All aspects of the crop protection industry are regulated –
production, manufacturing, distribution and usage instructions. Products are comprehensively tested and evaluated before being approved for registration and sale.
To register a product for use in a specific country we must demonstrate it meets the regulatory standards of that country, that it is safe for workers to use, and that it has no adverse effects on the environment, crops, or the food that will eventually be produced.
Generally, more than 100 studies are needed. Regulatory authorities evaluate our data over two to four years.
