Microplastics in seed treatment
There is growing global concern on the topic of microplastics in seed treatment, with countless publications in both the scientific community and general press. Although seed treatment accounts for only a small fraction of microplastics in the environment, our industry will have to play its part in reducing the environmental impact of microplastics.
At Incotec we are prepared. As part of Mission Zero, our sustainability strategy, we are developing a new range of microplastic-free products. We apply the same high-quality standards to our microplastic-free seed solutions as we do to our existing products and make sure that none of the features of advanced seed treatment are lost. All of our products need to be safe for seed, safe for the environment and safe for people. They need to have good abrasion resistance and provide maximum benefit from the actives, biologicals, additives and nutrients. And they need to be easy to apply and process.
