BROTOMAX® is an energy rich nutrient which is easily absorbed by leaves, branches, and roots, with upward/downward systemic activity that enabling sap to move around inside the plant, and so generating a balance between the above-ground part and the roots.
It enhances one of the essential plant cycles: the shikimic acid pathway (the cycle inhibited by glyphosate-based herbicides). This cycle controls the synthesis of major groups of metabolites. BROTOMAX® increases synthesis in polyphenols, a group of metabolites key to plant life and plant defence mechanisms.
BROTOMAX® does not directly introduce polyphenols, but has an impact on the biochemical modulation of the polyphenolic compounds,, leaving nature to regulate and balance its activity. Polyphenols promote the growth of phytoalexins, which are a plant’s natural self-defence substances against biotic and abiotic agents.
Respects beneficial fauna.
No waste, no safety period.
Particularly suited for crops in any of the certified production programmes (Integrated Production, GlobalGap, etc.)

BROTOMAX® increases the content of antioxidants and modulates the proportion of polyphenols in olives
In addition to their high content of healthy fatty acids (mono and polyunsaturated), the fruits of olive trees and their derivative virgin oils, have an added value for health due to their antioxidant compound content, which prevent the effects of ageing and cardiovascular diseases. Within the antioxidant compounds of olives, polyphenols are the most abundant, […]
Autumnal BROTOMAX® treatment to regulate the following year’s flowering in lower-yield citrus varieties
Certain varieties of citrus plants present high flowering levels which do not subsequently lead to larger fruit yields, and thus require autumnal treatments to correct the issue. BROTOMAX® provides easily-absorbed, high-energy nutrients leading to more balanced vegetative and flower development, equating to better flower differentiation. This makes BROTOMAX® the perfect product to apply in autumn […]
BROTOMAX® induces defence mechanisms
BROTOMAX® boosts one of the fundamental cycles of plants, that of shikimic acid, which is responsible for the synthesis of important groups of metabolites among which are polyphenols, which are very important for the life of plants and their defence mechanisms. BROTOMAX® does not directly introduce polyphenols to the plant, but influences their biochemical modulation, […]
