Nufarm and crop.zone launch new alternative for weed control
Australian crop protection and seed technology company Nufarm, in partnership with German AgTech start-up CROP.ZONE, is launching NUCROP, a hybrid electric crop protection solution.The competitive and sustainable alternative for weed control is available now to farmers and contractors in Germany, France, Belgium and the Netherlands through an early adopter program.
NUCROP combines chemical and physical crop protection to create a compelling and sustainable weed control solution: plants are first pre-treated with a conductive and bio-agricultural safe liquid product, then electricity is applied.
In this way, the solution controls weeds highly efficiently and with less energy input than conventional technologies. In the Early Adopters program, Nufarm and CROP.ZONE are working with selected channel partners in Germany, France, Belgium and the Netherlands to give farmers and
contractors access to the new NUCROP technology. In addition to various other crops and applications, the early adopter program is specifically targeting potato siccation in crop year 2021. Other potential applications are currently being investigated
and will be available shortly. NUCROP technology offers growers and contractors a real alternative to proven chemical solutions at competitive prices. This is especially true for crops where chemical crop protection choices have been limited and
replacement solutions are in demand.
