WHO WE ARE

We believe that the sustainability of crop protection needs to be redefined beyond traditional measures and genetic engineering.

We are taking up the challenge to redefine the sustainability of crop protection by creating a smart material which lowers the pesticide waste and reduces their negative impact.

WHAT WE DO

Novioponics developed a slow release system, APonics. APonics is an hydrogel which, once applied on a surface, forms a gel.

Its unique thermo-reversible structure liquefies at low temperatures and forms a gel at higher temperatures. It is a sustainable adjuvant for pesticide mixtures that can reduce the usage of pesticides with 50%. It covers 100% of the surface of the leaves and stem, resulting in zero losses and no dripping.

HOW WE DO IT

Novioponics is founded in 2014 as a spin-off of NovioTech B.V.

Proof of principle is completed in cooperation with the Wageningen University and Research Centre, the Netherlands. Besides several patents are filed on product and application.

Company vision

NovioPonics develops, produces and sells plant protection adjuvants. First focus is the flower market in greenhouses.

Next markets are crops, like fruit and vegetables) in greenhouses, fruits in orchards and crops in open fields.
Next to adjuvants NovioPonics will further investigate other product applications in horticulture such as for hydroponics and plant cell growth. We will work in close collaboration with the Wageningen UR and the horticulture network in the Netherlands and Western Europe.
