Revitalising ecosystems, improving biodiversity and creating social and economic benefits for local communities.
Incotec, our seed enhancement specialist, and Land Life Company are collaborating in a pioneering project to accelerate global reforestation. This involves integrating Incotec microplastic free smart coating technologies onto tree seeds, supporting scale up of reforestation efforts. These specialist coatings boost germination, increase resilience and survival, and enhance overall performance, and this is the first time such technologies have been applied to large-scale reforestation projects. The first seeds are being introduced at sites in Northern Spain, with the emphasis on planting where trees are needed most, revitalising ecosystems, improving biodiversity and creating social and economic benefits for local communities. Pending the outcome of this first trial it is expected that tens of thousands of pelleted tree seeds will be planted in different locations all over Europe starting in 2022.
