AgriService was launched in 1999 by Phillips McDougall to provide subscribers with a comprehensive research source for information and analysis in the global crop protection industry. The product comprises five distinct parts: AgriReference, AgriFutura, Product Directory, AgreWorld and Analyst Support.

The AgriReference volume features detailed profiles of the leading companies in the industry. As well as detailing each company’s involvement at the regional and product level, these profiles highlight factors which influence market performance, provide trend analysis, and include our expectations for future performance.
