CropLife International is a global federation representing the plant science industry. CLI addresses international developments in the area of crop protection (pesticides), biotechnology (GMOs) and sustainable agriculture. CLI is committed to the safe and responsible use of the industry's products in order to provide safe and abundant food as well as other benefits back to the consumer.
Currently in the U.S., 2 million acres of farmland are devoted to growing rice. Without crop protection products, it would take twice as many acres to provide the same supply.
