FarmHannong is making a leap forward as a global green bio company
through consistent challenges innovations

R&D Status

Providing green bio solutions
for a more abundant tomorrow

FarmHannong concentrates on strengthened R&D capacities to offer the best products and distinguished farming solutions.
We will continuously expand investments in R&D and contribute to making farming easier and more convenient, and to create a healthier and more abundant world.

Crop protection
We conduct research on convenient and safe highly functional crop protectants. We developed globally competitive active ingredients such as new non-selective herbicide ‘Terrad’or’, Horticultural Insecticide ‘Bistrifluron’, and Rice Herbicide ‘Metamifop’ and we recognized for our technological prowess. Based on our market-leading R&D capacities, we are focusing on strengthening the competitiveness of our existing businesses, while also searching for new business opportunities.
Seed
We are developing high-value breeds with unique traits based on our extensive breeding experience and latest bioengineering technologies. We have developed Korea’s first new functional breeds with disease resistance such as ‘Dangdanghan Watermelon’ that uses genetic male sterility (GMS), the melon necrotic spot virus (MNSV) breed ‘Sonata Power Melon’, and the functional cabbage with high beta-carotene content ‘Beta Fresh Cabbage’. We will continue to take the lead in superior breeds such as disease and pest-resistant functional breeds and high-quality high-yield breeds.
Fertilizer
Our research focuses on special environment-friendly fertilizer optimized to the crop and soil such as CRF (controlled release fertilizer), WSF (water soluble fertilizer), etc. We developed the ‘Sideband at Once’ with 100% nitrogen, phosphoric and potassium coating for the first time in Korea, which is receiving great reviews in the market. We are advancing elution control and biodegradable technologies as we elevate our global business competitiveness in special fertilizer.
