We’re excited to announce that we’re expanding our transparency commitments in 2020. Having already enabled access to our crop protection safety studies, we are now taking our transparency efforts one step further with the launch of OpenLabs. Under this brand-new program, set to take place in the second quarter of 2020, we’ll be opening up the doors to our site in Monheim, Germany, as we welcome visitors to our labs and fields. Before our products can be sold on the market, our scientists carry out extensive research and evaluation to ensure they are safe when used as directed. See our science in action – and dive into the safety procedures behind it. Learn more about OpenLabs and how to apply.
