About what we do
THE CROP PROTECTION
Safeguarding our Food Supply and Quality of Life
The Crop Protection Association
(CPA) is a key voice of the UK Plant Science Industry. We promote
the role of modern plant science in safeguarding our food supply
from seed to shelf.
Our members are involved in the development and manufacture of a
wide range of plant science technologies which are of crucial
importance to the cultivation and protection of food crops,
protecting our gardens, woodlands, infrastructure and public
These include the formulation and manufacture of synthetic and
bio pesticides, seed and plant breeding, agricultural biotechnology
and the breeding of bees.
Our strength comes from our ability to combine the industry's
expertise and skills to analyse and address key issues.
We are committed to explaining the role of the Crop Protection
industry in these sectors and the benefits of its products to the
community. This includes engaging in constructive and
intensive dialogue with relevant stakeholders to ensure that these
benefits are fully recognised and accepted.
