Xtrem Biotech is a technology-based company that develops, produces and commercializes biostimulants and pesticides of biological origin to offer respectful and compatible solutions to the environment.

Xtrem Biotech has an exclusive collection of microorganisms and a production plant for the cultivation, formulation and packaging of plant bio-stimulants.

Extreme performance biostimulants

HEROPROTEC MICRO is a product developed by XTREM BIOTECH and HEROGRA ESPECIALES from a selected and patented microorganism (exclusive license of Xtrem Biotech).

HEROPROTEC MICRO is a state-of-the-art biostimulant that promotes the optimal development of the roots and activates the metabolism and the Systemic Induced Resistance (ISR) of the plant, at the same time as it helps to improve the rhizospheric environment and the assimilation of nutrients.

HEROPROTEC MICRO acts from the root activating the energetic metabolism and the natural resistance against soil pathogens. Promotes a good development of the crop from sowing or transplant to the stage of fruiting or vegetation.


The technology on which the company is based comes from the research group on extremophile microorganisms (those that develop under extreme conditions of temperature, pH, salinity, etc.) of the University of Granada.

The company has developed its first biostimulant product based on patented, non-GMO micro-organisms, isolated from natural ecosystems and that have been selected for their ability to stimulate plant growth and protect them from infection.
