In 2016, we invested €205 million in property, plant and equipment. Most of this investment amount is attributable to the expansion of dicamba production capacity in Beaumont, Texas. We also increased capacities for the fungicide Xemium® and enlarged a formulation plant for fungicides in Tarragona, Spain. Furthermore, we are continuing to invest in innovative solutions that go beyond classic crop protection. One example from the area of Functional Crop Care is our new research and development center for biological crop protection and seed solutions in Limburgerhof, Germany, which combines expertise in chemical and biological solutions. In order to continue meeting the ongoing high demand for our innovative products in the future, we will invest around €840 million in developing and expanding our infrastructure and in our production and formulation capacities for active ingredients between 2017 and 2021.
