LONDON : UPL Ltd. (NSE: UPL and BSE: 512070), a world leader in sustainable agriculture products and solutions, has announced the launch of ‘NPP’ – Natural Plant Protection – a new global business unit housing UPL’s comprehensive portfolio of natural and biologically derived agricultural inputs and technologies.
NPP will act as a stand-alone brand, consolidating UPL’s existing biosolutions portfolio, network of R and D laboratories and facilities worldwide, which currently accounts for 7 per cent of UPL’s total revenues.
NPP’s global offering will continue to benefit from UPL’s extensive global distribution footprint, drawing on innovation, research and development capabilities, and will be supported by UPL’s unique, proven ability to rapidly bring products to market on a global scale.
NPP’s extensive portfolio will play a vital role addressing farmers’ pain points – including abiotic stress, soil health, residues, and resistance management – in developed and developing agricultural markets alike.
One of NPP’s greatest strengths will be the company’s ability to cross-pollinate innovation across regions, understanding and learning from the needs of one market to increase the speed and depth of penetration into another market. NPP will be agile in adding products and platforms to its portfolio, creating global partnerships and training programs, contributing to environmental sustainability, farmer resilience, and improving food value chains worldwide.
