Hockley Agro launches BRANDT® Micronutrients in the UK
Hockley Agro UK is pleased to announce its new agreement with BRANDT USA, a leading agricultural company serving growers around the globe.
BRANDT was founded in 1953 by Glen Brandt and his sister Evelyn Brandt Thomas to help Illinois farmers adopt new and profitable technologies. BRANDT’s focus is providing the products and services that give growers the best opportunity for maximum return while building a stronger, healthier and more abundant food supply.
BRANDT, a leading manufacturer of agricultural specialty products, will supply Hockley Agro with its proprietary Manni-Plex® and Smart System® foliar lines.
“We are pleased to be working with Hockley to expand the use of BRANDT nutritionals in the United Kingdom,” said Dr. Ramon Georgis, Vice President - Brandt International LLC. “Hockley is a dynamic company that shares our vision of delivering effective and innovative solutions to today’s growers.”
Rick Brandt, President and CEO of BRANDT said “This is an important milestone. This is the first time growers in the UK will have access to BRANDT nutrition products. We are proud to welcome Hockley into the BRANDT family: This is a great way to head into 2021.”
BRANDT Smart System advanced compatibility foliar nutrients are applied with post-emergent herbicides and help mitigate crop stress. BRANDT Manni-Plex high performance foliar nutrients deliver essential micronutrients and help improve quality and yield, aiding flower and seed formation, enriching colour and lengthening storage life.
BRANDT products are available through approved distributors throughout the U.S. and in 51 countries around the world. This new partnership means that these products, now manufactured in Europe, will be available through Hockley Agro UK to farmers throughout Britain.
