Bilsborrow-based, Levity CropScience has announced it is to begin exporting its fertiliser products, Lono and Damu to France.

France is the latest country to be added to the Levity export portfolio, joining Egypt; The Philippines; Canada; the USA and the UAE.

Professional agronomist and leading potato expert in France, Matthieu Cadiou, has also been appointed as the French agent for Levity products.

Based in Brittany, Mathieu will recruit and support distributors, as well as supporting the growers that use Levity products in France. In independent field trials, Lono has been proven to increase root crop yields for growers around Europe by €1,000 per hectare.

France exports more agricultural food products than any other EU nation, accounting for 22 per cent of the output and is the only EU nation to be completely self-sufficient in basic food production.

David Marks, Co-Managing Director, Levity CropScience, said: “I’m delighted to announce our move into the French agricultural market and the appointment of Matthieu will allow us to quickly grow in the country.”
