the crop.zone hybrid herbicide team is ramping up production. thanks to our partners fenaco and Nufarm we are able to provide an organic alternative to farmers to get their crops harvest-ready. Nucrop represents the next step forward in alternative crop protection
NUCROP is being developed by Nufarm and CROP.ZONE. It is based on a unique hybrid herbicide concept that combines a conductive liquid called Volt.fuel with electro-physical weeding. This technology is an alternative and complementary solution to chemical-based weed control. Application of Volt.fuel allows for optimised, safer electrical energy management as it uses much less power than other electric weeding technologies and raises agronomic efficacy.
Initially, NUCROP will focus on potato desiccation in Germany, France, the UK, and Benelux in 2021. We will be expanding the range of applications (greening control, weed control) and our geographic scope to include other countries from 2022 onwards. In bringing this solution to market, our aim is to reduce the rising pressure on farmers due to the phase-out of ever-more chemical herbicides and the need to replace them effectively – without compromising on product quality or climate protection and while conserving soil life and quality. We intend to launch NUCROP at prices that are competitive with current alternatives, enabling us to achieve fast growth.
