Helping growers to feed our growing population
In the upcoming decades, growers will be expected to produce exponentially more food to meet the changes of the growing population. Kaolin can help address some of these challenges.
In seed coatings, kaolin is used for increasing seed size to improve handling and plantability. Coated seeds are better protected against adverse field conditions while improving germination.
Spray dried kaolin grades are ideal for use as a diluent/carrier in pesticides. The platey morphology and higher surface area allows for good absorption of the active ingredient.
In urea fertilizer, the addition of Kaolin in the final steps of the manufacturing process can help retain the granular nature of the fertilizer and prevent caking.
