Planting the seeds of digital tools and technological advancements for agriculture

Digital and technological advancements in agriculture are rapidly evolving with the introduction of cutting-edge equipment and materials designed to secure and increase crop yield. Digital tools that enable monitoring of farm operations, coupled with analytics, are proving especially valuable in detecting stressors, such as disease or water scarcity. With the collection of comprehensive business data, digital tools can be used to apply analytics that assist in optimizing operations, while advances in Information Technology can aid in automating the production process. Along with digital tools, innovation in materials such as agricultural films is enabling farmers to optimize yields, even in the harshest growing environments.

    Agricultural films, particularly those used in greenhouses, help provide a consistent growing environment while optimizing the use of resources such as water and protecting crops against exposure to extreme weather conditions. 

    With over 35 years of experience stabilizing plastics for the agricultural market, Solvay has a wide range of UV light stabilizers and other polymer additives designed to protect the integrity of plastic films in various agricultural applications, including greenhouse coverings, mulch film, shade nets, and silage wrap.

     

    Products to enhance the performance of agricultural films exposed to the most challenging environments

    • CYASORB CYNERGY SOLUTIONS® is a range of additives designed to protect against UV, thermal and chemical degradation of polymers in agricultural applications such as greenhouse and tunnel films.
    • CYASORB THT® is a range of UV light stabilizers that offers superior UV protection for greenhouse film covers exposed to various chemicals.   
    • CYANOX® is a range of antioxidants that protects polyolefins against oxidative degradation, which extends the service life of agricultural plastics under high or moderate temperature conditions and improves the weatherability of UV-stabilized systems.


    Solutions for equipment disinfection

    Cleaning and disinfecting exposed surfaces helps prevent pathogens to potentially slip through and decrease disease spread. What's the best way to do it? PROXITANE® and INTEROX® for farm equipment disinfection provide quick biodegradability with no toxic residue.
