Innovative Products and a Commitment to Responsible Ag
With these strengths, we’re working to reduce the impact of agricultural operations on the environment.
For example, as part of a voluntary move away from Nonylphenol Ethoxylates (NPE), Wilbur-Ellis developed the ECO ADVANTAGE® platform. This environmentally friendly adjuvant system has an aquatic rating from the EPA, making it safer to use near aquatic sites, including lakes and rivers.
Wilbur-Ellis was also a founding member of ResponsibleAg, a not-for-profit organization founded by the agriculture industry. Through this organization, we share expertise to enhance product stewardship throughout the distribution chain.
How do our nation’s farmers continue to produce food to feed more people while protecting the environment? The challenge is real and the answer is right under our feet.
An important goal of sustainable agriculture is preserving the land. Soil health is a key component, along with stabilizing the soil. That’s why the Harvest Bounty seed brand was created by Wilbur-Ellis.
When it comes to agricultural sustainability, that definition needs to be expanded to include economic profitability, environmental and agro-ecosystem integrity, and social responsibility.
