We provide a wide range of products to protect crops from pests and diseases and produce good harvests. We also focus on developing earth-friendly plant protection methods such as those using pheromones.
Promoting Stable Food Supply and Environment-friendly Agriculture
The world population, which is currently about 7 billion, is expected to continue to increase, particularly in developing countries, and to exceed 9 billion by 2050. On the other hand, the world’s cultivated acreage has remained approximately the same, and is unlikely to increase dramatically in the future. The global balance of the supply and demand for food is thus likely to become increasingly tighter in the mid- to long-term.
Under these circumstances, as a trading company specialized in agricultural production materials, we are working hard to help increase food production by providing various services on a global scale, based on our wealth of knowledge mainly on crop protection products. We collect data and search for products through our own network and that of the Sumitomo Corporation Group; develop and register products in each country; offer technological diffusion and support services for safe and appropriate use of products; and perform many other activities to assist customers in every aspect of agricultural production.
