One of Our Many Members


Gowan Company, a family-owned registrant and marketer of crop protection products based in Yuma, AZ started as a crop consultancy in 1963. Our foundation was formed by walking the rows and orchards in lockstep with our customers. Gowan's success is attributed to our focus on niche products and minor crops, accompanied by technical know-how and customer responsiveness. Gowan Company differs from other chemical companies because we started in the field, walking with and listening to our customers. Our roots are firmly planted in the fruit, nut, vegetable and specialty crop sector but we seek niches in all crops when there is a need to provide and protect unique crop protection solutions. We position our products on best agronomic fit and technical merit. Gowan Company is known in the ag chemical industry as a political advocate for pesticides. We dedicate our resources to keep the pulse of agriculture in the forefront of our daily business. Gowan serves on committees that affect pesticide legislations and maintains key contacts in this arena. We listen to your needs to find new uses for our products, and make a commitment to keeping those products in the marketplace. Gowan Company recognizes the need to rescue mature products that larger companies no longer find value in retaining. We acquire and defend valuable crop protection products that are critical to key markets. We are responsive and readily available to our customers, and most importantly, we maintain an unwavering commitment to serving growers.
