Crop Protection Pipeline

Since 1897, when Herbert H. Dow began to study the effects of chemical products on insects and fungi, we have been innovating in the crop protection industry. We produce solutions that help farmers control invasive pests and improve their yield.

Our pipeline is the best and most diverse in our history. And thanks to our innovation leadership and strong process discipline, we have advanced one new molecule into pre-development for each of the past several years – a trend we expect to see continue into the future.
