WE HELP FARMERS GROW QUALITY

Short story about First-Tree
Prior to founding First-Tree, its founding father developed a solution containing nano-size nitrogen bubbles which appeared to stimulate growth and flowering of plants. Since the solution had to be made fresh on site using a large pressure vessel, to turn this into a viable business was a challenge to say the least. This prompted the quest for a product having similar growth stimulating effects as the bubble solution, during that period we got into contact with a professor in Austria who had more than 20 years of research experience with various plant extracts having just those properties. From there on and on the basis of a technology exchange, a strong working relationship was established that served to improve our understanding of the material we are still working with.

Our first pilot was with a farmer in Wieringerwerf, the Netherlands on a small patch with tulips where, after lifting and sorting the bulbs, we observed a jump in size. Those results opened many doors including that of G. Geerlings en Zonen B.V. (now Dümmen-Orange) where we treated a couple of beds of Calla tubers. Based on the results all first year Calla tubers are now treated with the GOOD FOR GREENS® plant growth regulator.
