Croda is a world leader in offering high performance adjuvants and formulation aids for the crop protection industry. Croda’s unique formulation expertise helps crop protection customers get the best performance out of their active ingredients, enabling farmers to get the best yields out for their crops.
In addition to this, Croda invest heavily in developing their expertise in an effort to become efficient partners in all areas of crop care, which was recently exemplified with the acquisition of Incotec, a seed enhancement business. Boasting strong technical and R&D departments in all of the markets that they serve, Croda develop innovative and novel products that contribute positively to the environment and society throughout their lifecycle.
Croda is increasingly engaging with its customers to help them make more informed choices, and deliver the sustainable products and benefits that their consumers demand. Examples of this include a major new facility at the Atlas Point site in Delaware, USA that will enable Croda to produce 100% sustainable non-ionic surfactants to the agrochemicals sector and the recently commissioned wind tunnel for customer collaboration projects in assessment of pesticide spray quality.
Commenting on Croda’s involvement, head of Challenge Advisory’s Agri-business, Dr. Aubrey Longmore noted: “Having discussed at length the ideas and insights of the agriculture sector at Croda, we are satisfied that they can translate their deep expertise, versatility and technological prowess to Latin America, and provide Brazilian agriculture with the knowledge and technology it requires to thrive under increased global pressure.
