Growcentia came to life when three soil microbiologists from Colorado State University asked themselves a simple question: How do we use science to unleash the power of nature? Since 2015, Growcentia has been the answer.
Today, our biotech products are used by growers on four continents – delivering healthier plants, increased yields, and enhanced quality.
