We improve AG from the ground up.


Catalyzing the future of agriculture.

Elemental Enzymes was founded upon the simple belief that we must do everything we can to improve agricultural performance in a way that not only enables plants to flourish but enriches and renews the planet with eco-friendly and sustainable agricultural solutions.

From products that enable effective enzyme, peptide and protein inputs to foliar treatments that hold the promise to renew entire industries, our focus is to make a positive difference in the world through people – like you and me.

Success is a byproduct of responsible production. That’s why Elemental Enzymes works to bring cross-disciplinary scientists and processes together to create novel solutions to practical problems with a shared goal of helping both the plant and the planet.


Innovate | Respect | Integrity | Deliver

We believe in strong, effective agricultural input solutions that tread lightly on the environment and surrounding ecosystem.
We believe in hard work and practical progress, grounded in science and proven in the field.
We value proactivity and reward curiosity.
We believe there is a solution waiting to be discovered for almost every problem no matter how complex.
We believe the impossible is always possible.

Our products and processes can be grouped into four distinct categories:

1. Disease Prevention & Treatment: These are biochemical pesticide products that work to treat and prevent a broad range of diseases across many crops and can be applied by a number of different delivery methods. These solutions leverage peptides, with direct action to trigger an immune response in the plant. Some examples include Sudden Death Syndrome (SDS) and Asian Soybean Rust in soybean crops and Huanglongbing, also known as HLB or citrus greening disease currently devastating the USA and global citrus industry.

2. Nutrient Efficiency: These are non-pesticidal enzyme products designed to improve plant nutrient uptake by converting unavailable forms of nutrients into forms that the plant can uptake. 

3. Carbon Kickstart: These are another class of non-pesticidal enzyme products that kickstart the native soil microbiota into action. Soil microbes produce enzymes to catalyze key reactions in the soil to provide nutrients to the crop. The Carbon Kickstart class targets 5 different carbon sources in the soil that can be broken down to foster root growth and for use by the native soil microbes.

4. Osmotic Stress Prevention & Remediation: These are naturally occurring biochemical products that work to prevent or reverse osmotic stress in plant cells by increasing water retention and providing protein stabilization. They can be used to supplement other Elemental Enzymes products used in soil and foliar applications for improved crop nutrition and to prevent disease.


We specialize in enzyme, peptide, protein, and biological chemistry solutions
that contribute to plant health, yield and profitability.

This proprietary process significantly improves enzyme, peptide or protein stability and effectiveness while being more cost-effective than
alternative solutions. Read more.

WaterFlux® is an Osmotic Stress Prevention & Remediation. Read more.

Vismax, formerly known as Falcon, is the first truly effective product for Citrus Greening. It is a disease prevention and treatment, also with proven efficacy for Asian Soybean Rust, Sclerotinia, and other crop diseases. Read more.

Res+ is a novel patented technology that kick-starts enzyme activity to significantly improve soil health and fertility. Read more.
