#22: American Elements Assists Univar in Developing Next Generation Crop Additives


The Challenge

Profit margins in agriculture are often razor thin. Weather, commodity prices, pestilence and any number of unanticipated events can wipe out a year of hard work and investment. That’s why any edge can make a difference and its why we work to keep our customers at the cutting edge of crop additives which can often make the key difference.

The Innovation

When Univar initiated a program to develop a next generation crop additive they immediately turned to American Elements to produce compounds and blends of compounds for testing.

The Result

Project testing lead to development of a unique and successful product utilizing proprietary combinations of American Elements manufactured zinc nitrate, cobalt nitrate, copper nitrate, and ammonium molybdate.
