FMC Corporation invites you to visit its European Innovation Center (EIC) in Hørsholm. Here, FMC has concentrated its R&D in biologicals, crop nutrition and biostimulants under the umbrella of Plant Health. FMC is an agricultural sciences company with a commitment to spending 100% of R&D on developing sustainable products by 2025. The company’s biological crop protection and plant health solutions deliver value on top of existing farming practices.
The EIC was established in 2017 to accelerate in-house biological discovery and screening. Scientists isolate natural microbes from soil, screen for unique biopesticide or biostimulant solutions, and test their performance in on-site greenhouses. In 2019, the facility was expanded to include state-of-the-art fermentation and processing equipment, which currently is being upgraded to produce pheromones for mating disruption solutions.
FMC employs approximately 6,400 employees at more than 100 sites worldwide. Just under 150 employees work at the EIC and its pheromone unit in Copenhagen.
