Interest levels secure biostimulant brand’s return to Cereals

Marcus Palmer, UK distributor of Algifol, a seaweed biostimulant
Buoyed by a high level of interest, MJP Supplies is returning to Cereals for a second time.

The UK distributor of Algifol said that enquiry levels at last year’s show and subsequent sales of the seaweed-based biostimulant encouraged it to book again for this year's event.

Marcus has been the sole UK importer and distributor of Algifol since 2005. Algifol is a completely natural biostimulant, made from concentrated brown algae, which is gathered from the North Atlantic, dried and refined to maximise its wealth of trace elements, vitamins, enzymes, amino acids, carbohydrates, polyuronides and growth-regulating plant hormones.

"Last year was our first time at Cereals, and we were very pleased with the number of people who showed an interest in Algifol," says Marcus Palmer. "Over the last year, we've seen both enquiries and orders increase, with previous customers and new growers opting to use Algifol on their crops. Biostimulants are increasingly popular as they increase the crops' resistance to heat stress and extreme weather, including rainfall. If this year's weather is anything like what we experienced in 2023, I think all growers will need to give their crops a lot of help, and we will see another rise in interest in Algifol as it is such a cost-effective and proven option."

MJP Supplies offers a range of tanks, rainwater harvesting solutions, garden and landscaping tools, and bird-scaring products in addition to Algifol. For further information, visit Stand 704 at Cereals or
