Japan Crop Protection Association(JCPA) is the non-profit organization of Japanese manufacturers, formulators and distributors of agricultural crop protection products. Representing more than 90 companies, JCPA members manufacture, sell and distribute 95% or more of such chemicals.
Crop plants must compete with 30,000 species of weeds, 3,000 species of nematodes and 10,000 species of plant-eating insects. Despite the use of modern crop protection products, 20-40% of potential food production is still lost every year to pests. An adequate, reliable food supply cannot be guaranteed without the use of crop protection products.
