    I think the worst scenario for any farmer is to have invested money, time and resources in producing a crop and then being told that he can’t sell it because he used plant protection products that are not accepted in importing countries. The problem is not new but it is getting worse with every day that Science advances in simpler and faster detection methods. The world knows that and has therefore begun to solve the problem in 1994 under the leadership of the OECD. All tools needed to remove non-tariff trade-barriers based on pesticide residues or on the lack of proper plant protection products are in place. But these tools are useless to all farmers, processors, exporters, plant protection companies and governments that do not know them or do not know how to use them.

    We travel the world to change that. In a 3-day workshop we train up to 60 people in the use of these tools so that they can fill the gap that only they can fill in the overall process. It is like a motor: if you take one wheel out the motor won’t run.

    We have already been to over 25 countries. Please, talk to us.

    Best regards,

    Imme

    Good to know.

    We would definitely like to learn more about plant protect as you have elaborated.

    Thanks, Imme.
