Notice of completion of coated fertilizer production plant in Taiwan

JNC CORPORATION (head office: Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, CEO & President: Yasuyuki Gotoh) hereby announces the completion of construction of the coated fertilizer production plant of our subsidiary in Taichung City, Taiwan.


JNC Group's core business includes research & development, manufacture and sales of liquid crystal materials and organic EL materials which are essential to a highly information-oriented society. We also regard food, health, energy and environment as important subjects in view of global-scale changes such as the rapid increase in population, progress of aging in advanced nations and global warming.


JCAM AGRI. Co., Ltd. (Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, President: Ichiro Ohira), in charge of the fertilizer business of JNC Group, has completed construction of the first overseas production plant in Taichung City, Taiwan and conducted the completion ceremony on December 9, 2016.  With this plant, we aim to meet the demand for the coated fertilizer which is rapidly increasing in Korea, China and Southeast Asia.  We will work on establishing a stable supply system for the coated fertilizer and expanding sales in overseas markets.


The coated fertilizer is produced by coating the fertilizer component with a coating material containing resin as the main component. This fertilizer can suitably control the release of the fertilizer component according to the growth pattern of the crop.  Therefore, the coated fertilizer can save energy required for fertilization and reduce the environmental load by minimizing flow of the fertilizer component into soil and groundwater.
