What challenges do you face?
A rise of >1.5°C in the global temperature is forecasted over the next 30 years. This will have a profound impact on farming and global food production. The loss of earnings to farmers because of this type of harvest loss is currently estimated to be £120m pa in the UK. The average loss is ca £175/ha but this can be alleviated with the application of crop pod sealants. The agricultural industry are seeking a more environmentally friendly way to reduce pod shatter using a degradable technology without generating microplastics.
What solutions do we offer?
Unlike other pod sealants based on polymer film formation, Acticote offers a more environmentally friendly way to reduce pod shatter using a degradable technology without generating microplastics. It works particularly well in maritime climates.
Acticote™ has achieved up to 18% yield increase in oil seed rape over a number of successful field trials.
