SUSTAINABILITY / MORE AND BETTER FOOD
The exponential growth of the world population, associated with the prosperity of the populations of the emerging markets, requires a corresponding increase in food production.
According to FAO, agricultural production in 2050 must be 60% higher. Given the limited resources (agricultural area and water), the growth of agricultural production will have to be obtained by increasing productivity, as a result of technological improvements.
A huge challenge for humanity!

MAXIMIZING THE PRODUCTIVE POTENTIAL
The genetic potential of a plant is determined by its DNA and the expression of this potential is influenced by external factors.
These include abiotic factors such as water, light and climate, as well as stress factors caused by poor nutrition, disease, weeds or insect damage.
Within this scenario, appropriate protection, nutrition and biostimulation of crops play a key role.
It is estimated that on average, the farmer exploits only 30% of the genetic potential of the plant and that 50% of agricultural production would be ruined if no crop protection products and nutrients were used.
- Protect, so as not to limit resources
- Nourish, in order to maximize them
