Levity Crop Science has taken its first orders from several countries including Columbia, Peru, Argentina, in South America, Kenya, South Africa and Zimbabwe and Estonia in Europe.

The Bilsborrow firm’s products help growers particularly in arid areas and with difficult growth conditions to produce larger, more resilient yields in such crops as potatoes , green beans, avocados, bananas, coffee, cotton and flowers.

David Marks, co-managing director, said: “This superb increase in our export sales is directly attributable to the time and effort we have devoted over the last few years to field trials; undertaking numerous country visits and lecture tours, signing up new distributors and launching our award- winning products in many new countries.
