Belchim Crop Protection, a Belgian player in the European crop protection market. From its origin in Belgium in 1987 to its position as a major European player in the crop protection industry today, Belchim Crop Protection has shown remarkable growth in those 31 years. As a company and an innovative product supplier, it has adapted well to the changes in the industry and the changing regulatory environment. Late Managing Director Dirk Putteman founded his own crop protection business, Belchim, in 1987. By the late 1990s, he sought and found a strategic partnership with ISK Biosciences, and established an international research and development company. This alliance allowed not only a more specialized product portfolio, but also further expansion into Europe. Alongside an innovative product portfolio, credibility and reputation are strong assets of Belchim Crop Protection; and above all, the ability to market a product from a strong introduction to a good market coverage in a short time.
Belchim Crop Protection, managed by its new CEO Johan De Saegher, carries a broad range of state-of-the-art crop protection products but also products for home and garden and amenity use. The recent acquisition of the biological herbicide ‘Katoun Gold’, a good example of sustainable use in a circular economy concept. The product is derived from the cultivation of Cardoon thistle (grows where it is impossible for crops to grow) and its use as an environmentally friendly solution for weed management in public spaces.
Alongside the efficacy of a product, the tox and ecotox profile of a compound is extremely important. With the right choice of products, meaning, safe products with a profile that will survive not only the present, but also future regulatory requirements, Belchim Crop Protection is offering real solutions for sustainable crop management. Belchim has shown, throughout its history, to be a reliable and competent partner, always with a high sense of reality.
