water hinders their optimal growth. In addition, the desertification caused by drought means that the soil loses its capacity to provide nutrients to plants. As a consequence, crop yields decline and end up being insufficient “to meet the nutritional or economic needs of the community” (International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies). 

In its report entitled “The impact of disasters and crises on agriculture and food security: 2021”, the FAO  points out that “drought is the most destructive force for agriculture” in the least developed countries and low- and middle-income countries, “costing the sector USD 37 billion overall.” This damage to crop and livestock production also has an impact on food security and nutrition. 

 Tools to curb drought 

Sustainable land management is a good strategy to cope with drought. So is the implementation of organic farming, which reduces the emission of waste and greenhouse gases into the atmosphere and, by extension, acts as a tool to combat climate change.

Commemorating the celebration this week of Youth Day, on August 12, the new generations, made up of millennials and Generation Z, are committed to sustainability, ecology and the environment, advocating for the fight against climate change and demanding solutions to the climate crisis of power.

Whether driven by the Greta effect or by an awareness of how urgent the change of model is, the truth is that this trend and young people’s social commitment are also influencing and modifying consumer habits. These two generations have understood the value of their individual responsibility to find a global solution to the planet’s problems.  

The results of a survey conducted by Global Webindex show that during the COVID-19 health crisis, 56% of respondents attached particular importance to cutting down on single-use plastics, reducing carbon footprints and to companies behaving more sustainably. The demographic profile of those concerned about the environment revealed that “62% of Gen Z fall into this group, followed closely behind by 59% of millennials” (Why the call for sustainability is now louder than ever). The same study concluded that it is extremely important for these generations to contribute to the community in which they live; to fight for equality; and that they are willing to pay more for sustainable and organic products. 

This dovetails with The Deloitte Global Millennial Survey 2020, which shows that in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis, young people are expressing their desire for change and have modified their personal daily routines across the world to benefit the planet, including increasing consumption of organic and locally produced products. 

In line with growing consumer demand for organic products, the number of farmers and the amount of organic agriculture is increasing. That is why at Tradecorp we are committed to R&D, providing solutions that encourage environmentally friendly farming through a portfolio of more than 50 products that are suitable for organic agriculture, and have been approved under different standards, such as CE, NOP and JAS and recognised by leading certification organisations, such as Ecocert, OMRI and FIBL.

Tradecorp continues to demonstrate its commitment to environmental sustainability and organic agriculture.

The international company based in Spain has been investing heavily in organic since the early 2000s, researching, developing, formulating and manufacturing products that are suitable for organic agriculture.   

The list of products approved for organic agriculture by Ecocert in 2021 includes many of Tradecorp’s premium products, such as Vegenergy, Phylgreen and Final Eko, along with many other key products in Tradecorp’s portfolio.  

In addition to complying with the European Union’s organic agriculture standards, some of Tradecorp’s products have also been carefully formulated to comply with other organic agriculture regulations. At present, Tradecorp has:

  • 47 products approved for organic agriculture under EC regulations (European Union) by Ecocert 
  • 6 products approved for organic agriculture under JAS standards (Japan) by Ecocert 
  • 3 products approved for organic agriculture under the NOP regulation (United States)  

 

Tradecorp in organic agriculture 

More than ever, market trends are moving towards organic, environmentally friendly products and solutions. Besides the initiatives that are pushing for organic like the Green Deal and Farm to Fork, recent statistics reveal that this trend set new records in 20191, with 72.3 million ha farmed worldwide and a market of over €106 billion, according to FIBL. 

Since 2006, Tradecorp has been working to ensure that its organic range is approved by recognised certification bodies. This gives farmers guarantees that the products they are using comply with the necessary requirements for use in organic agriculture.  

Every year, Ecocert Ibérica, the Spanish branch of Ecocert, verifies Tradecorp’s products and performs a comprehensive audit of its production plants, including a thorough “in situ” analysis of its manufacturing processes. In addition, Tradecorp works with other organisations, such as FIBL, OMRI and Australian Certified for the verification and approval of products for use in organic agriculture.

Over the last two months, Tradecorp has strengthened its foothold in France to better meet the needs of its customers, adapt to new market situations and stimulate growth in the country.

As a result of this expansion strategy, three new sales representatives have joined the Tradecorp team in France.

 

Growth ambitions for the coming years 

These new hires are the first steps in Tradecorp’s Strategic Growth Plan for the next 3-5 years and mean not only an expansion of the team, but also better organisation of its geographical sales areas so it can provide greater support to distributors, opinion leaders and growers.

Remi Lacaille, who was appointed as the new Director of Tradecorp France last October, believes that the investment made to support and accompany our partners will strengthen Tradecorp’s development in France, which is a strategic market for the Rovensa Group. 

“This new organisation is excellent news for me! As the new Director of Tradecorp France, I am delighted to be able to contribute, alongside our strategic customers, to the development of our Biostimulants and Specialty Nutrition solutions in France. With these three new appointments as the first step to growing our resources in the field, we are confident that we will be able to expand the deployment of our product range with existing and new clients”. 

 

The new structure in Tradecorp France 

The three new sales representatives members of staff will be in charge of building contacts with local and regional technical opinion leaders, developing Tradecorp’s brands, negotiating the range with the agricultural distribution sector and finally deploying the firm’s new commercial strategy in their respective regions.  

  • Sophie Talal is joining the North East region. Sophie has several years of sales experience in the industry and was a Sales Representative and Agronomy Manager for the Northern region at Biovitis. 
  • Audrey Pernet is also joining the North East region. Audrey brings with her several years of experience as a technical salesperson at Sonofep. 
  • Olivier BRAULT will be joining the Western region. With 26 years of experience in the field, Olivier was formerly the Technical and Sales Manager at Granéo.
