Whether you are producing for your home market or export markets, EU and US regulations are increasingly defining the global standard when it comes to chemical residues in agricultural and horticultural crops. And the bottom line is that only no or very limited amounts of chemical residues are acceptable.
At the same time, growers need to safeguard their crops against the ever-present threat of pests, diseases and stress. But just spraying more chemicals is no longer an option – for financial reasons as well as to comply with human and environmental health chemical-residue standards. So farmers need other solutions.
