In the agrochemicals sector, Kureha seeks to achieve symbiosis among farmers, consumers and nature.Our focus is on researching and developing agrochemicals that enhance crop yields in harmony with the environment.

Many of Kureha's products are rooted in the basic chemical element, chlorine. Drawing on this foundation has allowed us to create new, value-added products. It is where Kureha's originality lies.
