Agrovista partners with Carbon Gold as UK distributor

02/10/2018

Agrovista UK Ltd, one of the UK’s leading suppliers of agronomy advice, seed, crop protection products and precision farming services, has partnered with Carbon Gold to distribute enriched biochar products to the commercial horticulture sector in England, Scotland and Wales.

Biochar is a porous and high-carbon form of charcoal that helps to improve, the structure, water-holding capacity and aeration of soils and substrates and provides an ideal refuge for beneficial microorganisms that improve plant health.

Carbon Gold’s biochar products, which are made in the UK, are enriched with Trichoderma species and a blend of mycorrhizal fungi, seaweed and wormcasts to enable faster establishment and root growth in plants, improving their health and vitality.

The partnership sees Agrovista become the exclusive distributor of Carbon Gold’s Enriched Biochar Soil Improver, Biology Blend, and Fertiliser products.  James MacPhail, Commercial Director of Carbon Gold, says, “We’ve spent the last three years doing the ground work to establish Carbon Gold and enriched biochar in the commercial horticulture market in the UK and Europe.

“We’re seeing growing brand awareness and with a number of successful commercial trials under our belts, a growing customer base and positive scientific research from the likes of ADAS, we’re now ready to take our products to a wider market.

“Agrovista has access to that wider market, and the team’s experience and technical knowledge made them the best fit to take us to the next level of growth.”

Michael Bannister, Head of Commercial Horticulture at Agrovista, says, “It’s an exciting time to take Carbon Gold’s enriched biochar products on.  It has quickly become known as a product that adds significant value to both conventional and organic growers, consistently improving plant health, vigour and resilience and, ultimately, boosting yields.  We’re looking forward to taking its enriched biochar products to more of our country’s growers.
