About what we do
The Crop Protection Association
"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 places.
These include the formulation and manufacture of synthetic and bio pesticides, seed and plant breeding and agricultural biotechnology.
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 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.
