Koppert Begins Construction of Microbiological Facility in Spain
With the goal of bringing microbiological products to growers around the world, Koppert Biological Systems laid the foundation stone for a new R&D facility in the Spanish town of Vícar.
“This building is much more than an economic investment. It represents Koppert’s commitment to agriculture and reflects our interest in working side by side with farmers to improve the competitiveness and commercial value of their crops,” said Koppert’s local Sales Director, Valter Ceppi. The Mayor of Vícar in the province of Almería, Antonio Bonilla, and Councillor María Fernández, were present at the stone laying ceremony.
Research into microorganisms that are beneficial to agriculture will be one of the key activities to be developed at the new R&D center. This will strengthen Koppert’s commitment to microbiology, a field of research in which the company has already achieved major successes. The identification of fungi and bacteria which naturally increase the growth and productivity of plants, while strengthening the natural resilience of crops against diseases that are mainly transmitted through the root, form the basis for a range of Koppert’s seed, soil and plant enhancement products.
