Crop protection sales remained strong in 2013
While the growing biological market within crop protection remains a hot topic of discussion, it has been pushed aside by the weed resistance problems that continued to persist in 2013. Consequently, herbicide use rate applications grew 10-20% to combat resistant weeds. According to the report, growers are formulating their own mixtures and looking for new and innovative solutions from manufacturers to target resistant weeds. As a result, manufacturers are developing new formulations with multiple modes of action and products that combine with new herbicide-resistant traits that aim to combat this persistent problem. Strategic alliances and partnerships are being formed for development of these new formulations that can best solve the resistance issue.
