Stewardship

Farmers have a connection to the land that goes beyond economics. At Adama, we believe we have a responsibility to work with growers, regulators and others in our industry to protect the land and resources for future generations. Issues we face today include pollinator safety, pesticide resistance, water quality, and wildlife management. While facing these issues, growers need to produce more to feed an ever-increasing population. Through innovative formulations and product stewardship, Adama helps growers face the challenges ahead.

Pollinator Protection 

Pollinators, such as bees and butterflies, play a vital role in maintaining the health and diversity of our landscape. Pollinator decline is caused by many factors, including pesticide misuse. As good stewards of the land, we work to actively reverse this trend.

Resistance Management 

The best way to manage or prevent resistance is to establish an effective weed control plan and a proactive weed management strategy. Adama’s alternate modes of action help manage resistant weeds with solid control and application flexibility.

Preventing Groundwater Contamination 

Groundwater is vital to supplying U.S. drinking water. Because of the potential risk to human health, pesticide contamination of groundwater is a national topic.

Protecting Endangered Species 

The Endangered Species Protection Program (ESPP) regulates whether pesticide use in a certain geographic area may affect any listed species. All pesticide products that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) determines “may effect” a listed species or its designated critical habitat may be subject to the ESPP.
