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.
CropLife Africa Middle East, a member of CropLife International, represents the plant science industry and a network of national associations in 30 countries in Africa and the Middle East. The "Plant Science Industry" includes manufacturers and distributors of crop protection products (pesticides) seeds and biotechnology products.
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.
