Our Vision

Tomorrow’s farming is about balancing natural resources and human needs. Arable farmers around the world are facing a rapid decline of legally allowed chemical crop protection products. On the other hand there is a strong growth in demand of vegetable food, partly to substitute meat. That’s why arable farmers increasingly focus on healthy soil, strong crops and responsible care. In this movement towards balanced farming, alternative ways of weed control plays a key role.
