Initiatives for Environmentally Friendly Agrochemicals
With the aim of supporting sustainable farming for people and the environment, Kumiai will continue to promote the development of Japanese agriculture while offering peace of mind to Japanese farmers. We are also helping to secure a healthier natural environment for the coming generations.
Using Beneficial Microorganisms
Kumiai makes microbial-based products that are gentle on the environment, offering peace of mind and safety to consumers and farmers.
With a focus on useful microorganisms commonly found in nature, we are making the most of our original technologies to develop our line of Eco Series products. They are safe and have less environmental impact. These agrochemicals comply with the Japanese Agricultural Standards (JAS) for organic agricultural products.
Spray Drift Reduction
We help alleviate drift of agrochemical sprays to surrounding land by designing formulations that resist windborne transport.
This product type features pellets ranging in size from 3 to 8 mm. The pellets float on the water’s surface, spreading the active ingredients evenly across the flooded rice paddy. The formulations include paddy herbicides, insecticides, and fungicides.
Fine Granule Series
This is a drift-reduction formulation. It is used for paddy insecticides and for insecticide/fungicide mixtures.
