We all have a responsibility to the environment whilst balancing the demands of productivity. We provide a comprehensive environmental data package for the approval of new crop protection active substance. Investment in the studies that make up this part of the regulatory dossier costs in the region of £22 million*
We are hands on, and our farms at Chishill and Great Shelford are two of the eight Linking Enviroment And Farming (LEAF) Innovation Centres. These facilitate sustainable farming innovation and ongoing knowledge exchange.
When it comes to handling waste from crop protection products in an efficient and compliant way, hundreds of farms all over Europe use Phytobac®. This system has been evaluated by Catchment Sensitive Farming on behalf of DEFRA in the UK.
These are just some of the ways we ensure that the future of British and Irish farming is at the heart of everything we do.
