Alcaplant® New is a formulation patented by Codiagro containing 35% calcium oxide for its application on acidic and/or saline soils. It is manufactured with a complex process, also patented by Codiagro, which ensures great stability of the formulation and high efficiency. Additionally, it does not have the side effects of other formulations containing salts which may be harmful, such as carbonates, sulphates, chlorides or nitrates. Alcaplant® New is "calcium and only calcium."
Codiagro is a Spanish manufacturer, leader in the field of Agronutrients, Phytonutrients and Deficiency correctors, and always ahead in terms of innovation. "As a result, many patents have been obtained, particularly the AMEC® molecule, the true heart for many of our products, and the patent for the manufacturing of Concentrated Suspensions of Calcium, such as ALCAPLANT® New, the only one in the world that only contains calcium, without nitrates, chlorides, carbonates or sulphates," affirms a qualified representative of Codiagro. "ALCAPLANT® New is only manufactured in Spain and is sold worldwide with this brand, expect for Chile and Peru, where it is sold under the brand Magnific Ca Flow®, registered by Codiagro just for these two countries," he continues.
"Since its creation, 34 years ago, Codiagro has looked for solutions to all kinds of problems with crops, not in the overuse of agrochemicals and fertilisers, but in plant physiology. Our goal is to control the nutrition and productive capability of plants in a non-aggressive way for maximum production and the greatest fruit quality," says the firm's representative.
Additionally, the firm manufactures and sells a wide range of products, among which we can highlight:
• AGROXILATO-K®, the first cluster-root carboxylate and the only one with the patented AMEC® molecule.
• POTASION®, the potassium carboxylate with AMEC®.
• SAL-WAX®, liquid or solid desalinators, with AMEC®.
• CODICOBRE®, safener based on systemic 100% complexed copper.
• AGROXILATOS®, range of deficiency correctors, in the form of carboxylates, which do not contain any harmful salts.
• MAGNIFIC®, XILATO® and RADISOL®, are Codiagro's trademarks used to sell its products in Chile and Peru.
It is important to highlight that the firm has a range of phytonutrients certified for organic agriculture, under the NOP, EU and JAS legislations.
With the wish to expand and enter new markets, "Codiagro's main strategy is the internationalisation of its products, which are currently available in more than 25 countries, and it will soon begin another internationalisation campaign with the goal of looking for new distributing firms in various countries all over the world," explains Enrique Sales, Manager of Codiagro.
Social and scientific commitment
Codiagro is in partnership with several institutions such as AEFA, the Spanish Association of Agronutrient Manufacturers, and Castellon's Jaume I University, with which it has agreements to promote scientific research applied to its products.
In its continuous effort to become a leading firm in the sector, the Codiagro Foundation was created in 2011, "with the idea of catering for specific social needs through many different activities, with special reference to research development, scientific consulting and agriculture-related services."
The firm entered the field of social marketing with the use of Facebook
. "We had good expectations which in reality were far exceeded. This led as to continue in the same direction, creating also a YouTube
channel, and at the moment we are about to get started with a social network as important as Twitter
," he concludes.
