Fomet Spa has implemented a laboratory for chemical analysis with the purpose of continuously monitoring the section of fertilizer production, succeeding to provide test results quickly. Main functions of FometL@b are:


  • Analysis of incoming raw material;
  • Analysis of finished products for checking its conformity, labelled accordingly to the Law;
  • Analysis regarding environmental control of the company;
  • Research activities designed for study and improvement of fertilizers’ actions on soil and crops:
    - Solubility and friability of finished products;
    - Compatibility of raw material in different blending types;
    - Durability test of indoor products, or in forced conditions;
    - Germination test of substrates fertilized with Fomet Spa products;
    - New formulations test.





There are also analysis carried out continuously (analytical results are reported on a certificate of analysis) on at least 120 samples per month:


  • Total, ammoniacal, organic Nitrogen (N);
  • Total, water-soluble, ammonium citrate Phosphorus (P2O5);
  • Water-soluble Potassium (K2O);
  • Organic carbon (C);
  • Humidity;
  • pH;
  • Salinity/Conductivity;
  • Ashes;
  • Wetting capacity test of matrix;
  • Friability time test of finished products.

Fomet Spa is determined in continuing investment in this work, because FometL@b has contributed greatly to improving of supervision of incoming raw material and outgoing finished products. In 2013 it was purchased an automatic distiller Kjeldahl for the determination of different types of Nitrogen.
FometL@b, which was enlarged in 2015 with the purchase of analytical tools (NIRs/AAS), has initiated cooperation projects with several universities and private organizations of agronomical research, with the purpose to investigate further the action of organic fertilizers on soil-plant system.



In 2020 Fomet Spa opened a new research center of 410, an expansion of the existing FometL@b, whose function is to apply industrial methods and systems on an industrial scale focused on natural and sustainable processes.

CFPN, CENTER FOR PLANT NUTRITION, represents the research & agronomic trial hub of Fomet Spa.
It's located on the outside and adjacent to the plant, it covers a fenced area of 4.800 sq.m. and it overall consists of three related cases:


  • An iron and glass greenhouse of 620 sq.m. divided into two sections. In this regard, new raw material fertilizers, formulations to propose to new markets, confrontation between Fomet Spa products and the opposition ones, shall be tested. Everything for the usage on horticultural flower growing crops potted of different dimensions, seedlings trays. All of it is placed on pallets supported with substrates and fertigation.
  • An area of 450 sq.m. on which have been set up 6 tunnels of 55 sq.m. each, where is practised transplant of horticultural crops and, upon them, test/confrontation of various fertilizers thesis shall be carried out; in this case we work in the field under cover (tunnel).
  • An open-field area of 3.700 sq.m. where are executed tests on horticultural crops transplanted on field without covers and on parcels of extensive crops, such as autumn-winter cereals.

All this is associated with a series of thesis which results in observations of growth and morphology figures; in collection and subsequent analysis of certain quality parameters; in physical/chemical analysis in close collaboration with FOMETL@B.
CFPN is also location of tours of customers, technical communicators.
CFPN is instrument of potential open days to inform customer about progress of Fomet Spa's Research in relation to own suggestions about fertilization and nutrition of fields and crops.
