  • Bayer: The Core Strategy of Accelerating Formulation Technology Innovation   2019-07-08

    Our core competence is combining the vast knowledge and experience we have across Bayer in a wide range of disciplines, such as chemistry, biology, field development, application technology, and more. To do this, we have an in-house innovation platform in the formulation area, which allows exploration of blue-sky ideas and new formulation concepts, and ensures cross-site know-how exchanges between different formulation teams. And while we have an excellent understanding of product performance attributes, such as efficacy, application behavior and shelf life stability, we continually look outwards to improve. For example, we partner with our commercial teams to ensure sound understanding of market needs and involvement in the design of new commercial product concepts to best meet our customers’ needs. And we actively collaborate with universities and other outside experts to expand knowledge and perspective.

  • Future Requirements, Challenges and Core Competences in Formulation Innovation and Development   2019-07-03

    In the broad background of satisfying the overall agricultural production needs in food, fiber and fuel crop productions, farmers usually rely heavily on agrochemicals in modern farming to enhance crop yield, increase plant growth, neutralize the soil, and protect against pests, including weeds, insects, and fungi. The issues are how to increase and optimize the agricultural output in each region through smart utilization of agrochemicals. The corresponding formulation R/D challenges resides in developing new combo formulations, which are becoming more complex to formulate. Take a close look at potential formulation components that a formulator must face; including the chemical active ingredients, wetting agents, emulsifiers, surfactants, dispersants, polymers, solvents, oils, adjuvants, suspension aids, powders, buffers, rheology modifiers, water, adjuvants and more.

  • Growth opportunities using Vive’s Allosperse technology   2019-06-25

    The Allosperse Delivery System is a nanoscale, polymer-based delivery system with extremely high ‘tunability.’ We can produce many different types of polymer encapsulation particles with different internal and external chemical properties. The inside can be tuned for optimal association with an active ingredient, while the outside can be tuned for whatever behavior is desired - mixability, targeted mobility, stability, etc.

  • Insight into innovative adjuvant technologies and initiatives on the formulation technology innovation   2019-03-20

    Adjuvant are needed to manage inherent physical active ingredient properties and associated aspects and play an important role in designing and tuning of product properties, for example, retention, spreading and uptake. Adjuvant technology can enhance the effectiveness of agrochemical formulations by improving their biological efficacy. In brief, adjuvants are a key component in formulation technology innovation. Accordingly, AgroPages recently invited three key players in this field: Evonik, Croda and AXEB to share their insights on the new adjuvant technologies, key influencing factors and potential solutions of the adjuvant technology development, as well as future development plan etc.
