Atessa (Ch), 4 December 2019 - Valagro, a leading company in the production and marketing of biostimulants and other specialty nutrients for crops, presents the new MC Extra in a microgranular formulation.

MC Extra is a biostimulant based on extracts from the Ascophyllum nodosum seaweed, which can support balanced plant growth in order to maximize the quantity and quality of crops.

The new MC Extra expands the offer of innovative and sustainable solutions produced by Valagro's research. While the production of MC Extra has been carried out entirely in Norway to date, from 2020 onwards it will involve the use of cutting-edge technologies located in the Atessa production plant.

MC Extra will feature the same chemical characteristics as the current formulation, but with an improved physical shape, moving on from microscales to microgranules, which guarantees a more rapid solubility compared to the microscale version of the product.

In fact, the greater porosity of the microgranules allows water to spread inside the particles quicker, and to dissolve the product faster. In this way, Valagro guarantees farmers MC Extra's established effectiveness, but in a more manageable formulation.

Rita Basile, Product Manager at Valagro:

The new MC Extra is a collaboration between the Marketing, Sales, Global Research and Operations departments. This collaboration has allowed us to capitalize on our deep knowledge of the Norwegian raw material, while benefitting from the technological-productive know-how available to us in Italy. The result is an innovative solution that combines well-established effectiveness with even better solubility to meet the demands of farmers, with the attention that Valagro has always paid to its customers and their needs."
