The importance of agri-chemicals to support productive agriculture shouldn’t be under-estimated, and exciting advances are being made in the developments of novel solutions for crop protection, soil enhancement and plant stimulants. With potential regulatory uncertainties for some current management solutions, the pressing need to develop to effective, environmentally acceptable crop management chemistries continues.

This Pollinator will be an opportunity to hear first-hand about the pipeline of innovative new chemistries being made available to growers, as well as providing an opportunity to understand more about the process of researching and developing new solutions.

Representatives from large and small developers of novel solutions will be showcasing agri-chemicals for soil improvement, crop protection, integrated pest management, as well as a novel formulation for nitrogen application.
