First registered in 1946, Solufeed was the brand name of a single ICI fertiliser for the then infant hydroponics industry. The Solufeed brand now embraces hundreds of products sold throughout the world. Products with a reputation for quality, reliability and value and the choice for today's discerning Farmer or Grower.
In the early 1940's the then Imperial Chemical Industries (ICI)
Ltd built experimental glasshouses in the grounds of its
headquarters at Fernhurst, close to Haslemere in Surrey,
England. Here pioneering research into the nutrition of
hydroponic crops and especially NFT (Nutrient Film Technique) took
From this research came Solufeed 'F' ('F' for Fernhurst) the
very first complete hydroponics feed - still sold today!
Later came Solufeed 'H' ('H' for Haslemere) a two component feed
specially formulated for tomatoes.
In 1990 Solufeed Ltd. was formed following a management buyout
from ICI. The product range expanded and exports increased.
Today the company is in independent ownership, focussing on
speciality fertilizers for the agriculture, horticulture and
amenity sectors. The product range has expanded still further and
the company exports to more than 40 countries across the world as
well as supporting a strong domestic market.
Solufeed products, both liquid and powder, are manufactured to
the standards of ISO 9001/2008.
