L. Gobbi has been working for more than sixty years in Italy, having reached a steady position of market leader in the sector of plant growth regulators, foliar fertilisers, chelate meso and microelements, soil conditioners and other products for the agricultural industry, including organic products and biostimulants. For distribution of its L. Gobbi Srl employs a sales network of qualified and professional technical staff, covering the entire Italian territory.

Since the eighties, through direct partnership with the German company E. Gerlach GmbH, it has opened up towards international markets. The exchanges of experiences and knowledge resulted in a great boost to Research and Development activities.
Thanks to this, L. Gobbi has successfully entered into business relationships with several countries, European and extra-European.
The parent company, E. Gerlach – Germany, operates at the highest levels in Europe in the field of pharmaceutical and cosmetic products, playing a leading role especially in the sector of personal care and cosmetics. During the last few years, due to the growing ecological awareness of L. Gobbi’s managers, the company’s research and production have been increasingly oriented towards more friendly products, suitable for use in organic farming (natural products) or – thanks to their low environmental impact – to be used even where it is necessary to comply with the provisions of the integrated use of pesticides (I.P.M.).

Why that “G”?

Because G is a recurrent letter within L. Gobbi srl’s history. You can find “G” in Gobbi, as well as in Genoa, but also in Gerlach and in Germany too … A lot of the products we sell begins by “G”, that is to say the same products resulting from the Italian-German fifty year – cooperation between Gobbi and Gerlach: a combination which means reliability and expertise, as well as a warrant of safety and high quality levels. It is G because we do like to imagine that we can do small “Great” things every day.
