Innovation Challenges for the European Agbiotech Industry
Metadata[+] Show full item record
The European seed and pesticide industries have gone through a period of great turmoil in the last decade of the twentieth century. Restructuring processes have been thoroughly influenced by the developments in plant biotechnology. Also changes in the consumer market for food products and changes in government policies have led producers of plant protection products (PPPs) and producers of seeds to reconsider their innovation activities. The agrochemical companies are the main drivers behind the integration of pesticides, biotechnology, and seeds.
