The concept of Plant Health Products was initiated in 1998 by Professor Mark Laing and Dr Mike Morris. It was a union of the knowledge and expertise of these two experienced scientists that led to the formation of the company.  

PHP’s strong scientific basis, unique production and formulation methods, and rigorous quality control have ensured the successful growth of the company into the international arena. Continuing development of new products, production methods and facilities will ensure PHP’s success into the future
