  • Film coating of seeds – Benefits and challenges  

    2017-05-09

    As populations grow and competition for fertile land increases, agronomists are continually challenged with producing more food with fewer resources. Since 1968, Incotec has contributed to sustainable agriculture by providing innovative technologies that boost the yield of seeds. With the recent acquisition of Incotec by Croda, a speciality chemical manufacturer, an even broader and more innovative portfolio of seed enhancement products becomes available to customers. Incotec’s film coating is a good illustration of a technology initially applied to vegetable seeds, for which the knowledge and experience have progressively been extended during the last 10 years to tackle the specific challenges of large volume field crops.
