Mitsui Chemicals, a global leader in chemical production, has shown its support for the Australian vegetable industry through entering into a Strategic Partnership with AUSVEG.

As well as world-leading chemical production, Mitsui has recently announced an expansion into a new business area: sustainable crop cultivation. To significantly enhance natural plant growth, Mitsui’s proprietary iCAST system supplies liquified nutrients through tubes to a special planting bed that retains inputs and ensures crops can absorb nutrients and air as needed for optimal growth and quality.

Through this partnership Mitsui is supporting AUSVEG’s work on behalf of Australian vegetable growers and the broader vegetable industry, and it will be taking part in Hort Connections 2018. For more information on Mitsui Chemicals, see the Mitsui website, or read its press release announcing the iCAST system.
