Chinese tank-mix adjuvants rarely reach the western world
Unknown, unloved? Only few know the way to the Chinese information on adjuvants for agrochemicals. Results of experiments with agrochemical adjuvants are (almost) not reported in magazines that are on the reading table of western adjuvant specialists or pesticide formulators. Adjuvants & Formulations unlocks this field with a quick scan covering recent tank-mix adjuvants in papers and patents.

Patents in brief
German scientists have developed a trunk-injectable formulation that releases the included fungicide upon contact with fungal or bacterial enzymes in the vascular system. Adjuvants & Formulations also reports about patent pending granular pyrethroid formulations, novel thickeners to reduce spillage, new drift control agents and liposomal formulations. In this issue also formulations that need no tank-mix adjuvant - according to the inventors.

And further in this issue
