CropLife Europe represents sustainable crop protection solutions: innovative and science-based, our solutions keep crops healthy and contribute to providing Europeans with a safe, affordable, healthy, and sustainable food supply.

We promote modern farming practices and champion the use of innovation and technology for a more sustainable model of agriculture.

Our members provide a wide variety of innovative farm solutions:

  • Our members are market leading companies that develop and supply pesticides and biopesticides to organic, conservation (low till, no till), agroforestry and conventional agriculture models.
  • Our members invest in precision applications, which enable delivery of the minimum amount of product, at the right place, at the right time.
  • Our members look for future plant biotech traits that will enable crops to thrive in difficult conditions or provide greater benefit in people’s diets.

Seta Relation

Through our stewardship projects, CropLife Europe seeks to demonstrate our commitment to the safe and sustainable use of pesticides.  TOPPS Water Protection is the continuation of a well-established series of projects dedicated to reducing pollution from agricultural inputs by encouraging the uptake of best management practices (BMPs) for water protection. TOPPS projects are multi-stakeholder projects, which collaborate with local partner organizations to provide skills ranging from science to on-farm advice.

Furthermore, each year CropLife Europe provides a platform for discussion and dialogue on important topics at its Regulatory Conference with several hundred experts and stakeholders from all over Europe. CropLife Europe’s network of National Associations and member companies is an important means to increase the uptake of new technology and innovation to foster sustainable agriculture across Europe.
