Chemical crop protection research. Methods and challenges
Syngenta Crop Protection AG, Schwarzwaldallee 215,
Chemical crop protection, today a well-established technology to support
sustainable production of food, feed, and fiber, will continue to play
an important role in agribusiness in spite of the emergence of novel
biotechnological solutions. Scientific progress in chemistry, biology,
and molecular biology has revolutionized the way of searching for new
agrochemicals over the past decade. Requirements, primarily in terms
of safety to humans and the environment, have also changed. The search
for and the development of novel agrochemicals with novel modes of action,
improved safety profiles, and adapted to the changing requirement of
the food and feed production chain are more than ever the challenge.
