NUCROP is a hybrid electric crop protection solution for desiccation in potatoes. The technology offers a complement or alternative to chemical desiccation or flailing.
All advantages of NUCROP at a glance:
- Residue-free – no waiting times
- Better control of harvest timing: Faster action than chemical treatment
- No negative effects on potato quality
- Can be used in combination with conventional methods
- Aligns with EU Farm to Fork and Climate Strategy targets and regional development goals
This is how NUCROP works
NUCROP was developed by Nufarm together with the Aachen-based agtech startup CROP.ZONE. Through the use of a conductive liquid (Volt.fuel) and electric current (Volt.apply) the treated herb is controlled.
