How do you think the marriage between biologicals and chemicals?
The pressures on conventional crop protection products have been increasing over many years now. They come both from within the industry, in terms of regulatory issues, and from outside the industry, in the form of demands for chemical residue-free foods from the supermarkets and consumers. In response, a number of major multi-national companies and some smaller ones have started to acquire companies involved in biologicals and biopesticides, together so-called biorationals, over the last five years.
