microplastic-free seed coatings offer a chance to improve sustainability in agriculture


The sustainable development goals set out by the United Nations to shape sustainable development globally play a key part in formulating our own sustainability strategy. Incotec, Crop Protection and Plant Impact - Croda’s three agricultural businesses - collectively use smart science to maximise land productivity, by increasing yield and resilience, whilst protecting soil health and biodiversity. Croda has worked with independent partners to validate the importance and relevance of the SDGs for both its whole business and its Crop Care footprint.

Incotec is committed to developing sustainable seed solutions. We always look for the most sustainable way to help customers achieve their goals.
