The Evolution of Belchim

Belchim Crop Protection

Belchim Crop Protection is a Belgian manufacturer and supplier to the European crop protection market. From its origin in Belgium to its position as a major European player in the crop protection industry today, Belchim Crop Protection has shown remarkable growth.. As a company and an innovative product supplier, it has adapted well to the changes in the industry and the changing regulatory environment. Late Managing Director Dirk Putteman founded Belchim in 1987. By the late 1990s he sought and found a strategic partnership with ISK Biosciences and established an international research and development company. This alliance allowed not only a more specialized product portfolio, but also further expansion into Europe. An innovative product portfolio, credibility and reputation are strong assets of Belchim Crop Protection; and above all, the ability to market a product from a strong introduction to a good market coverage in a short time.
