Ingevity’s Nuchar® AG activated carbon technology enhances crop yield and health


NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C., March 4, 2021 – The benefits of Ingevity’s (NYSE: NGVT) Nuchar® AG activated carbon technology for grass farming applications are highlighted in a recently released video about the herbicide formulation Valley Agronomics supplies to farmers to improve crop yield and health. Nuchar AG’s superior adsorption of excess herbicide protects seedlings during planting, while the product’s ability to stay in suspension longer leads to more efficient application.

Valley Agronomics has leveraged the expertise of a respected agricultural research firm to test the efficacy of multiple activated carbons in the products they supply to farms across Oregon’s Willamette Valley, among other regions. Nuchar AG has been found to outperform other activated carbons, helping Valley Agronomics remain a trusted supplier and enabling farmers to plant with confidence each growing season.

“Farming crews spraying formulas that include Nuchar AG experience faster, simpler application and these fields demonstrate up to 85% less crop injury,” said Dennis Roth, vice president, Western region, at Valley Agronomics. “Even one look at fields using Nuchar AG shows grass that is fuller and more vibrant than the rest.”
