Why our bags are best

By acting as the interface between plant science and nonwoven technology, we aim to deliver to our customers economic gains and superior genetic results by committing to continually improve our products through investing heavily in R&D.

Our innovative new ideas are evidence based and thoroughly tested. An increasing body of published research, conducted over six continents, demonstrates the efficacy of our products, in pollen control and cost effectiveness through higher seed count, lower contamination and reduced risk.
