About Us

Who We Are

Established in 1954 by pesticide formulators who foresaw the need for a regional trade association which would provide them with needed information and speak for the group at state and federal levels with one strong voice.

Membership includes over 95 percent of the firms which manufacture, formulate, and distribute crop protection products in sixteen southern states.

Recognized throughout the industry and by state and federal agencies and legislative elements as the principal spokesperson for the crop protection industry and related trades in the South.

The Benefits of Membership

SCPA provides its members valuable opportunities to interact with one another during our Annual Meeting held in the fall of each year. This meeting allows our members to be updated on business trends and political positioning. We dive into these areas together and observe how these actions affect our members' freedom to operate in the states.

SCPA encourages our members to participate in our annual Washington D.C. Hill visits in May of each year. This opportunity allows our members to engage in a face-to-face dialog with our elected representatives.
