    Farmers shoulder a lot of responsibility. They manage their businesses in a complex, uncertain environment. And what they produce is weightier than widgets. We all rely on their success: to feed us, clothe us and keep farmland healthy for the next generation.
    It’s a long way from our chemistry labs to a farm, but the work that is done in those labs helps farmers to solve real problems, season after season. The basic question for farming professionals is: how can I maximize my yields, while ensuring that I produce in a sustainable way? Our crop protection products play an important role.
    A lot of factors can decimate yields: unfavourable weather, insects, imported weeds and resistance to an important fungicide. When we think about a new product or service, we try to keep all of this in mind. Talking with our field agronomists about day-to-day farm management challenges helps our scientists develop better products. How, for example, can FCAD technology originally developed for builders or diaper manufacturers help farmers perform even better?
    On this Internet site, we invite you – agriculture professionals and anyone else interested in the role of crop protection in farming – to discover how we see our contribution. We also invite you to explore all of the other ways that pesticides help us live better lives: in urban pest control, in the fight against malaria and other insect-borne diseases, in forestland management…

    Innovation Optimizes Agricultural Production

     

    R&D Strategy: The Key to Innovation

    Developing new products is time-consuming and expensive. That’s because every new product has to both safely and effectively control weeds, insects or diseases.
    It can take quite a long time to turn an interesting molecule into a product that farmers can use. What’s more, there are no guarantees. A potential product can fail at any point along the way. But this is our business. We provide farmers with a steady stream of the latest and most effective tools to help them maximize yields on limited farmland. Over time, nature can outwit even our smartest products. That’s why we have to spend so much time and energy looking for new scientific discoveries. Our track record in bringing new tools to the market speaks for itself.
    We’re constantly looking for new active ingredients that can control crop pests in unique ways. This comprehensive approach to research allows us to offer growers a complete toolkit of different but complementary approaches to pest control. But active ingredients are only half of the story. We can also rely on the diverse nature of FCAD’s chemical activities to develop innovative formulations and complementary products that enhance the effectiveness, safety and convenience of our crop protection products.
    Our scientists use the latest technologies and analytical techniques such as computer-based molecular modelling, genetic profiling and mass spectrometry. And if our scientists can’t find what they need, they design and build it themselves.
    Indeed, our global teams of scientists – molecular biologists, agronomists, engineers and chemists – share their knowledge and expertise with each other every day. As a result, we’ve been able to automate many routine research activities. This means our scientists have time to do what they’re best at: designing and developing products, programs and, of course, active ingredients.
    The research and development process does not stop when the product reaches our customers. The knowledgeable and well-practiced hands of farmers give our products the ultimate test. That’s why we are constantly talking to farmers to hear about their opinions and experiences with our products. These messages from the farmers are then feedback to our scientists, so that we can both improve existing products and develop new ones, so that innovative, effective solutions remain the core of our business for a long time to come.

    Balance: A Clearer View of Agricultural Sustainability

    Balance is a method to measure and assess sustainability in agriculture. It follows a comprehensive approach: Balance evaluates the sustainability performance of agricultural products or processes across all three pillars: economy, environment and society.
    Based on our long experience with analysis, we at FCAD have developed balance way to improve the fact based understanding of the situation on the ground, drive innovative and sustainable solutions for our customers and detect progress in sustainable agriculture.
    With balance way, FCAD wants to contribute to essential questions such as:
    What are key sustainability drivers for any given agricultural production system?
    Which conditions negatively impacting sustainability in agriculture?
    How to make production systems more sustainable?

    Herbicide Name Use
    Paraquat Paraquat is used as a quaternary ammonium herbicide, one of the most widely used herbicides in the world. It is quick-acting, non-selective, and kills green plant tissue on contact. It is redistributed within the plant, but does not harm mature bark. Herbicides are used to protect crops by controlling a wide range of annual and certain perennial weeds that would otherwise compete with the crop for water, nutrients, and light.
    Diquat Diquat is a contact herbicide that produces desiccation and defoliation most often available as the dibromide, diquat dibromide.Brand names for this formulation include Aquacide, Dextrone, Preeglone, Deiquat, Detrone, Reglone, Reglon, Reglox, Ortho-Diquat, Weedtrine-D,Weedol 2 and, in combination with glyphosate, Resolva.
    Diquat is a non-selective herbicide that acts quickly to damage only those parts of the plant to which it is applied.It has been used in pre-harvest crop desiccation.It bonds strongly to mineral and organic particles in soil and water where it remains without significant degradation for years.
    Insecticide Name Use
    Chlorpyrifos Chlorpyrifos is a crystalline organophosphate insecticide. It is known by many trade names (see table), including Dursban and Lorsban. It acts on the nervous system of insects by inhibiting acetylcholinesterase and remains “one of the most widely used organophosphate insecticides”, according to the United States Environmental.
    Imidacloprid Imidacloprid is currently the most widely used insecticide in the world. It is sold under many names for many uses; it can be applied by soil injection, tree injection, application to the skin of the plant, broadcast foliar, ground application as a granular or liquid formulation, or as a pesticide-coated seed treatment.Imidacloprid is widely used for pest control in agriculture. Other uses include application to foundations to prevent termite damage, pest control for gardens and turf, treatment of domestic pets to control fleas,protection of trees from boring insects, and in preservative treatment of some types of lumber products

    Innovation Inspiration

    We find effective inspiration from market dynamics, consumer taste, emotions and clients’ needs by:
    LOOKING INTO THE FUTURE: Accurate anticipation is key in today’s fast moving markets. Our Creative Marketing teams are dedicated to observing the emotional evolution of society, allowing us to capture what’s inside tomorrow’s consumption patterns. This provides us with more creative depth, additional innovation dimensions and gives significant value to our flavor submissions and our clients’ products.
    INTEGRATING SENSES AND EMOTIONS: Taste is strongly linked to the four other senses, so to understand the big picture we can’t just focus on taste and smell. Observing and understanding the many ways senses and emotions influence the complete consumption process allows us to choose the best flavor solutions in terms of taste, sensations and texture.
    OBSERVING CONSUMER LIFESTYLES AND DRIVERS: Observing consumers is fascinating! Our approach is the result of a complementary observation of consumer lifestyles and drivers. Confronting both the essence of demographics and what fuels consumption growth allows us to have a more complete picture to respond precisely to complex consumer needs.
    UNDERSTANDING FLAVOR AND MARKET TRENDS: The quest to understand consumer taste is intimately linked with the evolution of macro-trends and consumer trends and drivers. Our teams have developed an observation system capable of defining up-coming, declining and favorite flavors for selected markets, categories and regions.

    Flavor Creativity

    To do so, our people seek, develop and create the elements that allow us to be both present today, and ahead of our time.
    RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT: Our teams benefit from the annual reinvestment into the research and development of new molecules and technologies. This demonstrates not only our global commitment to R&D and our leadership in science for flavors, but also our strong research philosophy and passion for scientific discoveries and exploration.
    GLOBAL PRODUCT DESIGN: Our team is the link between R&D and the market. It is their role to develop value-adding flavor technology solutions based on the latest scientific research.
    NATURAL FLAVORS AND INGREDIENTS: Starting from the best sources to create winning natural flavors, FCAD is committed to provide natural extracts, flavor ingredients and complete flavors to respond to the increased demand for natural and authentic products.
    CREATING FLAVORS: Creative, Talented Curious and Expert are the best words to describe our flavorists. Their valuable contribution is to develop creative flavor tonalities and solutions that reflect consumer taste and product constraints, thus combining passion, art and practical technical knowledge

    Product Tailoring

    Once the staging is complete, we can concentrate on adapting the flavor solution to the product:
    FOOD TECHNOLOGY CREATIVITY: Our food technologists surely know the recipe. They work on a daily basis with all the different ingredients that will enter the final product. Their role is to ensure that products cope with the multiple flavor, production, market and consumer constraints. Our chefs, pastry chefs, or even chewing gum or beverage experts all know how to use flavors and flavor technologies efficiently to enhance our clients’ favorite products. At FCAD, we take pride in allowing them to develop their creativity, trying new technologies, flavor mixes, sensations, colors and textures, simply because innovation is at every step of the process.
    UNDERSTANDING TASTE: Precise consumer taste understanding is a perpetual quest. We take a lot of pleasure taking up this challenge. Like consumers, taste evolves, but so do technologies to better perceive them. Our Sensory teams around the world have developed a strong expertise in making it easier to understand consumer taste preferences as well as sensory characteristics and flavor behavior in a product. It is a dynamic and fascinating science that fully contributes to the success of our clients’ products in terms of flavor, texture and sensation.

    PROBLEM SOLVING AND RECOMMENDATIONS
    Our role is to provide a solution to our clients. This means solving problems and giving the best recommendations, throughout the whole development process and even after the flavor has been delivered, whether its flavor related or not. We feel responsible for the quality of our flavor solutions and the result they have in our clients’ products.
