Review of Green Adjuvants: What's Available? What's Needed?


This paper reviews recent developments in the area of green adjuvants for the agricultural industry. It first defines “green” adjuvant. Several working definitions of “green” are available from a variety of governmental regulatory agencies and consumer groups. These will be visited as a working definition is proposed. The question of which existing adjuvants qualify as “green” will then be explored, along with the question of whether using a green adjuvant offers any added benefits to farmers. This paper will also survey the regulatory environment for green adjuvants. Finally, it identifies future directions for green adjuvants.
