FORMULATION ADJUVANTS & TYPES
The biological activity of a crop protection product is determined by its active ingredient, which may be formulated to improve handling, storage, application and bioavailability.
Bioavailability refers to the extent a substance or active ingredient becomes available to its intended biological target site, and is determined by active ingredient concentration at site of application, anatomic & physiological characteristics of the absorptive site, active ingredient solubility and formulation, including the choice of adjuvants.
This bundle provides an insight into modifier and activator adjuvants and their effects on the bioavailability, stability and application of pesticide formulations.
This bundle also provides an insight into simple solutions, suspensions and emulsions of pesticidal active ingredients in solid and liquid formulations to the formulation of multiple active ingredients through complex formulations, as well as an overview of formulation strategies and trends.
