Cheminova is a manufacturer of fine chemicals, with its main business area within plant protection products. Cheminova has developed a wide range of plant protection products by in-house process and formulation development, and markets its products globally through subsidiaries in 20 key countries and through distribution partners in most other countries.
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.
