Protecting crops from pests and nourishing plants
with fertilizers to preserve sustainable land is an essential component of ensuring the West can protect its carbon-reducing farmland.
Farmland in the Western United States provides massive open spaces that protect the environment.
California’s farmland alone represent 40,000 square miles of undeveloped land
Fertilizers enhance the health of plants
resulting in more sustainable lands through less soil erosion and clearing of natural wildlife habitats.
Respecting our land, air and water
Without a healthy planet, there can be no healthy food.
WPH member companies understand this essential link between social responsibility and environmental stewardship with the ability to sustain a healthy food supply.
That’s why we spend more than seven years, on average, to develope and gain approval for our crop protection tools.
It’s why our products are designed to nourish plants and sustain the soil with nutrients.
It’s why we focus only on eradicating harmful pests and diseases -- while protecting beneficial species in the agricultural environment.
It’s why we advocate for responsible applications that limit drift into our air.
And it is why we promote programs that educate farmers about how to avoid runoff and leaching to surface or ground waters as a way to prevent pollution.
WPH’s commitment and dedication to stewardship is second to none.
