Although many aspects of the plant science industry have evolved since our organization was first established in 1952, our main purpose remains the same — to advance the collective interests of the agricultural industry in Canada.

With pesticides and modern plant breeding, the plant science industry makes significant social, economic and environmental contributions. Our organization’s primary focus is on providing tools to help farmers be more productive and more sustainable, but we also develop products for use in a wide range of non-agricultural settings, including urban green spaces, public health settings and transportation corridors.

Our primary goals include:

  • Increasing awareness, understanding and acceptance of the benefits, safety and sustainability of plant science innovations
  • Securing legislation, regulation and policy that ensure product safety, and encourage industry innovation and sound science
  • Being world-leaders in lifecycle stewardship of plant science innovations
  • Forging and leading alliances with stakeholder groups to help achieve the industry’s vision and sound public policy

CropLife Canada is part of the CropLife International consortium, a global federation with members across 91 countries that champions agricultural innovations in crop protection and plant biotechnology
