For The Dow Chemical Company (Dow) customers in the agriculture market segment, basics are leading the way to a more profitable and environmentally friendly future.
Advances in polyethylene technology for agricultural films have reduced the need for chemical fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides. Agricultural films improve crop quality and increase the crop yield. The advantages of polyethylene films over competing materials (such as wood chips, straw, mulch, cloth, burlap, and fiberglass) include lower costs, increased profitability, and environmental stability.
Innovation leads to growth. Because Dow invests so much into new product development (a full two-thirds of the Corporate R&D budget) Dow is continually expanding into new agricultural market segments to better meet your needs. Dow technology is the seed for better agricultural film solutions.
