Nufarm/Micap extend micro-encapsulation deal:
Nufarm has extended by six months its option to evaluate micro-encapsulation technology from the UK company, Micap (Wigan, Greater Manchester), for agrochemicals (Agrow No 500, p 3). Trials on a number of crops are under way in several European countries, Micap points out. Nufarm has agreed to make its first milestone payment under the deal, reflecting progress to date, Micap adds. Nufarm has an exclusive option to evaluate and license the yeast-based micro-encapsulation technology.
