B+H SOLUTIONS

B+H Solutions GmbH is a company that develops innovative agricultural concepts based on metal-based fertilizers using nanotechnology. The team from Remshalden has been developing concepts for agriculture to reduce the use of pesticides to zero for over 10 years. The innovative products, which contain trace elements such as copper (Cu), silver (Ag), iron (Fe), boron (B), calcium (Ca), and magnesium (Mg), are used to optimally supply all crops while protecting the environment. This makes the plants more vital and resistant to any pathogens. In the cultivation of cannabis, a significant increase in the harvest and vitality of the young plants can be achieved with this concept.

Plant performance is influenced by versatile abiotic and biotic parameters. In our test setup, we control a range of these parameters and evaluate their influence on growth, yield, fruit quality, and stress tolerance (abiotic and/or biotic). Therefore, we combine classic plant growth assays with bioanalytical technologies, in order to gain a better understanding of the molecular biological processes in the plant. Thus, we provide data independent of seasons in exceptionally short time helping you to identify interesting candidate substances for further studies or new products and to accelerate the market entry.
