Planning approved for growth at UK crop science company

Lancashire-based Levity CropScience, one of the UK’s Crop Science companies, has recently received planning approval for its new Crop Science Research Centre in Woodplumpton. They will now be able to grow crops under research conditions and discover ways to make them grow better.

Levity’s products help growers throughout the world produce larger and more resilient yields across crops such as potatoes, strawberries, avocados, bananas, oranges, wheat, rice, and tomatoes. The crops become more resilient due to Levity’s research-backed fertilisers and the company has seen significant growth in sales in its rapidly expanding export markets.

David Marks, the co-managing director, Levity CropScience, said: “We are delighted to receive planning permission for this seven-figure investment, for three large research greenhouses and three research laboratories in one block plus the conversion of the old 17th century barn into our Head Office, modern offices and a much-needed space for showcasing our technology to farmers and customers.

“Once completed, this facility will be world-class and the best smart fertiliser research facility in Europe for developing more advanced fertiliser products, which will be used throughout the world.

“Our products are now distributed in North America, South America, Africa, Far East, Middle East, and Australasia. A fantastic Northern Powerhouse success story.”
