Innovation Meeting for agchem adjuvant and formulation specialists


March 7, 2018, Rotterdam, The Netherlands

Inspiring programme and Adjuvant mini market

Innovation Meeting for agchem adjuvant and formulation specialists, that is the inspiring theme for the one day symposium on adjuvant innovations in agrochemistry. The meeting is focused on new developments/trends in the technology and science of adjuvants and formulations for agrochemicals and biopesticides.

Experienced scientists from the top 5 agchem companies (Syngenta, Bayer, BASF, Dow and Monsanto) and scientists from the University of Amsterdam and Ghent University will share their insights with you. AkzoNobel will provide an update on the formulations for foliar nutrients and SURfaPLUS informs on the relevance of spray drop deposit make-up. In addition companies and academia will show their products and research results at the Adjuvant Mini Market.

EAA-Innovations 2018 is the follow-up on the two successful SURfaPLUS Adjuvants symposia, in Amsterdam (2011 and 2015). EAA-Innovations 2018 is organised by SURfaPLUS and will be held in LantarenVenster in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Chairman of the day is Han Rieffe from Croda.
