Project: Ecologically sound adjuvants in crop protection

project duration
01-DEC-04 – 30-NOV-06
Adjuvants are necessary for the efficient application of pesticides. They make it possible to apply the active compound in the lowest concentration with a maximum effect. The older generation of adjuvants (alkyl phenols, petroleum derivatives) is the subject of discussion because of their toxicological profile. This project has the purpose to find ecologically sound alternatives for a sustainable crop protection.
