Crop Protection: Barriers & Opportunities to Innovation

6 December 2021 14:00-16:10, United Kingdom

Crop Protection remains the cornerstone of cost-effective and secure food production.

Increased awareness of the potential impacts on the environment and human health has led to ever more restrictive regulation and control.

For over 60 years, synthetic chemicals have been a key component in the need to feed our ever-growing population. However, their continued use requires conformity and compliance within an increasingly complex, restrictive and expensive regulatory framework throughout the world.
The Agrochemical industry continues to innovate to meet these challenges.

In this short Webinar, our 4 expert presenters explore not only the barriers but also the opportunities in providing safe and sustainable food using modern agriculture today.
