Additives for increased efficiency

Amino acid

Highly active organic
compounds that stimulate and strengthen the crop to acclimate to critical situations.


The set of seaweed extracts effects a good and stable growth even under stress conditions (heat, drought, salinity, water stress and cold) due to the biostimulating effect of natural plant ingredients from four different algae species. As a result the plant remains stable and strong.

IPM Enhancer

Plant health needs to be seen as a whole. Apart from the use of pesticides, feeding the plants is one of the most important factors in enhancing the resistance against pathogens such as insects and fungi. The ingredients in Complesal®are being chosen very carefully to ensure that all nutrients are perfectly available to the plants and help crops to utilize the applied spray mix.


External factors such as rain can cause wash off of the spay film. The new Folistick technology ensures a higher durability against external factors such as rain. Complesal® Folistick guarantees a lasting adhesive on the foliage to increase the uptake of nutrients and active ingredients of the added pesticides.
