Incotec is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year and an Open Day on Saturday 29 September was part of the celebrations. Between 12.00 and 16.00 hours neighbours, relations, employees and their family and friends were welcome at the Incotec Europe site in Enlhuizen.
During the Open Day visitors were given an impression of what is involved in the treatment of seeds. The world population will grow by 2 billion in the coming years. All these people need healthy food. The space available for agriculture must therefore be used smartly, ideally with seeds with a 100% germination rate and that grow well. Incotec's seed treatment techniques, improve germination, stimulate seed growth and thus increase crop yields.
Innovation is a cornerstone at Incotec. During the Open Day, in the Lab, the techniques were demonstrated behind film coating, encrustation and priming and the application of biologicals. In teh production departments there were demos showing how we make beautiful, uniformly shaped and high-quality seed pellets We look at seeds with X-ray eyes in our X-ray department and in the germination lab we test the maximum germination capacity of a seed lot before and after processing. The marketeers showed some of Incotec's end products, and what their added value is, ultimately, for farmers and growers. In addition to seed enhancement information, there was also music, food trucks and fun for the kids.
