Successful Fruit And Vegetable Farmers Work Hard To Maximize Their Yields. So Do We.
The term fruit and vegetables covers everything from major crops such as apples, bananas and potatoes to niche crops such as avocadoes, plums and radishes. In 2013, over 640 million tonnes of fruit and 1 billion tonnes of vegetables were grown worldwide. Asia is the largest regional producer of both fruit and vegetables.
As fruit and vegetables are often purchased fresh, farmers need to ensure they are succulent and physically attractive. But this succulence makes them particularly attractive to pests and diseases, which farmers need to protect against while also striving for safe produce with low residues. We support farmers with customized and tailor-made solutions along the crop cycle to meet these diverse challenges.
