ADAMA and Ceradis B.V. announced they have entered into an R&D agreement to develop new, innovative and sustainable crop protection products based on ADAMA’s active ingredients and Ceradis’ technology.
ADAMA is one of the world’s leading crop protection companies. Ceradis develops and sells innovative, environmentally friendly products for plant nutrition and crop protection. The agreement’s goal is to deliver new crop protection products to farmers with similar or better efficacy rates and ease of handling, while reducing the required dose rate of active ingredients.
Ceradis is focused on answering one of the biggest challenges facing the crop protection industry: how to provide effective solutions to farmers while ensuring their sustainability through significantly lowering dose rates. Ceradis has developed a very versatile encapsulation platform which has shown great promise in our first trials. I believe we can expect viable commercial products to emerge from our research.” states Willem-Jan Meulemeesters, CEO of Ceradis.
Dr. Elad Shabtai, VP Innovation, Development and Research, and Regulatory Affairs, at ADAMA: “ADAMA is recognized for our highly effective solutions and our strong commitment to providing farmers with simple solutions to their complex problems. We are equally committed to developing products that are sustainable and safe for workers, consumers and the environment. This partnership will allow us to deliver on both of these promises.”
