Our Commitment to Agriculture
Bionature is a UK based fertiliser company specialising in providing cutting edge, smart liquid fertiliser for growers of all crops across the UK. Here at Bionature we believe that providing smart nutrition to a crop in a “little and often” approach is the best way to maintain the health and help to realise all crops full potential. We also strongly believe that by applying the principals of sustainable production we can meet the requirements of the plant and the needs of the food industry.
We understand the challenges facing farmers today
The founders of Bionature, Mark Carter and Steve Mowbray, have years of experience working within the agricultural industry. They also run the potato trading company Agri-link Produce and Raleigh Seeds, so they fully grasp not only the challenges faced by farmers today, but the opportunities too.
We understand the importance of enabling the crop to withstand stresses during its growing cycle and we believe that providing good quality, scientifically proven nutrition should be part of every growers approach to maintain health and maximising output and incomes.
