There are numerous compelling needs facing our industry today. Of these, two needs that we believe are of utmost importance are:
The need to provide MORE FOOD WITH LIMITED ARABLE LAND
With a growing global population, the need for food increases while the arable land supply remains constant, or even decreases. Because of this, we need to obtain greater yields from existing farmland.
Crop protection products, which are known to increase yields by 50 to 80%, are more crucial now than ever before to maximize yield and quality of nutritious food.
The need for NEW WAYS TO DEVELOP CROP PROTECTION PRODUCTS
The time and cost required to launch new products is steadily increasing.
The need for new crop protection products, and for greater efficiencies in developing these products, is driven by a combination of regulatory pressure and shifts in weed and pest biology, plus the appearance of new pests.
