Effective plant protection is essential to productive and sustainable agriculture, but this topic is increasingly giving rise to social and political debate. With the Pflanzenschützer.ch initiative (www.pflanzenschützer.ch), scienceindustries has been involved in the dialogue since 2015.
The public has little awareness of why farmers use plant protection products or the contribution these make to ensuring a reliable supply of healthy, locally produced food.
The website Pflanzenschützer.ch contributes to the public debate surrounding plant protection products with regular, topical articles and pieces providing background information. Topics covered include the benefits of plant protection as well as sustainability, the environment, and wider society. All this serves to highlight the significance of plant protection products for healthy plants, reliable harvests, and food safety.
Pflanzenschützer.ch is a joint initiative involving Swiss plant protection companies and the association scienceindustries.
