Carol Pullen, General Manager Europe, discusses trials results with visitors to the Oro Agri stand at CropTec
“This is the first time that we have exhibited at CropTec and were delighted to have the opportunity to showcase our unique range of products to UK arable farmers,” explained Carol Pullen, General Manager Europe, of ORO AGRI International Ltd. “At the event we profiled our top selling adjuvant product WETCIT®. This product offers a ‘one product does all’ approach providing farmers with the same, if not better, results from using one product instead of the need to use several products to do the same job. WETCIT contains a blend of natural plant-derived extracts with bio-degradable wetting agents the combination of which is collectively known as OROWET technology and is patented worldwide. This technology is unique and differentiates WETCIT from other adjuvants. It gives the product a special mode of action and provides highly effective spread and coverage of pesticide and/or fertilizer spray droplets while optimizing penetrating properties into hard to reach areas of the plant.”
“TRANSFORMER® was another ORO AGRI product highlighted at the show. It is a soil enhancement product that can increase the efficacy of water in soil by improving infiltration with normally just one application per season. Both these products are already available in the UK from Hutchinsons,” said Pullen.
“Our flagship pesticide, PREV-AM®, which was recently shortlisted in the “Best New Biopesticide” category at the prestigious AGROW 2014 Awards, is currently on the market in France and Belgium but we are hoping it will become available in the UK shortly,” said Pullen.
