Incotec, a market leader in seed enhancement technology, is proud to announce the official opening of a state-of- the-art Innovation Center, dedicated to providing market focused agriculture products and solutions.. The Innovation Center in the Des Moines suburb of Urbandale houses both R&D and Commercial functions. The facility is located at 4725 121st Street, Urbandale, IA 50232.

“The Urbandale Innovation Center provides unmatched access to resources and integrators that are essential to efficiently meeting the needs of our customers,” says Erik-Jan Bartels, Managing Director of Incotec. “The new facility will allow us to provide unique and sustainable solutions on a level not seen before in the North American market.”

Des Moines is in the core of the North American field crop market and close to major customer locations for corn, soybeans, rice, and other field crops. Location advantages include improved customer experience, better presentation of proof of concept products in a professional environment, timely technical support for customers, increased production efficiency and capacity, and the availability of top industry talent.

In May 2018, Incotec opened a completely modernized and automated seed enhancement operation for vegetables in Salinas, California. The facilities feature a new R&D lab and offices, new seed storage warehouse, new production equipment and employee facilities.
