We are taking steps to introduce , develop, and promote new agrochemicals that excel on the world stage

Beginning with the introduction of the fungicide isoprothiolane in 1975, through to the registration obtained for the miticide pyflubumide in 2015, Nihon Nohyaku has discovered, developed, and marketed 15 proprietary active ingredients for agrochemicals not only in Japan but also overseas. In addition, we have developed and launched seven active ingredients for agrochemicals, acquired from third parties. Moreover, we are not only involved in the development of our own new agrochemicals, but are also actively engaged in joint research and development with other companies.
