The company has a strong focus on sustainability so will particularly be looking forward to seeing what new innovations and environmental entries are submitted for the awards.

“Accelerating agricultural innovation is essential to sustainably meeting the nutrition and energy needs of a growing population and rapidly changing economies. So too is utilising technology that has vastly improved agricultural productivity in recent decades that has helped feed billions, such as crop protection products,” a company spokesman announced.
