Weeds compete with crops for sunlight and nutrients and left uncontrolled can destroy crop yield. Herbicides are an important tool used by growers to control weeds but the emergence of weeds that are resistant to herbicides and new weed problems caused by global climate change threaten the effectiveness of these important tools.
New herbicides, and in particular new modes-of-action, are needed to counteract these threats. Enko’s herbicide program is focused on delivering the effective and safe products that growers need.
This underground threat is difficult for farmers to identify and causes over $100 billion of damage to global agriculture each year.
On top of resistance problems facing growers globally, changing environmental conditions have caused a shift in insects’ life cycles and the environments they inhabit, resulting in a growing threat to agricultural production.
