Sustainability That Meets the Demands of Consumers and Farmers
Good food is fundamental to good living. Food nourishes us in so many ways, fueling our bodies and connecting us to one another. Because food is so central to how we live, people around the world want – and need – quality, healthy food that’s responsibly grown, readily available, and affordable year-round. Every year, demand increases. And every year, as much as 40 percent of our food supply is lost to pests.
Whether it’s organic, non-organic, local or imported, farmers are on the front lines of producing the food to meet this demand, fighting to keep threats like pests at bay while maintaining a delicate environmental balance in the field.
Corteva Agriscience supports farmers in that fight with important discoveries, including innovations that led to the development of Qalcova™ active (spinosad) and Jemvelva™ active (spinetoram), two EPA Green Chemistry Award-winning active ingredients made from naturally occurring soil bacteria. In more than 100 countries, Qalcova and Jemvelva protect more than 250 crops, including the fruits and vegetables we all count on to add nutrition and variety to our plates.
