Nouryon is launching an ingredient for the agricultural market to help fertiliser and crop protection products to be combined in a single mix
The Agrilan 1028, a new dispersant and compatibiliser, boosts the performance of agricultural formulations, providing a means to improve both crop health and productivity for farmers.
“In modern farming, it’s common practice to mix crop protection products with fertilizers to keep crops healthy and maximise yield,” said Dr Karin Bergström, global technical marketing manager at Nouryon.
“However, a lack of compatibility between active ingredients can cause issues such as loss of efficacy or blocking of spray systems.
Agrilan 1028 aims to add crop protection products to fertiliser solutions and aids the mixing of multiple active ingredients in tank mix formulations, Bergström explained. “In addition, it enhances the performance of crop protection formulations due to its multifunctionality, so the number of such formulations can be reduced.”
AB Ghosh, managing director surface chemistry at Nouryon, added, “With the growing pressure on farm productivity, we’re focused on accelerating our innovation speed to strengthen our portfolio of solutions that help farmers do more with less. Agrilan 1028 is one of a number of new products that will help them meet that challenge.”
