Course overview

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 the site of application, anatomic & physiological characteristics of the absorptive site, active ingredient solubility and formulation, including the choice of adjuvants.

This course provides an insight into modifier and activator adjuvants and their effects on the bioavailability, stability and application of pesticide formulations.

By understanding adjuvants – what they do and how they work - the application and bioavailability of crop protection formulations can be optimized, enhancing efficacy and providing product differentiation.

The course is designed for:

  • R&D Managers
  • Crop Protection Researchers and Advisors
  • Field Trial Providers and Agronomists
  • Formulation Chemists and Biologists
  • Students and Lecturers of agronomy and crop protection
