Agrochemical Trade Shows
The agrochemical business is developing a greater range of products formulated to help produce safer food to meet the demands in today’s hungry nation. New approaches can allow farmers to improve harvests, protect crops from pests, diseases, and take advantage of the newest inventions in molecular genetics.
This year, several changes are bound to happen all because of the following reasons:
There is rising demands on food resources causing shortages, and so costs are likewise being increased. This can be linked to the growing population and climate change; the latter has been linked to around 170 M cases of undernourishment.
Key trend for 2013
Proposed initially by Monsanto, many agrochemical companies spent billions into the development and improvement of seed technology. It has transformed the way in which important crops like soy are being grown in major parts of the world. The adoption of this new technology by farmers, which is still a topic of debate in European countries, has been proven to yield a significant percentage of gains and other benefits which are clearly measurable.
The use of seed technology is the focus now, together with the proprietary chemical products that are keeping agrochemical companies on top as compared with their generic counterparts.
Agrochemical trade shows are expected to discuss more about seed technology and other approaches that may involve genetic studies. The goal is to make both the companies and the public aware of these new discoveries, how it is done, how it can help solve the shortage problem, and how safe it is for human consumption.
Although more studies are still being required to perfect this technique, hopefully, these advances will soon be good enough to keep pace with the fast increasing world population and food demands.
