Trials have shown the new technology increases yields by up to 50% over conventional techniques David Holloway, Terraseed's Founder and Technical Director, takes up the story:
"I'm basically a plant scientist.The idea for Terraseed
came out of my experience working within the Ministry of Agriculture and the big supermarkets to develop ways of taking chemicals out of the growing chain; it became clear that the big retailers had a power that the government does not, to influence the way crops are grown."
CHANGE IN CLIMATE Terraseed's
development was helped by a change in the political climate , at the same time that David
clients were looking at the question of agrochemicals, the EU was too - with the result that over 60% of the all the agrochemicals in common use in the UK have now been withdrawn and the majority of the remainder are still under review.
...David resigned from what he admits was a "pretty comfortable" position, and formed Terraseed after spending six months researching the idea.
It's this group of growers who are Terraseed's
key customers, and David
has worked with them now for five years to perfect the technology.
