Leading experts in the field of pesticides provide the latest on formulation and delivery of pest control systems for the next century.
11 papers cover topics such as application technology, granular formulation technology, delivery systems, general formulation technology, and future concerns.
Application Technology discusses developments around the application of pest control products relating both chemical and mechanical means.
Granulation Technology addresses issues such as water dispersability, preparation of granules using a binding polymer, and sample size variation.
Delivery Technology covers the role of a petrochemical fluid in the release rate of encapsulated formulations and the ability of a product to penetrate a plant cuticular layer.
Formulation Technology investigates issues from seed treatment methods to the use of attapulgite in flowable formulations.
Future Concerns looks at new techniques and methods for future concerns and new methods for existing concerns.
This publication provides the agrochemical professional with timely and useful information on the use of pest control products on a global basis.
