It is in small laboratories in Anderlecht that Fyteko has developed a biostimulant capable of strengthening the resistance of plants to drought. The product, baptized Nurspray, first attracted distant countries, notably Argentina and Ukraine. But in recent months, it has interested more and more European players. This natural product indeed responds to the demand for greening agriculture and Fyteko now has two great references: it is included among the 1,000 solutions of the Solar Impulse foundation and it has been selected (with attractive funding at stake) by the European Innovation Council Accelerator, which rewards the most innovative European start-ups. Fyteko does not want to cut corners, however. “Our job is to develop biomolecules, recalls Guillaume Wegria, CEO and founder of Fyteko with Juan Carlos Cabrera. We do not sell directly, we work with partners for our commercial developments.” The Sumi-Agro group opened doors for it in France and it is now the Belgian Janssen Pharmaceutical, via its subsidiary focused on agriculture Janssen PMP, which will try to establish Fyteko’s Nurspray in a series of countries, in Europe and elsewhere. These good prospects encourage Fyteko to consider the next step, namely the construction of a production plant in order to be able to meet the growing demand for its natural biostimulants. “I hope we can do this in Belgium, it would be great to make our contribution to the reindustrialisation of the country”, confides Guillaume Wegria. The company, supported by Essenscia’s Innovation Fund, should raise funds in 2023 to finance its industrial development.
