SmartAgro’s agronomists have developed a highly successful system which manages to decrease production costs and increase yields without relying on chemicals. Soil and plant health go hand in hand, but the latest organic inputs clearly reduce the risk of crop failure to a minimum. We offer a wide spectrum of bio products, from beneficial cover/relay crops to micro nutrients and inputs that increase both plant vitality and profits in agricultural production, all for the same goal: enhance human health.
Strategic use of cover crops is an investment in the land that pays dividends in the form of greater long-term productivity and sustainability. With rich potential for a diversity of applications, cover crops fix nitrogen into the soil, can be used as forage, are beneficial for certain insects, control erosion, add organic matter, conserve moisture, and support the integrity of soil and watershed ecology. By growing your own inputs, you economize on fertilizers, animal feed, and hay mulch, while improving the overall health of your livestock, soils, crops, the food you produce and, ultimately, the surrounding environment and yourself.
Legumes are a group of plants in the pea family, which includes beans, vetch, clover, and alfalfa, all of which supply nitrogen to the soil through rhizobial bacteria. Planting legumes improves soil health, reduces fertilizer costs, and increases yields. Further benefits they provide when used as a cover crop include erosion control, addition of organic matter to the soil, and moisture conservation.
Saving costs while increasing soil fertility:

SmartAgro provides mixes of cover crops, grasses, legumes and other species to enhance the biological processes and to improve the efficiency of your copping system. That means improving soil structure through complex root systems, biological fixation of nitrogen, full protection of your top soil against erosion and weed control.
Rather than using only one cover crop our SmartMixes accelerate the soil fertility restoration. Our SmartMixes are designed for different purposes and climatic soil conditions:
SmartBooster is used prior to sowing your main crop: Within a short period of only sixty days this mix produces a diverse biomass of up to 10t per ha (dried). The perfect way to protect your soil and to provide nutrients for your main crops. Simultaneously, the thick mulch on the surface suppresses weeds and saves you work, time and money.
SmartStructurator is based on a mix of dense tap- and fibrous roots growing up to 1m deep in 60 days. The Structurator’s strong roots improve the soil structure, increase oxygen flow and improve water balance in the field. The combined effect of roots and high biomass above ground contribute to the regenerative soil building effect. Up to 15t/ha dried biomass introduced to the soil.
SmartOrchard is a mix of creeping perennial legumes controlling weeds and providing nitrogen for free.
SmartRubber and SmartPepper are mixes of perennial legumes that cater to the specific requirements of each cropping system and involve a diversity of plants.
SmartN comprises of a mix of legumes and grasses that fix a high amount of organic nitrogen (no leaching). Good weed control.
SmartP consists of a mix rich in legumes that make available high amounts of phosphorus.
SmartK is a perfect mix for cassava and other tuber production. High amounts of potassium are recycled within the biomass. In addition, this mix works as a bio herbicide and will save costs through its allelopathic effect inhibiting germination of weeds.
All mixes fulfill a wide range of functions, but each one is designed to solve a specific constraint.
Combined with CA techniques of no-till, cover and relay crops, crop rotation and diversification, our inputs will be all farmers need in order to successfully protect crops from manageable hazards such as nutrient deficiencies, pests, diseases, mild to medium droughts and floods. At the same time the food grown this way will contain more nutrients.
Moreover, SmartAgro offers chemical-free preservative agents for processed or unprocessed (organic) food that will extend the shelf-life of any product, whether liquid, fruit/vegetable, meat or processed. This way, it is finally possible to make organic food last longer.
All of our inputs are organically certified.
█ NATURAL GROWTH: A natural “broad-spectrum” foliage plant aid with an application rate of 9kg / ha. Stimulates the plant’s metabolism and promotes cell formation and flowering. Optimizes nutrient uptake, boosts plant growth, resilience against fungi and insects. Creates a healthy relationship between root growth and shoot growth, which increases resistance to stress by drought or flood. Particularly in fruit and vegetable production better-shaped fruit is produced with better aromas and higher nutrient content. Increases yields and saves costs.

█ BIO HUM: is a humic acid rich in activated organic matter that increases the fertility of plants and soils. BioHum recovers plants in stress (drought and flood) and physiological disorders caused by pesticides. BioHum promotes the natural formation of amino acids and generates higher nutrient content in crops. It is the best tool to control soil depletion and diseases such as nematodes, Fusarium, etc. BioHum can hold mass 20 times its size and is very good for nutrient and water retention in the soil and highly effective against drought. BioHum even improves compacted soils. BioHum is the best food for both healthy plants and healthy soils.
█ BIO FULL: is a unique formula of a foliar fulvic acid fertilizer that acts directly on the plant’s metabolism. Stimulates cell division and plant growth. Increases chlorophyll biosynthesis, drought tolerance and yield. BioFull detoxifies pollutants (pesticides, herbicides, etc.) and eliminates oxygen free radicals by acting as an antioxidant. BioFull enables the immediate absorption of herbicides, fungicides, etc., and works as protection against losses due to rain. This way BioFull reduces the use of chemicals by up to 50% and replaces mineral adhesives, orange oil, adjuvants –all in one product. BioFull is also an excellent tool for healing phytotoxicity in plants.
