Crop Protection Facts

Although the world population has doubled in the last 40 years, the area of land devoted to food production has remained virtually constant; crop protection products have enabled farmers to produce higher yields of their crops on less land. In fact, U.S. farmers provide 18% of the world’s food supply on only 10% of the world’s farmland.

On Thursday, February 25, 2010 CropLife America (CLA), the nation’s leading organization for the crop protection industry, released the results of a major study on the discovery, development and registration of new products designed to support modern agricultural production and fight pests and disease around the world. Conducted by agribusiness consultant Phillips McDougall and commissioned by CLA and the European Crop Protection Association (ECPA), the far-reaching report shows an increase of nearly 40% since 2000 in the private investment required to develop and launch these products. Leading global agrochemical companies participated in the study, providing information on the research and regulatory activity required to bring a new crop protection product to market.
