Advanced Biological Marketing Inc., Incotec Group B.V. Join Forces On Agricultural Innoculant And Seed Coating

Advanced Biological Marketing, Inc., (ABM) based in Van Wert, OH, and Incotec Group B.V. based in Enkhuizen, The Netherlands, announced May 22, 2014 that they have come to an agreement in which Incotec will combine ABM’s yield enhancing inoculants with Incotec’s seed coating and enhancement technologies.

Incotec will have marketing rights to the seed industry of ABM products in the USA, Europe, India and South America.

ABM is a developer and manufacturer of agricultural inoculants that increase yields and improve farm productivity. Additives that are part of this agreement include SabrEx, a formulation of carefully selected, proprietary biological fungi strains called Trichoderma for use on corn, cotton, wheat and cereals, Excalibre-SA, a proprietary blend of three strains of yield-enhancing Rhizobia bacteria plus Trichoderma for use on soybeans and Excalibur Gold an international product for rice.

Incotec is an international company, actively involved in the improvement of high quality seeds (and other vegetative genetic materials). Incotec’s technologies include upgrading, priming, disinfection, film coating, pelleting, encrusting, and application of active and additive materials to protect seed from disease and/or stimulate growth. Inoctec also provides a range of analytical quality tests.

Dan Custis, CEO of ABM states, “We are excited to partner with Incotec to help increase yields and profitability for farmers worldwide. Incotec products enhance and improve seed and that’s a great match with our product line. This partnership adds value and convenience in a sustainable way. That is our mission in all we do. It is an excellent opportunity to expand our market share not only in the U.S., but around the globe.”

JanWillem Breukink, senior executive member of the Board of Incotec, says: “We are very happy that ABM has chosen us as the preferred partner for the application of their innovative products to seeds. Incotec is offering a completely independent application platform where companies like ABM can work with Incotec to make sure that it is a quality process that is used to apply their products to seeds. In most cases these are applied in combination with other commonly used seed-applied products. We believe that ABM’s products will add value to seeds in many parts of the world to support growers in getting the best out of their crop.”
