Abiotic stress mitigation in onions

Changing climates mean higher temperatures, periods of drought and higher salinity are becoming an increasing problem for farmers. 

To mitigate the impact of these abiotic stresses on certain crops, our seed enhancement business, Incotec, developed a microplasticfree, bio-based and fully degradable new seed treatment. Trials demonstrated improved germination under stress conditions, and up to 10% increase in crop yield has been realised, shown through customer field trials of bunching onions in Mexico.
