Product Overview

Advances in their Use and Application in Herbicides, Fungicides and Insecticides

Advances in the use of adjuvants for not only herbicides, but also fungicides and insecticides are covered, together with a review of recent patent literature.

The companies involved in various parts of the adjuvants and additives sector are listed and profiled: crop protection companies, specialty chemical companies and specialist adjuvant companies.

Adjuvants to enhance biological performance and other additives to improve the effective use of crop protection sprays are routinely used by farmers and growers in many regions. Interest in optimising performance will continue to grow as the availability of effective active ingredients diminishes, and the need for cost-efficacy and ease-of-use increase.

Originally, essentially tank-mix products for herbicides, the scope of adjuvant use has now broadened to include fungicides and insecticides, and often products are described as having built-in adjuvant systems.

Efforts to develop a better understanding of the properties of adjuvants, and the ways in which they act on their targets and interact with active ingredients, have put them on a much sounder scientific footing.
