In order to achieve our mission, our R&D department and the research centre Scientia Terrae vzw collaborate day after day to test our products and develop new innovations. Thanks to their intensive analysis, we only bring the most efficient solutions on the market. This means that the environmental impact is as low as possible, which is exactly what we want to achieve: products that benefit nature both in the short and the long term.
Our MINIGRAN® technology, used for the production of our organic and organo-mineral fertilisers, is a good example of product innovation. We developed mini-granules that contain all the nutrients derived from organic raw materials (nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, magnesium and trace elements).
These nutrients are gradually released by microbial activity as soon as the fertiliser granules reach the soil. Microbial activity is closely linked to plant growth, which means that the nutrients in our products are only released when the plant really needs them.
Our soil improvers and potting soils are continuously optimized with appropriate organic fertilisers, lime and other valuable components depending on the application or plant, for optimal soil fertility.
As a result of our own research and tests, DCM has recently launched two biostimulants that increase plant vitality and root system activity. For 2020 we have planned the introduce a new line of liquid fertilisers, consisting mainly of natural ingredients!
Did you know that we collaborate, through our plant clinic, with more than 20 research departments of universities and testing stations in Belgium, the Netherlands and abroad? Practical tests on grower’s premises and on sports fields in the 45 countries in which we are active, are also very important to continuously improve our products, as well as the internal and cross-border sharing of the knowledge that our DCM advisors acquire on this occasion.
