Founded in 1969, American Vanguard is a diversified specialty and agricultural products company that develops and markets crop protection, turf and ornamental products and public health insecticides.
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.
Today, growers of many U.S. crops hire independent professional consultants to manage their product use and only request applications of crop protection products when a problem arises. They also use products that are specific to the pests present. This has led some crops, like cotton, to reduce product applications from 20 or 40 applications per year down to 4 or 5.
