AlgaEnergy microalgae technology in these Ecocert Certified products is available to organic growers in Asia, Europe and U.S.
AgMA Energy Pvt. Ltd., has received Ecocert certifications qualifying an array of its products for use in organic agriculture production.
AgMA Energy is a 50-50 joint venture formed in 2019 between MicroAlgae Solutions India Pvt. Ltd., the India subsidiary of Madrid-based AlgaEnergy S.A., a global leader in microalgae biotechnology, and Agrolife Sciences Corp., a subsidiary of Krishi Rasayan Export Pvt. Ltd. (KREPL), one of India’s largest agricultural product companies.
Ecocert, founded in France in 1991, is one of the world’s largest and most respected organic certification organizations, with 26 offices certifying environmentally friendly practices and products in 130 nations worldwide.
Among the newly Ecocert-certified AgMA Energy products are sustainable biological inputs derived from AlgaEnergy’s proprietary microalgae and comprising two classes of biological fertilizers, soil conditioners and biostimulants. They can now be sold to organic growers through distribution partnerships Asia, Europe and the U.S.
“We have worked closely with our partner KREPL to create a portfolio of products, based on AlgaEnergy’s unique microalgae extracts, that meet the exacting needs of organic farmers not only in India but around the world,” said D. Ry Wagner, president of international agribusiness for AlgaEnergy.
“We are proud to partner with AlgaEnergy to introduce their proprietary microalgae and biological products in India,” said Rajesh Agarwal, managing director of KREPL Group. “Farmer response to the products has been highly encouraging, and the products have shown wonderful results in all horticulture, vegetable and field crops. This Ecocert certification will further strengthen confidence in our products among farmers across the globe.”
“India’s farmers face unique challenges, most important among them is low productivity due to extreme climatic events and worsening soil conditions,” said Debabrata Sarkar, chairman and managing director of MicroAlgae Solutions India. “Organic crop inputs such as the microalgae-based products just certified help revitalize soil and improve farm productivity.”
