    Goals / Remit

    The Association aims to advance research and development of crop protection solutions in Europe and encourage public policies based on science, creating the conditions to bring these tools that protect plant health to the market. The Association also promotes sustainable farming practices and the responsible use of crop protection solutions. The Association promotes the complementarity of its members’ crop solutions, including conventional crop protection, biologicals (derived from nature), agri biotech and digital & precision agri technologies, for an integrated approach to crop protection that supports a wide range of farming production systems (e.g.: conventional, conservation, organic, integrated, agroecological, vertical etc.) for the sustainable production of safe quality food, one that safeguards the environment and human health. The Association pursues a mainly scientific goal through the scientific study and analysis of all fields of interest to the crop solution industries.
