Plant Care

Biological solutions for agriculture, forestry and horticulture.

Lallemand’s historical expertise is in the production of yeast for the North American baking industry, a sector it has been operating in from the early 20th century. Utilizing the acquired knowledge and the technological assets in microbiology and fermentation as a base, Lallemand has come to serve the needs of other industries through the production of specialty yeast, bacteria and fungi, as well as their derivatives.

Through the acquisition of companies who specialize in various aspects of biological plant protection and nutrition, Lallemand has become an active proponent of microbial plant care solutions by developing, producing and marketing fungal, bacterial and yeast biocontrol products, biofertilizers and biostimulants.

Lallemand Plant Care specializes in supplying biological plant protection, biostimulation and biofertilization products that improve productivity and plant vitality, without releasing undesired pesticide residues into the environment. Biological plant protection utilizes nature’s own methods for the prevention of plant diseases and pests. Pathogens are controlled by their natural enemies – microbes isolated from nature. Biostimulation is another method used to improve plant resistance to disease and stress and to stimulate natural processes to improve yield and crop quality. Biofertilization optimizes soil resources making nutrients available to the plant by fixing atmospheric nitrogen or solubilizing phosphorous in the soil.
