                                        Stricter Environmental Policies from Governments to Hinder the Use of Agricultural
                                        Chemicals
                                        An increasing number of governments around the world are investigating the various side effects
                                        arising from the use of agricultural chemicals. As a result of some of these investigations, some
                                        pesticides have been banned. A major challenge for agricultural chemicals producers around the
                                        world is to make their products more environmentally friendly, otherwise more agricultural
                                        chemicals may be banned in the future. Although environmental regulations are strictest in the
                                        European Union and other major developed countries, stricter regulation is being increasingly
                                        adopted in the developing world
                                        To Provide Food Security and Support the Ever Increasing Food Demands of the World
                                        The global population is increasing rapidly, creating with it an increase in demand for food. The
                                        response to this increase in food demand by governments around the world has been the
                                        sustained use of agricultural chemicals. It is also the response of governments seeking to provide
                                        food security to their nations.
