Exploring an organic crop protection / fertilizer partnership improving farmers welfare

Executive summary

The global food challenge
  • Dutch businessmen Mr. Henk Swanenberg (1937) travelled across the world for most of his life and he gradually started to realize the enormous challenges the next generations are facing: how to keep on feeding the world without further eroding our planet.
  • The world will need to grow 50% more food by 2050 and 90% of this growth will need to come from higher crop yields.
We believe concrete action is the only way
  • He founded an organic crop protection / biostimulant / fertilizer company in Bali that increased the yield for the local farmers in an affordable and sustainable way and brought welfare to local communities.
  • The product is 100% organic and based on the juices of the Aloe Vera plant, seaweed, molasses and other functional micro-organisms.
  • The plantations and the processing plant have been set-up under the guidance of an expert team of agricultural scientists.
  • The capacity of the processing factory is 100,000 liter per day, 10 million liter product is in stock, ready for direct delivery.
  • The company has the intention to expand and build new factories in other regions to secure a cost effective distribution across Indonesia and reach out to all farmers.
increased Crop yields and higher net income for the farmer
  • Farmers have observed a recurring yield improvement of more than 10% (in some case up to 60%) by utilizing the Aloe Vera product for various agriculture and horticulture crops (amongst others rice, soya, fruits & vegetables).
  • Consequently, farmers are able to increase their net income by using the products.
We are excited to Explore a partnership to provide the farmer access to our sustainable inputs
  • Earlier this year the Aloe Vera product obtained approval from the Indonesian authorities to commence sales in the Indonesian market as a biofertilizer. Also the Dutch authorities granted permission to start selling the product as a biostimulant in the Dutch market. The Australian authorities authorized the imports in 2012.
  • The Aloe Vera company would like to start a dialogue exploring how to provide global farmers from all backgrounds access to this sustainable bio-fertilizer/ product.
  • We are convinced that a partnership approach with farmers, regulators, scientists and consumers will build the foundations and infrastructure to further acknowledge the merits of the Aloe Vera product and contribute to the acceleration of roll-out across ASEAN and other global regions to connect with all the farmers.

1. The global food challenge

We need to grow 70% more food by 2050 and 90% of this growth will need to come from higher yields

Population is growing
  • 9.3 bn people feed by 2050 versus 6.9 bn today (+35%)
  • Already 20% more people to feed by 2030
  • Fastest growth in emerging markets, mainly in South East Asia, China, India and Middle East
World is urbanizing
  • 6.3 bn people in urban communities by 2050 versus 3.6 bn today (+ 75%)
  • Demand for edible oil & animal protein will increase as consumption of convenience food is increase
Growing Middle Class
  • 1.2 bn by 2030 versus 0.5 bn today (+ 140%)
  • Demand for animal protein will increase as incomes are rising (grain-based diets are replaced by protein diets)
Increasing BioFuel Mandates
  • Demand for biofuel feed stocks to further increase in Indonesia, US, Brazil, EU, Argentina, Canada and China
  • Over the next decade production of biodiesel to rise by 20% and nearly 25% for ethanol


Incremental Demand Sources Incremental Production
  • The world needs to increase total agricultural production by 70%*
  • 74% animal protein demand growth**
  • 90% production growth will need to come from higher yields and cropping intensity (rotation)
  • 10% from expansion of cultivated farm land

2. Our commitment to support farmers

We understand the daily realities for the farmers

Changes in the operating environment are becoming structural

Productivity Constraints
  • Flattering yield growth
  • Climate changes, pests and diseases
  • Declining arable land per capita as world is further urbanizing
  • Water resource constraints, lack of irrigation, underdeveloped infrastructure to sell, distribute and buy products
Increasing Purchasing Power Buyers
  • Buying power is increasing as global agri commodity traders & processors are consolidating
  • Scale and size in both farming and processing will become important drivers for return on investment
  • Access for farmers to financing will be critical to facilitate and realize production growth
More price volatility
  • More government interventions (export bans, taxes)
  • Biofuel production established link between agri and energy prices
  • Recent over-reaction to changing stock-to-usage ratios reflects concerns about future supply potential
Increasing global trade
  • Production surplus regions will need to supply high demand growth regions with production deficits
  • Trading between key crop regions (Americas, Black Sea, Africa, Asia) and demand regions (Asia, Middle East) will significantly increase and competition for farmers will increase subsequently
  • Access for farmers to global markets will potentially provide attractive sales and price opportunities
Sustainable farming
  • Yield per hectare will need to increase to secure self-sufficiency and increase agricultural production globally
  • Farmers will need to contribute by growing their crops in a environmentally and economically conscious way
  • Organic products that increase the yield and raise income will provide the right incentives for the farmers to apply and utilize these type of product at a large scale across a variety of crops

We are ready to support all asean and global farmers

Establish partnership to increase crop yields and raise farmers’ income in a sustainable way

The factory and plantation Aloe Vera crop protection / bio stimulant / fertilizer
  • The Aloe Vera company has a brand new factory and Aloe Vera plantation in Blahbatu, South West Bali designed and engineered by agricultural experts from Holland, Indonesia and Australia.
  • The factory is capable of producing and supplying 100,000 liters of organic crop protection / biostimulant / fertilizer products per day.
  • Currently, there is 10 million liter in stock, ready for direct delivery.
  • The Aloe Vera product is sourced from its own plantations and from contracted farmers in Bali.
  • The company has a very strong and long term commitment to the local farmers and communities and is providing local employement for up to 300 local people.

  • The liquid product is 100% organic and based on the juices of the Aloe Vera plant (80%), seaweed, molasses and other functional micro-organisms.
  • It improves plant resistance to environmental changes (heat, drought) and pathogen (pest, diseases, for example pest control against Aphid).
  • It stimulates plant growth (vegetative) and generative growth, improves soil fertility and the yield & quality of crops.
  • It improves the efficiency of fertilizers use (inorganic fertilizer).
  • The products can be used for all food crops, horticulture, plantation and perennial crops and ornamental plants.
  • Product is used as a substitute of chemicals, reducing usage of chemicals by 50% or as complement to chemicals fertilizers.
  • The price per liter is USD 7.8, usage is 10 – 20 liter per hectare/year
R&D and sales license    Partnership
  • The product has been intensively tested since 2005 on a range of crops (rice, soya), vegetables (tomato, unions, peppers), fruits, plants, different soil types and climate conditions in Indonesia and the Netherlands.
  • These trials showed significant yield increase, for example the rice trial results, as follows:
    •   ”….significant improvement of rice roots (lateral and hairs) and shoots growth…and yield increase…”
  • Farmers feedback, as follows:
    • “…reduce Bird, Flying Fox (bat) and Insect attacks on crops and fruit trees…easy to use and cost-effective…”
  • The product obtained formal approval from the authorities in The Netherlands, Indonesia and Australia for sales in the domestic market.

  • Topics for introductory dialogue:
      Overview and function
    • Distribution structure to farmers
    • Organization & set-up of input purchasing and financing for farmers
    • Providing training, sharing knowledge, share test results & farmers feedback of product usage
    • Support for Farmers to implement bio crop protection / biostimulant / fertilizers strategy with farmers.
