To revolutionise the global seed potato industry with TECHNITUBER® seed technology
Technico is an Agri-Biotech Company which provides supply chain solutions to our global customers by using proprietary technology to deliver early generation seed potato products and a technology platform from which to:
- Implement affordable early field generation seed potato programs
- Reduce seed exposure to soil borne pathogens
- Rapidly introduce new varieties
- Exercise control over a compressed seed supply chain
What Makes Technico Different ?
If you could buy your seed at an affordable price after 2 or 3 field generations (FG-2/FG-3) compared to current industry programs of 6 to 8 (FG-6/FG-8) field generations why wouldn’t you????
Seed accumulates disease and passes it to the next field generation which keeps building up the disease load. Why would you risk multiple field generations and accumulated disease build up when you don’t have to.
By working with clients to improve supply chain performance, Technico is delivering quantifiable benefits including accelerating product time-to-market for new varieties and assisting with the creation of a reliable and cost competitive supply chain in developing countries. In turn Technico’s clients are better able to meet the needs of their customers in the globally competitive food industry.
Central to Technico’s ability to provide optimal supply chain solutions is the company’s ownership of the TECHNITUBER® technology process, providing its partners with access to the very latest advancements in seed potato multiplication and production technology.
Importantly, Technico is realising benefits for all participants in the potato industry, from multinational processors and breeders to large-scale commercial enterprises.
In as little as 2 years, Technico can produce a “Field Ready” seed potato, from TECHNITUBER® seed, in economic volumes and at an affordable price for the commercial farmer. In most cases this eliminates anywhere from 2 to 5 years from the existing seed potato production cycle.
