Making Crop Protection Safer

The world population is expected to reach 8.6 billion by 2030. This is putting increasing pressure on food supplies and a growing demand for higher crop yields.


The cost to develop a new crop protection product averages US$250 million and 10 years, but farmers need safe, affordable crop protection products now. There is therefore increased interest in products that are safer and better for the environment, such as mineral-based sprays that improve productivity and boost resistance to pests and diseases.


Calix BOOSTER-Mag is a revolutionary agricultural solution for increased yield, more efficient fertiliser usage, insect / pest management, and fungal control.

Safe, low cost, environmentally sustainable and easy-to-apply, BOOSTER-Mag can improve yield and natural resistance to pests and diseases. It demonstrably provides a substantial safety, simplicity, sustainability and productivity benefit.
