About us

Incotec is the seed enhancement specialist. We specialise in improving the quality of seed through seed technology. The global population will increase by 2 billion in the coming years. With all these people needing healthy food, and the area of land for cultivation decreasing, we have to be smart about how we use that space, with 100% of seeds germinating and growing strongly so that there is no waste of valuable ground or harvest. The seed enhancement work we do, contributes significantly to the development of sustainable agriculture. Our seed enhancement techniques improve germination, stimulate the healthy development of seeds and seedlings and increase crop yield. With research and production facilities worldwide, our solutions support the huge efforts of seed companies, breeders, growers and farmers around the globe.

Innovative technology

Incotec has various innovative technologies that improve the resilience and performance of seeds. These range from cleaning, upgrading and priming (pre-germination) to pelleting, film coating and encrusting. We have a great deal of knowledge not only in the field of biology and physiology (the seed), but in technique and formulations too. That is what makes us the experts in combining the living seed with different coatings and other products such as plant protection products and nutrients.
