    Solufeed expertise providing added value to other enterprises.
About First registered in 1946, Solufeed was the brand name of a single ICI fertilizer for the then infant hydroponics industry. The Solufeed brand now embraces hundreds of products sold throughout the world. Products with a reputation for quality, reliability and value and the choice for today's discerning Grower.

In the early 1940's the British Imperial Chemical Industries (ICI) Ltd built experimental glasshouses in the grounds of its headquarters at Fernhurst, close to Haslemere in Surrey, England.  Here pioneering research into the nutrition of hydroponically grown crops, and especially NFT (the Nutrient Film Technique), took place.

From this research came Solufeed 'F' ('F' for Fernhurst) the very first complete hydroponics feed - still sold today!  Later came Solufeed 'H' ('H' for Haslemere) a two component feed specially formulated for tomatoes.

In 1990 Solufeed Ltd. was formed following a management buyout from ICI. The product range expanded and exports increased.

Today the company is in independent ownership, focusing on specialty fertilizers for the agriculture, horticulture and amenity sectors. The product range has expanded still further and the company exports to more than 40 countries across the world. 

Export activity has been so successful that a Queen's Award for Enterprise (International Trade category) was awarded in April 2011.

Solufeed products, both liquid and powder, are manufactured and marketed to the standards of ISO 9001/2008.

Benefits of post-harvest strawberry fertilization.

Some strawberry growers stop applying fertilizer after harvest, but this is a mistake. Depending on soil analysis, growers should continue to feed after picking, and pay particular attention to potassium. This will help ensure vigorous crop growth when the weather improves in the following Spring and in turn improved productivity.

Tips for profitable primrose production.

From around July onwards Growers prepare to take primrose plug plants and grow them on for sale in the winter. They are seen as a cheap and simple “cold” crop to grow. However, every year they manage to cause a fair few problems. Solufeed MD and industry expert Dick Holden shares some tips on how to grow the plants better.

"Fully chelated"? The devil's in the detail.

In today's cost conscious world some growers are attracted by apparently cheaper fertilizer bends. The cost cutting is often down to the supplier using inorganic trace element sources (sulphates) rather than the reliable but dearer chelated (EDTA) versions. However, fertilizers with inorganic trace elements have serious limitations especially in modern growing systems. Limitations that can end up costing more money in the long run than using top quality, fully chelated formulations.
