Organic and conventional crops



Our mission is to offer innovative solutions to farmers that increase their crop yields whilst being respectful of the environment


To this end we have developed the products fiscoterra-g and ficosagro, 100% ecological to contribute to soil regeneration. Thanks to the use of BCB (Biological Crop Booster) technology and the introduction of organic material coming from algae, we can reach very competitive production levels, clearly improving crop yields

Horticultural crops such as Tomatoes, Peppers, Courgettes, Melons, Watermelons, Lettuce etc. have a high nutritional demand and this is caused principally by the hyper intensive production that they are subject to.

In order to mantain the most productive crop yield, we should use an organic material which serves as a nutritional reserve during the entire cycle, as well a a chemical fertilizer which can acheive the desired production levels.

The technical solution BCB (Biological Crop Booster) , thought up by the microbiological technicians at Ficosterra, optimises the organic and material fertilization of the crops and therefore clearly enhances the possibility for extracting nutrients and facilitates the mobility of these same nutrients in the soil and roots, through the use of microorganisms and algae which regenerate the soils.

The combination of our products ficosterra-g and ficosagro offer a solution which is profitable, innovative and clearly beneficial for the farmer, as it uses the soil where the crops develop to enhance the crop yields.
Citrus is a subtropical crop which means that the climate plays a very important role in the development of the crop and of its cycles. Too low temperatures can cause problems with production and even generate losses.

The soil where these crops are developed are the first barrier which it has against the stress, which means that a crop on healthy soil will be much more resistant when faced with climatological stress and pathogens.

The use of our products ficosterra - g and ficoagro would bring about the regeneration of the soil and its improvement, which would result in greater crop resistance to stressful situations.

The crops of berries such as strawberries, raspberries, or blueberries are crops with high requirements for organic matter, due to the nutritional qualities that it brings, therefore high quality fertilizers are necessary.

The BCB (Biological Crop Booster) technology consists of microorganisms that connect the organic matter with the roots of the crops, meaning that its use helps to speed up the metabolism of the organic matter and that these high needs crops have their needs met in the quickest manner possible.

Our products ficosterra-g and ficosagro bring the BCB (Biological Crop Booster) technology to the soil, which is capable of allowing the crop access to the organic material, in consequence heightening the efficiency and the productivity of the crop yield.

For these types of crops the fertilizacion before rotting is very important because this process demands a large quantity of nutrients.

A well developed crop will make a stockpile of nutrients during the entire vegetative phase in order to achieve the processes of flowering and bearing fruit.

If during the vegetative phase the tree suffers adverse conditions, its productions could be decreased, because its nutritional reserve would be more limited and as such it wouldn't be able to apply as many resources into production.

Our products fisosterra-g and ficosagro assure the necessary nutrition for the crop yield, as they contain all of the necessary elements for correct fruition.

The grain crops develop mainly in dry conditions.This means that it is a crop with small margins, with a lot depending on the climate.

This fact, added to the high cost of organic fertilization, mean that this type of crop is developed in soils with a low nutritional value and in soils in which chemical fertilization is its only way of nourishment.

The product ficosagro works on the soil and on applied fertilization, increasing efficiency and encouraging the movement of the retained nutrients. This permits us to improve the crop conditions at a low cost, and therefore increase its production.
Used for their high capacity for bringing nitrogen to the soil, and a such improvng the nutritional quality of the soils, they are a fixed alternative in the dry land farms nowadays. The simbiosis developed in their roots along with rhizobium bacteria is what makes this crop a “green” fertilizer. The product ficosagro contains bacteria capable of bringing nitrogen from the atmosphere and ammoniacal nitrogen, enhancing the effect caused by the rhizobium bacteria. For this reason its used improves not only the crop itself, but also the addition of nitrogen which has already been facilitated.
