Brandon - Helping Growers Since 1998
Brandon Bioscience has been helping growers increase the yield potential of their crops since its foundation. 000’s of farmers in more than 36 countries worldwide choose our agronomic solutions to unleash the yield potential of their crops.
We pride ourselves on being a progressive, research intensive biotechnology company. This is reflected in our product range which has been developed using our PSI technology platform.
Located in Co. Kerry in the south of Ireland, the most westerly point in Europe, we are situated close to an abundant supply of natural marine resources.
Brandon has been REACH registered since May 2013.We are the first & currently only Irish REACH registered manufacturer of Ascophyllum nodosum extract. See more about REACH registration here.
Brandon is also founding member of EBIC – the European Biostimulants Industry Council. As a member of EBIC, we strive to grow responsible awareness of biostimulants amongst growers & consumers whilst working to protect the reputation & integrity of the sector.

Addressing The Challenges Facing Agriculture Today
Global climate change continues to threaten food production and its supply, through changing patterns of rainfall, increasing incidence of extreme weather and changing distribution of diseases. Such climatic events have a real impact on crop yields. In fact it is estimated that between 50 & 82% of yield loss is due to such stress.
Along with the impact of climate change on agriculture, the world’s population is predicted to grow by 50% to 9 billion by 2050, putting extra pressure on global food supply. In order to meet this increased demand, the USDA (United States Dept. of Agriculture), estimates that the farm yields need to increase by an incredible 60% from the present figures.
Traditional grower practices and fertiliser solutions alone are not sufficient to handle this added demand for food & to tackle the current gap in yields.
New sustainable technologies such as those offered by Brandon are helping to address the issues that farmers face in growing high quality crops allowing them to sustainably deliver increased yields from the limited resources available.
Everything we do is focused on delivering agronomic solutions that perform where it matters most – in the field.
