About us

Our aim at Ilex EnviroSciences is to develop and supply UK farmers and growers with easy to use, advanced nutrition tools to optimise plant health and crop performance with maximum efficiency and minimum environmental impact.

We use only the highest grade raw materials in advanced formulations to deliver nutrition in the most readily plant available forms. We have been pioneers in the use of phosphite technology and plant biostimulant activators to enhance nutrient use efficiency in both foliar fertilisers and nutrient seed treatments. Using the latest developments in plant science and nutrition, product development is ongoing to respond to the challenges and pressures faced by UK growers.
