Acadian BioSwitch Technology

At the heart of our success is our passion for innovation. The focus of our research efforts has been to consistently provide sustainable, cost-effective and easy-to-use solutions that help our customers succeed. With Acadian BioSwitch technology, we have perfected a proprietary extraction process that liberates unique bioactive compounds present in Ascophyllum nodosum marine plants. Ascophyllum nodosum is the most researched and the most beneficial species used in agriculture because of its unique biochemical composition. The proprietary extraction process also creates many new bioactive compounds that further enrich the final product.

The Acadian BioSwitch technology logo is the Acadian Plant Health stamp of approval for quality and product performance.

Acadian BioSwitch technology enhances natural processes within plants by switching on gene expression and production of active compounds that stimulate plant growth and protect against stresses. It helps crops overcome today’s most critical growing challenges such as drought, chill, heat and salinity. The results are reduced risk, improved crop quality and maximum yield for a greater return on investment.

Proven Efficacy in the Field

Acadian Plant Health employs in-market agronomists, Market Development Scientists and technical Key Account Managers in more than nine countries. These specialized professionals continually interact with in-market scientists, agronomists, dealers and growers to share technical expertise. Our expert staff, our customers and our research partners help us conduct hundreds of company-funded and co-operative field trials on a wide variety of crops. This helps us prove to growers that our products work in their particular growing conditions and allows the design of best use recommendations targeted to the grower’s specific field conditions and crops.


Protecting and properly managing natural resources is of prime importance to Acadian Plant Health™. Decades of research have proven that, properly managed, marine plants are a rapidly renewable resource. Acadian Plant Health™ harvests the marine plants in a manner that preserves the holdfast (root) to ensure regeneration of the plant. The sustainability of the resource is achieved through our world-renowned scientific management program that combines sophisticated aerial, drone and satellite photography with extensive ground truthing.


All APH™ products are fully water soluble and compatible with most crop inputs. We recommend using them to enhance all integrated crop management programs. Acadian’s agricultural products include brands such as Acadian® and Stimplex® with additional innovative product development to address specific growing challenges.
