General Manager of UIPP (French Association of the Crop Protection Industry), Jean Charles Bocquet heads up the group essentially comprising transnational manufacturing pesticide producers (BASF, Monsanto, DuPont et Nemours, Bayer…). The UIPP is the professional union of manufacturers marketing agriculture phytopharmacological products and services. This association follows up and makes regulation move forward, presenting positions and actions of public authorities and parties involved in the sector to governmental bodies. It founded ADIVALOR (Farmers Industrial Distributors for the Valorization of Agricultural Waste) and FARRE (Forum of the Respectful Reasoned Agriculture of the Environment which aims to promote reasoned agriculture). UIPP is also an important source of data concerning the pesticides market in France and in Europe (http://www.info-pesticides.org/).
