UPL launches Natural Plant Protection unit

UPL is launching a global business unit called Natural Plant Protection (NPP), focussing on biosolutions operations. It’s expected to account for seven per cent of total company revenues. The total market is forecast to grow to US$10 billion by 2025. 


UPL’s portfolio consists of natural and biologically derived agricultural inputs and technologies.


NPP, a stand-alone brand, is expected to play a vital role in addressing farmers’ pain points – including abiotic stress, soil health, residues and resistance management – in developed and developing agricultural markets alike. 


“Canadian growers spend more than CA$50 million on biostimulants for all crops and we are excited to provide leadership as we deliver more technology to the market,” says Trent McCrea, country head, UPL AgroSolutions Canada.
