Seed enhancement company Incotec has three new products which will be launched later this month. The introductions are an innovative film coat for corn and one for sunflower seed, as well as a major development in the company’s proprietary X-ray upgrading technology. In-depth information on the products will be available in stand 615-616 at the trades exhibition at the annual ISF-congress in Brisbane, Australia on 3-6 June.
DISCO AG RED L-460 FOR CORN
This new film coat delivers optimal protection for corn, safer working conditions during processing and a cosmetically attractive product. The film coat, developed in close cooperation with the Croda R&D team, will initially be launched in Europe and Latin America. It specifically targets corn-related challenges including dust and abrasion.
DISCO AG BLUE L-570 FOR SUNFLOWER
The L-570 is a vivacious light blue film coat with properties built into it that will speed up processing time and increase efficiency. The coated seeds flow easily through equipment allowing highly accurate positioning of seeds at planting which results in optimal spacing for healthy plant growth.
X-RAY EXPRESS UPGRADING
Incotec’s X-ray upgrading technology is a highly accurate method of significantly increasing the quality of a seed lot. Incotec has been working with this technology for many years and has recently made remarkable progress and can now offer X-ray upgrading with a significantly reduced turn-around time.
By observing traits and characteristics of every seed embryo, any seeds with aberrations can be detected and separated from top quality ones. The process is flexible and can be adjusted to meet the customers required percentage of usable plants.
