Incotec/Elsoms further seed treatment deal
Dutch seed coating firm Incotec (Enkhuizen) and UK seed company Elsoms (Spalding, Lincolnshire) have agreed to expand their previous collaboration through promotion, marketing and sales of additional seed treatment and seed enhancement services, such as priming and disinfection, in the UK. The two companies have been partnering for over six years and Elsoms has been pelleting and treating carrot, onion and parsnip seeds in the UK market under licence from Incotec. The latest agreement is not restricted to vegetables and the companies will also explore opportunities in arable and ornamental crops. Elsoms cites its recent investments in seed treatment equipment as confirmation of its desire for further expansion of seed enhancement activities.
