Agrochemicals Business

To Achieve Our Vision

The agrochemicals business continues to work to solve the problems of farmers through agrochemicals and materials for agriculture use, mainly for fruits and vegetables. Agrochemicals take time to develop. After identifying a new substance through research that is effective against harmful insects, it must go through a process of verifying efficacy and safety on farms, and it therefore takes time to launch a new product. We have therefore set 2030 as the fiscal year for achieving our Vision of the business and established 15.0 billion yen* in net sales as a numerical target. We aim to achieve our Vision through new effective substances and contract manufacturing at our Kashima plant based on overseas sales of FINESAVE®, existing unique formulations, product introductions, and other measures while maintaining existing products.
 We will also expand our product groups to include biostimulants and other materials for agricultural use, pick up the needs of farmers, and build a system of sales and market penetration for reliable delivery of the appropriate products and information in a timely manner. We will engage in unique R&D focused on the future factors such as market, regulations, and environmental response and strive to produce safe, stable products at a low cost, which reduce the negative impact on the environment.
