At GLEE in 2014 David Holloway, Technical Director at Terraseed was invited by UK Trade and Investment to talk about his innovative ideas and how his company developed the commercial licensing deals for industrial products and for the BeeMat range.

With a scientific background through Wye College, University of London
has wide ranging senior management experience with over 20 years in the horticultural and agricultural industries through ADAS Consulting.

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:
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the EU was too - with the result that over 60% of the all the agrochemicals in common use in the UK have now been withdrawn and the majority of the remainder are still under review.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.
