22 February 2022, Australia: German agtech start-up CROP.ZONE, Australian crop protection specialist Nufarm, and Dutch equipment provider Kamps de Wild are happy to announce an exclusive cooperation in the field of innovative, hybrid electric dessication, in which Kamps de Wild BV will act as the exclusive machine sales and support partner for NUCROP in the Netherlands.
Developed by German agtech start-up CROP.ZONE and brought to farmers across Europe in cooperation with Australian crop protection specialist Nufarm, the hybrid electric desiccation solution uses a conductive liquid (VOLT.fuel) and electric power (VOLT.apply) to dehydrate and dry out the plants.
From this year on, Kamps de Wild will be the exclusive sales and support provider of the VOLT.apply system in the Netherlands, while Nufarm will be responsible for selling Volt.fuel through its Dutch channel partners in crop protection. After a very successful groundbreaker programme in 2021, the NUCROP solution will be launched in the Netherlands in 2022, focusing on potato desiccation, with weed control being the next step.
DIRK VANDENHIRTZ, CEO of CROP.ZONE, says: “We are delighted to have found a strategic partner with more than 100 years of experience in farm equipment and a strong relationship with growers. We are very much looking forward to working with the Kamps de Wild team.”
