THE MACROECONOMIC SCENARIO

Why to invest in agrochemicals.

Macroeconomic scenario
The world’s population is seven billion people, of which 900 thousand are facing hunger everyday. In 2050 there will be nine billion people on the planet and the demand for food will increase, while it is estimated that the available arable per capita land will be half of the current.
Investing in crop protection products
The technical equipment for agriculture first of all crop protection products and fertilizers, will still be the only solution for sustainable and productive agriculture, and for the marketing of agricultural produce which is healthy and safe for the consumer.
Future
According to international agencies and organizations, without agrochemicals more than 40% of current global agricultural production would be lost. There will be more and more need to nourish, protect and treat the crops with the agricultural fertilizers and crop protection products.
Thanks to the strict regulations now all over the world, agrochemicals on the market must meet a safe toxicological and eco-toxicological profile and respect the health of the consumer, the user and the environment.
Analysts agree that the food commodities are a profitable investment if achieved in the long term and with a good diversification, even if subject to unpredictable factors as climate or economic as the cost of energy and transport.
