Founded in 1956, today ILSA is one Italy’s top companies in the market for biotechnology for plant nutrients and bio-stimulants. The company manufactures, sells, researches and develops innovative products for farming. Its products feature high nutritional efficiency and low environmental impact. Ilsa is present in Italy, Europe, and in the other continents. The company continues to expand into new markets. The ILSA strategy, which has led the company to the top of the fertilizer market and to its position as a benchmark for the market, can be summed up in three words: flexibility, innovation, and enthusiasm.
Ilsa’s mission is the manufacture and production of fertilizers, bio-stimulants and resistance inductors capable of meeting the needs of continuously more demanding farming programs that pay more and more attention to environmental problems.
The will for continuous improvement
ILSA’s calling is to formulate innovative, high quality, efficient products using primarily valuable natural raw materials.
The technical skills gained in time, both in terms of technological and agricultural know-how, allow the company to manufacture fertilizers, bio-stimulants, and resistance inductors for highly advanced agriculture, without ever losing sight of the economic needs of the farmer.
Research and Development
There are more than thirty on-going research projects. Some are fully financed by the company while others are partially publicly financed. Among these are projects that will decide the agriculture of the future.
Part of the research activities involve the development and experimentation of new “intelligent” fertilizers that release nitrogen in a controlled manner in harmony with the demands of the plants. This is in line with the new concept of “low impact precision farming”.
Some of the research is dedicated to the development of metabolic activators based on natural molecules. These molecules are capable of increasing yields and effect the self-defence mechanisms of plants, activating the secondary metabolic routes. One of the objectives of this type of research is to promote the reduction of the use of agricultural pharmaceuticals.
A portion of research activities concentrates on the use of applied microbiology to better understand the soil system, environment, and plants.
We owe what we are today to the commitment, skills, and dedication of the many individuals who have worked together to reach a common goal:
“Make ILSA a solid, trustworthy company”.
This is the culmination of continuous research, constant process and product innovation, and respect, care and attention to our customers. Our solid presence, credibility, and desire for continuous improvement permit us to compete world-wide, offering our customers the real possibility for economic and professional growth.
