Crop Protection

Western Growers is engaged in the defense of critical crop protection tools and remains active at the federal, state and local levels.  When restrictions are necessary, we work with regulators to ensure they are based on science and that they protect public health without diminishing efficacy in the field. This marriage of science and policy is where Advocacy and Science & Technology units at Western Growers come together for the benefit of our members.
