Research & Development
Getting it right at the start
The aim of our R&D programs is to develop new products and improve the impact and safety of older products through better formulation, packaging and delivery. Advantages in technology focus on meeting sustainable development objectives as well as improving crop yields. We develop products that are biologically efficient, environmentally safe, user friendly and economically viable. This all requires time and considerable effort and investment. To bring a new product to the market takes eight to ten years and costs around £148 million.
