General information and company's products


The most important products of our company

  • «Golden Humus M-80»
  • «Biohumous Leonardite V.P.»
Our company has started its activity with the production of these products. They form the spine for the totality of our products since they are contained in their compound at a percentage ranging from 25% to 54%. «Golden Humus M-80» and «Biohumous Leonardite V.P» are part of the soil-amending fertilizers’ category. Their greatest part consists of leonardite, the most effective and, at the same time, the most qualitative organic substance of the market. Leonardite, after a special brewing process carried out in our facilities, contains humic and fulvic acids at a percentage ranging from 10% to 12%, as well as 50,000,000 beneficial microorganisms per product gram. This is a mineral product, free of phyto-pathogenic substances, as it is collected from places situated at least two meters underground. Soil regeneration, effective activation and transfer to the plant of all N-P-K units are only some of the most important benefits of this organic substance's incorporation to our products. «Golden Humus M-80» and «Biohumous Leonardite V.P,» products are developed through all these years, from the foundation of our company till today, so that their application on crops bears the best, unbeatable results.

Indicatively, the most popular product ranges produced by our company, per fertilizer category, are the following:

Organic/ Organic-Chemical fertilizers: «Complehumosan M-80» and «Humo Vas M-80» product lines are specialized, compound organic-chemical fertilizers (with trace elements) with unbeatable results targeting to the rational fertilisation of crops, covering in this way plant needs in all nutritional elements improving at the same time soil fertility and stricture. It is worth mentioning that many customers who tried these products have become ''loyal''.

Biological fertilizers: «Super Eco-Vas» and «Oftel» product lines were created in order to compete standard types of fertilisers. In the beginning of the attempt, this target seemed to be unachievable. The application of these types was reaching 50% of the results of standard products. After ten (10) years of research in finding the ideal (appropriate and qualitative) raw materials and trials regarding the best fertilization times, the most effective techniques / methods of fertilization and the ideal quantity per occasion, we have managed to succeed in what has initially seemed to be impossible. These products bring better or at least equivalent quantity results compared with the standard ones, but more than improved in terms of quality. Moreover, applying these products to crops, growers actively contribute to environmental protection.

Composts: In the category of composts, «Compost Torf» product line has acquired loyal customers in the Greek Market. This type is also used in Biological Agriculture as it is composed by 93% of high quality white peat (in contrast to black peat, blonde has a very low water content, low moisture content and thus the amount of white peat that can fit in a bag is almost double compared to that occupied by the black) and it is supplemented with perlite and biological fertilizer (Super-Eco-Vas).

It is noteworthy that 80% of customers who bought one of our company's products once, stay active until today.

Benefits and comparative advantages of our products


Benefits

The combination of the most qualitative and effective organic substance (Golden Humus «M-80») with high quality N-P-K units and trace elements constitutes the most complete care for both plants and the soil. The principal benefits of our products’ application are mentioned below:
  • Improvement of soil structure, ensured by the presence of «Golden Humus M-80» in all our product types.
  • Improvement of soil fertility through enrichment with beneficial microorganisms and activation already existing microbial population in the soil.
  • Release, protection (organic-mineral molecules) and mobilization of bound nutrients (cations) in soil colloids.
  • Adjustment of soil P.H.
  • Protection of fertilizer nutrients from bindings or leaching (protection of the groundwater table) and utilization of inorganic fertilizers coming from previous fertilizations.
  • Direct provision of humic-fulvic acids to the plant since the first stages of its growth.
  • Improvement of soil's moisture capacity and growth of a rich root system.
  • Temperature increase in the plant's rhizosphere (because of the product's black colour) and, also, protection from low temperatures (frost).
  • Improved soil analysis with more organic substance
  • Increase of production and quality improvement of products manufactured
  • Accomplishment of plants' longevity and stoutness
  • The best solution for denitrification

Comparative benefits of our products compared to alternative market solutions

Integrated and balanced nourishment, without losses: clustering of N-P-K units both with trace elements and the organic substance («Golden Humus M-80») results to the supply of all nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium units without losses (they are not washable, as it happens with the application of inorganic fertilizers to crops) providing thus full nourishment, steadily and effectively.

Resource saving: Applying our products in plants full nourishment is achieved; no additional fertilization actions are necessary, unlike the widely popular method of fertilization (of soil-amending, inorganic fertilizers and trace elements) in two or three different stages. This results to resource saving (reduced time, minimization of fertilization costs). Three fertilizations in one are achieved.

The most appropriate areas to apply our products


Features of environmental conditions (climate, soil, etc.), where our products present comparative benefits related to competitive ones.

Despite the fact that our products are mainly used where products of other companies are also used, in adverse environmental conditions (climate, soil, plant stoutness) they present strong comparative benefits against all others.

In adverse environmental conditions, plants should be healthy and have very strong defence mechanisms. With the addition of the organic substance («Golden Humus M-80»), trace elements and N-P-K units to our products, its nourishment is complete, balanced and more effective compared to the performances presented by other competitive products on the market. Furthermore, the application of our products on crops improves soil fertility and structure and effectively regulates P.H. (calcium or sulphur is also included in our products). As a result, the plant is shielded and may develop appropriate defence mechanisms.

Features of soils where our products are ideal for use

Sandy soils with organic substance deficiency:

  • Coastal areas with agricultural development
  • Areas / places with desert (e.g. Africa etc.)

Systematically cultivated soils:

  • Areas where horticultural products are cultivated (tomatoes, watermelons, cucumbers, etc.)
  • Areas where cereals, cotton are cultivated

In soils with calcium deficiency (low P.H. acidic soils):

  • In mountainous areas
  • In coastal areas

In solils with high P.H. ( alkaline soils)
