Ecoculture Biosciences has completed its arrival in Colombia after having made the first shipments of its solutions to help Colombian farmers fight against plant stress. The Almeria based company had been conducting trials in the South American country in recent months and its arrival had been delayed until now due to pandemic.
The first products that the company registered in Colombia were CalFlux and Blush. CalFlux is a solution that allows the plant to absorb and maintain calcium levels in areas that have calcium deficiencies, providing a better structure in the cell wall. Blush is a product designed to improve and accelerate the coloring and quality of fruits. The company will soon register NHDeltaCa in the country; a product that offers the most appropriate form of plant nutrition in terms of the plant's nitrogen use.

"This is a very good opportunity for us because Colombian farmers are facing stressful situations that we know how to solve so we can help them face them," stated Angel Ruiz Serna, the manager of Ecoculture Biosciences. Ruiz Serna has visited Colombia in the last year to meet with technicians and clients of his distributor to explain to them the characteristics and benefits of using Ecoculture's products.
Insumos Biológicos de Colombia (Ibicol) will be Ecoculture Biosciences' distributor in Colombia. "Ecoculture's range of products will offer solutions for Colombia's main crops, which apart from coffee include fruits such as avocado, strawberry, blueberry, and lemon; and vegetables like lettuce, spinach or cabbage,” stated Francisco Pradilla, Ibicol's manager.
Ecoculture Biosciences accredits exceptional results in the management of abiotic stress situations in avocado crops, with a strategy to minimize losses in cultivation through a program that responds to situations that cause significant losses for the producer and that significantly improves production.
Ecoculture celebrated its tenth anniversary in 2020. In recent months, the company strengthened itself in the national market in areas such as Huelva, the Costa Tropical of Granada, Malaga, and the Valencian Community. In addition, it made advances in Eastern Europe and strengthened its presence in South America, where it was already established in Brazil and Argentina, by establishing itself in Colombia.
