In a vast and varied region such as Asia, there are unfortunately no one-size-fits-all solutions: growers are best served by seed products developed specifically for their local conditions. At this year's APSA (Asia Pacific Seed Association) congress in Kuala Lumpur (25-29 November), Incotec presents a range of new and well-established seed technologies designed to meet specific needs of growers and farmers all over Asia at a local level. Incotec can be found in stand 27/28 in the exhibition area.
Rob Pronk, Global Marketing Manager: “The seed challenges facing Asia’s growers are as diverse as its countries and the crops grown there. By applying our expertise and experience we develop and adapt solutions to benefit the growers in each specific region. The common factor in all our developments and across all regions of the entire world is our sustainability strategy - we always look for the most sustainable way to help our customers achieve their goals.”
Some of the new products showing in the Incotec stand: an effective and economical film coat for open pollinated crops - Disco AG Red L-144; a film coat that delivers optimal protection for valuable corn seeds - Disco AG Red L-460; and PaddyRise, a treatment developed for rice growers in Malaysia that increases yield and greatly reduces the need for chemicals.
Mission Zero – sustainable to the max! is Incotec’s new strategic direction and embodies an increased commitment to making the company more sustainable. Incotec’s coating technology already contributes to more sustainable agriculture by enabling a reduction in the use of crop protection products of up to 90%. Included in Mission Zero are new initiatives such as developing alternatives to replace microplastics in coatings, working on techniques for the successful application of biologicals and scoping the possibilities for biodegradable coatings.
