China Study Tour

Home / China Study Tour

16-23 September 2018

As the largest raw ingredient supplier for our Smart range of agricultural chemicals, China plays a pivotal role in the manufacturing process of Crop Smart’s crop protection products.

And now, we’re excited to be giving you the opportunity to see this process in action and explore China, as we host our first China Study Tour in September.

Crop Smart invites you to join a group of farmers on a nine-day escorted trip to China, travelling to Beijing, Nanjing and Shanghai.

We will explore the factories where we source raw ingredients for triallate, glyphosate, MCPA, 24D; hear from agricultural experts on wheat production in China; and visit the many iconic tourist attractions this beautiful nation has to offer.

This is a great opportunity to learn more about the production of agricultural chemicals, while experiencing the trip of a lifetime.

Our China Study Tour is fully tax deductible but limited places are available.
