Green Solvents

Safer and Powerful Solvent Solutions for Crop Protection Formulations

In recent years, rapidly spreading resistance issues along with increasing regulatory requirements and end-consumer demand for safer and eco-friendly products have become the main drivers for the agrochemical industry

After years of intensive agricultural practices, traditional pest control strategies are being challenged, leading to the development of a broader spectrum of disease control products with multiple modes of action. Agrochemical formulators have been adapting their offerings with more complex, increasingly safer formulations that feature new active ingredients and modes of action, including biorationals and combinations of existing a.i. In parallel, the choice of co-formulants and green solvents for crop protection formulations are key selection criteria to reduce environmental risks.

For Emulsifiable Concentrate (EC), a widely used type of agrochemical formulation, the agrochemical industry relies on the right solvent toolbox to balance biological efficiency and environmental impact of the final crop protection product.
