In 2017, we invested €114 million in property, plant and equipment. Major projects included the startup of our expanded production capacities for dicamba in Beaumont, Texas, as well as new production capacities for our fungicide Revysol® and our insecticide Inscalis®. In the area of Functional Crop Care, we expanded our capacities for biological seed treatments and soil management in Saskatoon, Canada. We also invested in infrastructure, in particular at our plants in North America. In order to continue meeting the ongoing high demand for our innovative solutions in the future, we will invest around €780 million in developing and expanding our infrastructure and in our production and formulation capacities for active ingredients between 2018 and 2022.
