Balchem Plant Nutrition

With over five decades of experience, Balchem is the innovator and global leader for chelated mineral plant nutrients. Our first foliar applied formulations, utilizing Albion chelate technology, were made commercially available in 1976. Since their introduction, the Metalosate product portfolio has expanded and improvements have been made along the way, resulting in grower satisfaction world-wide.

Balchem sales representatives are certified agronomists and horticulturalists, giving them the background to understand your needs and provide optimal service. Selling in over 50 countries worldwide, we use a host of local distributors who sell directly to commercial growers.


Powered by Albion Technology

The Metalosate® product range utilizes Albion amino acid chelate technology and delivers mineral nutrients faster and more efficiently where the plants need it the most. As a result, the farmer/grower gets healthier crops that are more resistant to disease and pests, larger yields, and healthier food for the consumer with an extended shelf life for products being shipped long distances.

Our Markets

Balchem’s Metalosate products are used to deliver the right mineral nutrients to a variety of plants, including field crops, vegetables, tree and vine crops, ornamental trees, organic and other plant species. The Metalosate product portfolio also provides solutions for the Organic market.
