The company was established in 1979 and named as ILPA. We started business activity in the fields of seeds, tree-nursery, pesticides. In 1983, as a company producing and marketing the highest quantity of saplings in Turkey, we exported apple and pear saplings to foreign countries such as Libya and Syria.
After 1984, ILPA was reorganized as İLPAŞ under the status of a joint stock company and became Marmara and Thrace distributor of pesticides in cities and rural areas. Between 1984 and 1991, İLPAŞ was the distributor of Rhone Ploulenc which is a French company. İLPAŞ has also been the distributor of seeds of some domestic corporations.
ILPAŞ had been the distributor of agricultural products of Cynamid (USA) for many years. Then, BASF The Chemical Company (Germany) has included Cynamid in its corporation and we have become the distributor of BASF Turk company which has been importing and selling the products of BASF at the beginning in 30 provinces and now in the half of Turkey.
In 1993, we have entered the macro and micro elements world, cooperating with Phosyn company (English) to deal with the lack of plant nutrition in Turkey. We aimed to increase the production and quality. So, we have nearly prepared a map of Turkey demonstrating the plant nutrition substances in the soil. Thousands of soil samples were collected and sent to England. All trace elements were analyzed and the structure of agricultural areas in our country were demonstrated with respect to nutritional substances. In 2000, this research was presented in the seminars organized by the Agricultural Ministry in the Agricultural Directorates in the provinces. The results of the research was given to the Agricultural Directorates in a file.
In 2001, with a new vision İLPAŞ has got the certificate of raising and selling seeds and started selling seeds in Turkey. We have supplied 20 types of seeds to the market. The seeds are sold in Turkey under the trademark of PEPSEED and they have high performance as domestic products.
We have started to work as the Marmara-Thrace-Black Sea Regions importer and exclusive distributor of micronutrients and fertilizers of COMPO GmbH & Co. KG (Germany) company which is a leading company in the world in plant nutrition and research and development of it has been carried on by BASF (Germany).
