Successful Growtech for Odus

Turkey: Bio-pesticides popular at Growtech Antalya

Odus UK in collaboration with their Korean colleagues attended Growtech 2013 in Antalya, Turkey. "The show was remarkably well attended and we had a fantastic visitor response throughout the four days," said Will Caine from Odus UK. Caine and his colleagues were overwhelmed by the interest in Odus' full range of products from many visitors in the Middle East and North Africa in particular.

"There was particular interest in our Silica series – Dobogen, Dobogen Micro, Dobogenia and Dobogen K," said Caine. "The products have shown up to 80% increase in crop yield. As well as this there was demand for our Bio Pesticide range – Aphid K, Winia Doctor and Imperial S. As there is a trend to move away from excessive chemical pesticide use, many farmers across the world are looking for alternative methods to protect their crops against pest and disease. This was definitely reflected amongst the visitors of Growtech."

During the fair, Odus partnered with their local distributor, Roamtech. "Together with them our Silica product was introduced to an audience of knowledgeable growers from Antalya's greenhouse industry along with Agronomists, distributors and retailers," said Caine who added that even experts from the Istanbul and black sea rice growing areas joined.

"We were able to demonstrate our remarkable results in Greenhouse crops and Rice within Turkey where Bioguard, the local tradename for Odus' Silica product, has demonstrated 30% yield increase on greenhouse crops including tomatoes and on rice."

"Throughout the 2012-2013 growing season our Dobogen (Bioguard in Turkey) trials have yielded good results and enjoyed promising initial sales in the greenhouse industry. We look forward to 2014-2015 in expanding our range within Turkey both in Rice and Greenhouse crops and are now actively working with several local partners as a result of our Growtech meetings."
