Online since 14 hours

IG Future Crop Protection launches the "We work for crop protection" awareness campaign, in which members highlight the challenges of crop protection to produce high quality foods and ornamentals.

The aim of the campaign is to raise awareness of what producers are already doing in the field of crop protection and innovations that will further reduce risks in the future, writes IG Zukunft Pflanzenschutz in a statement. The context of the campaign was the producers' belief that progress was needed on plant protection.

Under zukunft-pflanzenschutz.ch, you will find practical examples of how plants are protected from bad weather, weeds and natural enemies. On social networks, consumers can get tips to help them reduce food waste. GI would require close cooperation between producers, processors, retailers and consumers in crop protection.

The Interessengemeinschaft (IG) Zukunft Pflanzenschutz unites producers, processors and consumers. Their goal is to respond to new concerns about crop protection and to develop concrete solutions. These are intended to help further reduce the risk of pesticides to humans and the environment. The IG was founded on January 9, 2019 by the Swiss Vegetable Growers' Association (VSGP), the Swiss Fruit Association (SOV), JardinSuisse, the Swiss Association of Delicatessens (scfa) and swisspatat. The Swiss Consumer Forum kf is the spokesperson for the IG with consumers. The IG Zukunft Pflanzenschutz is open to other members who share the desire to further develop the topic of crop protection.
