Argentina-based King Agro is disrupting the agriculture industry with the unique application of carbon fiber. The company designs and produces carbon fiber spray booms for high-performance agricultural machinery. These booms, which are used to spray crops with fertilizers and chemicals, are different from traditional booms made out of steel. Because they are longer and lighter, carbon fiber spray booms improve productivity and optimize profitability, allowing farmers to cover 50% more spraying area, and substantially reducing working hours and fuel consumption as well as soil compaction. King Agro has sold over 200 pieces of carbon fiber products and in 2014 closed an exclusive 5-year development contract with industry giant, John Deere.
