The roots of Rhizopon are in Amsterdam at the Amsterdam Quinine Factory (ACF) in the thirties were the first products were developed. The products were mainly used for the own needs of ACF for the propagation of the quinine plant.

The first Rhizopon products were introduced in the Boskoop nurseries area in 1940. These products opened the possibilities towards a large vegetative propagation through cuttings.

Following a reorganization of ACF in 1987, the activities of the growth regulators became independent. Rhizopon bv was founded. The new company had no link with the former parent company. What remained was still reserved: the large amount of knowledge about the use of rooting hormones.

Meanwhile, propagation by cuttings is the main vegetative propagation method and a conservative estimate brings us worldwide over 56 billion cuttings per year.
