    Abstract

    Computer programs have been written which manage stability studies for agricultural formulations. The programs have been interfaced with a chromatography software package from Nelson Analytical. They are used to initiate stability studies, automatically file stability data from high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) equipment, and access composition and stability data for reports. In addition, they are used to search the composition data files and to update the files on auxilliary disks. A description is provided of the function of each program and how they are organized into a working system.

    Keywords:
