NUCROP is a hybrid electric crop protection solution for desiccation in potatoes. The technology offers a complement or alternative to chemical desiccation or flailing.
You can experience the NUCROP technology live during Europe’s leading trade fair for potatoes, PotatoEurope 2022 in Rittergut Bockerode near Hanover, Germany. Nufarm will present NUCROP at stand E33 on 7 and 8 September 2022.
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.
