October 17, 2023 / NewsPress Release

Dartmouth, NS, Canada – October 17, 2023 – Acadian Plant Health™ is proud to announce a second CE Mark Certification under the European Union’s new Fertilizer Product Regulation (FPR) as part of the EU Green Deal.

Biostimulants are becoming an increasingly crucial tool in agriculture. With active ingredients that trigger natural plant responses that help plants gain stress tolerance against climatic changes and improve nutrient use efficiency, biostimulants can be critical to solving problems farmers face across the industry.

With more than 40 years of experience as an international leader in sustainable science-based biological solutions, Acadian Plant Health™ is propelling the $4.5B biostimulant industry forward while setting standards for performance and sustainability.

“At Acadian, we develop biostimulants that deliver long-term benefits through regenerative agricultural practices, and short-term benefits by advancing sustainability without sacrificing productivity,” says David Hiltz, Director of Global Regulatory Affairs, Acadian Plant Health, “Obtaining our second CE Mark Certification is one step, amongst many, to ensure our customers and growers can have confidence that our biostimulant products are safe, effective, and of outstanding quality.”

By obtaining CE Mark Certification of a second Ascophyllum nodosum-based plant biostimulant, Acadian Plant Health™ continues to embrace the pathway to market afforded by the modernized EU FPR 2019/1009.  The CE Mark indicates that an independent Notifying Body has reviewed product composition and performance data, confirming that the biostimulant not only meets safety, health, and environmental protection requirements but also delivers the effects claimed on the labels as shown through agronomic efficacy trials.

Acadian Plant Health™ continues to outpace competitors with investment in research and development, including field-tested data to support the consistency and reliability of its Ascophyllum nodosum seaweed extract solutions. In delivering a clear standard of excellence within the sector, Acadian Plant Health™ is helping transition the biostimulant industry into a new stage within the agriculture space, delivering novel solutions that solve for some of the most pressing issues the worldwide agriculture industry faces.
