SABIC took part in the 36th International Trade Exhibition for Agriculture, Water and Agro-Industry in Riyadh during 8-11 October 2017, showcasing its range of innovative, environment friendly agri-nutrient products that help improve yields and create nutrients that are more targeted and effective.

The SABIC stand at the exhibition highlighted a new series of agri-nutrient products that are customised to the specific needs of each crop, such as water-soluble fertilisers, to provide farmers with sustainable, cost-efficient and water-efficient nutrient input resulting in higher crop yields. An example is the NPK fertiliser grade, which is designed specifically to improve both quality and yield of date palms.

SABIC also displayed its wide portfolio of polymer products that offer sustainable agriculture solutions.

Commenting on SABIC’s participation, Anas Kentab, executive vice president, Agri-Nutrients, said, “This exhibition was an opportunity for us to convey the message that we are not merely a supplier of commodity fertilisers, but are using technologically advanced research to develop specialty nutrients. We are committed to sustainable agriculture by creating new products that offer significant advantages to farmers. I would say that this is another example of ‘Chemistry that Matters’ driving new solutions.”

SABIC also highlighted the ambitious goals of the Estidamah Agriculture Research Center which it has established in Riyadh for the Ministry of Environment, Water, and Agriculture. The Center will focus on developing new technologies for sustainable agriculture industries, including finding innovative ways to reduce water use, while increasing production and food quality.

Some 350 local and international participants took part in the exhibition, which was held with the support of the Ministry of Agriculture, Saudi Arabia.
