Environmental Sustainability

Responsible Harvest of Our Raw Material

Sustainable Raw Material HarvestAcadian Plant Health™’s sustainable agriculture solutions are derived from Ascophyllum nodosum, the most researched marine plant in the world that grows exclusively in the North Atlantic Ocean. We carefully oversee every step of the harvest of this crop care raw material to ensure a healthy habitat for the animals and other marine plants. Raw material for our agricultural products is gathered using harvesting tools that are gentle on the ecosystem and allow for quick regrowth of the resource. Harvesting less than 25% of the allowed quota, our world-leading resource management system has led to a seaweed stock that is more plentiful and healthy today than it was thirty years ago.

Efficient Manufacturing Process

Acadian Plant Health™ agriculture products are eco-friendly and eco-efficient. They are manufactured with a commitment to improve energy efficiency and waste reduction at all stages of production, and 100% of the valuable raw material is used throughout the process. Rather than throwing out what little material is leftover, it is spread out over the lands surrounding the manufacturing facility. As the insoluble material is of organic origin, it decomposes over time, providing a fertility boost to the soil. Acadian Plant Health™’s agriculture products manufacturing facility has thorough recycling and composting programs, and it is continuously evaluating new methods and technologies to further minimize its ecological footprint.

Environmentally Friendly Crop Care Solutions

Acadian Plant Health™ prides itself on providing farmers with safe and natural biostimulant agricultural products that help optimize their crop’s production. Made of ingredients that are harmless to plants, animals and even people, Acadian’s crop care products generally do not cause chemical interactions with other crop inputs and are compatible with most other agricultural products. For consumers of those crops, Acadian Plant Health™ biostimulant solutions promote food safety as they can decrease a farmer’s need to use harsher crop protection inputs that leave harmful residues on foods.
