Our R&D capacity |



Actionnaires 3PHILAGRO, the R&D capacity of three international agrochemistry groups

For PHILAGRO, innovation is underpinned by Research & Development in new molecules derived from its three Japanese shareholder groups – SUMITOMO CHEMICAL COMPANY, NISSAN CHEMICAL INDUSTRIES and NIHON NOHYAKU – which every year invest 10-12% of their worldwide revenue in R&D.

This commitment, fuelled by an unshakable belief in the future of plant protection products, is central to PHILAGRO’s vision.

Innovation is useful, necessary and essential for developing sustainable, efficient agriculture.
