  • 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.

  • A Close Look at the New Group Portrait of the Agrochemical Industry in 2018 and Trend Analysis for the Industry   2019-03-15

    The M&A binge, seen in the global agrochemical industry over the past five years, is about to end. Industry powerhouses will benefit from the synergistic effect increasingly unleashed in the wake of M&As, and the resulting “Matthew Effect” will loom large. Predictably, over the next few years, M&As among small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), as well as their alliances with larger companies stand to become a staple of the industry. On the other hand, powerhouses will become more dedicated to building platforms and agricultural ecosystems, and they may even go as far as breaking boundaries and empowering new ecology. During this process, Japanese agrochemical enterprises, committed to innovation and craftsmanship, promise to continue their leadership in the development of new agrochemical products. Indian agrochemical companies promise to grow in prominence because they excel in capturing industry trends and can ensure quick responses, thus transforming challenges into opportunities. Digital agriculture, which has been applied throughout the development of the industry, promises to enter a new era with increased “depth” and “width”.

  • Copper-based Fungicides: Insight Into the Present Scenario and Future Trend   2018-10-30

    Copper-based fungicides play a decisive role in controlling bacterial diseases, whether evaluated in efficacy or market shares. At the same time, copper-based fungicides show high efficacy against some fungal diseases such as downy mildew, alternaria leaf spot and brown blotches in fruits and vegetables crops. Due to the advantages of eco-friendship, relative safety, rare resistance and usage in organic agriculture, copper-based fungicides have steadily retained the sixth position among all fungicides. Accordingly, AgroPages recently came up with a special topic surrounding copper-based fungicides/bactericide products and invited some key players in this field to share their views over the global market landscape, product series, core strengths, application situation, as well as future development prospects. The participating companies include: Spiess-Urania Chemicals GmbH, Nufarm, Quimetal Industrial, Industrias Químicas del Vallés (IQV) and Shyam Chemicals.

  • Guangxi Tianyuan: Integrated Farming Services to Help Transform and Upgrade China's Agriculture   2018-10-29

    Guangxi Tianyuan positions itself as an assistant to integrated farming services providers, rather than as an integrated farming services provider. In our opinion, the main players engaged in integrated farming services in the future should be the platform providers in counties and their cooperative farming services managers. Based on this concept, Guangxi Tianyuan has been, in recent years, vigorously supporting agri-inputs wholesalers who have cooperated with us for many years or those who have never done business with us but agree with the concept of farming services. By providing these wholesalers with highly effective pesticides, pesticide application equipment and such other highly efficient agricultural machinery as sugarcane harvesting machines and mobile dryers, Guangxi Tianyuan supports them in the transformation to plant protection and integrated farming services providers.

  • Wynca: Strengthens development of formulation and adjuvant for UAV application, Nongfeike Platform plays an active role in establishing benign eco-market   2018-10-26

    In 2017, Wynca conducted restructuring of its research institution, taking into account the agricultural service strategy of the company, thus to move towards integration of production and technical research. The research team, which is dedicated to aerial application-oriented pesticide and adjuvant development, has 26 staff members, including 1 doctorate and 25 post-graduate staff members. Wynca is also cooperating with the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences, Zhejiang University of Technology, Nankai University and Nanjing Agricultural University, in research and development of aerial application-oriented pesticides and adjuvants. In the meantime, the research hardware facilities of Wynca are much improved, as all fundamental pesticide adjuvant analysis methods and equipment are made available. Wynca has its complete analytical appliances for analysis of contact angles, droplet sizes and droplet depositions, being able to conduct all necessary tests. We are now considering the setting up of our product evaluation system.
