CNH acquires minority stake in Zasso

CNH Industrial has completed its acquisition of a minority stake in Zasso Group AG, a global specialist in non-chemical weed and invasive plant management solutions using electrical power.

With this transaction, CNH Industrial aims to further strengthen the product portfolio of AGXTEND, the company’s accelerator for tech startups.

Chemical-free weed control

Zasso’s patented Electroherb solutions enable targeted, chemical-free weed control using an electrical current. This technology can also be employed in urban weed management situations.

According to CNH, Electroherb is as effective and efficient as standard chemical herbicides, does not have to contend with growing developed plant chemical resistance and delivers social and environmental benefits.
