Fruits & Vegetables

Traditional Solutions for Growing Fruit and Vegetables Face Significant Challenges

Consumer Demand

Consumers globally are demanding a reduction in the amount of pesticides used to produce crops.

Regulatory Demand

To satisfy public demand, regulatory agencies are significantly restricting or outlawing existing chemistries leaving limited alternatives.

Pest Resistance

The long history of use combined with the restrictions on application rates has resulted in resistant pest populations reducing the performance of existing chemistries.

Organic Production

The explosion in demand for organic produce has resulted in a need for efficacious solutions that are approved for use in organic production as options are currently limited.

The $220 Billion Global Crop Loss Due to Pests and Diseases

  • Each year an estimated 10 to 16 percent of global harvests are lost to plant pests and diseases, at an estimated cost of over USD 220 billion.
  • Pests pathogens and weeds cause the loss of more than 40 percent of the world’s food supply.
  • The problem is compounded by global limitations on pesticide and fertilizer use, specifically in key growing regions in Europe and North America.
