DuPont Crop Protection serves production agriculture with products for the grain and specialty crop sectors as well as forestry and vegetation management. It includes global herbicide, fungicide and insecticide products and services.
ECPA acts as the ambassador of the crop protection industry in Europe and represents the industry's European regional network. ECPA promotes agricultural technology in the context of sustainable development and, in doing so, seeks to build understanding of the industry’s role, contribution’s, and expand informed dialogue about our views, values and beliefs.
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.
CropLife Conversations - PrecisionAg Institute
Paul Schrimpf Conversation
The second in a series of sit down interviews, Barb Glenn talks with Paul Schrimpf of the PrecisionAg Institute in our new web video. Here Paul talks about the importance of new technologies in agriculture and how growers are quick to adopt new methods to use emerging technologies, including GPS. Paul also mentions that the new technologies make it easier for growers to be agricultural stewards because of the precise measurements and calculations they bring to their daily occupations.
