Adjuvant development for foliar fertilisers requires insight into plant nutrition

Adjuvants can greatly improve the performance of foliar fertilisers. To unlock the potential of adjuvants with foliar fertilisers, it is necessary to combine present adjuvant knowledge with the most recent findings in the field of plant nutrition. Adjuvants & Formulations presents an impetus to the exploration of adjuvants for foliar fertilisers.

Patents in brief

Crystal growth inhibitors and other formulation stabilizing agents are subject of recently filed patent applications. Solvents and solvent systems are also subject of several patent applications. Russian inventors seek patent protection for a surface-active modification of clopyralid to use it as solvent and make clopyralid formulations less frost-sensitive. In this issue also news about glycine betaine amide salt surfactants, the combination of a urease and nitrification inhibitor and the use of nanobubble water as carrier and penetrant.
