Formulation Types introduction
This section provides an overview into simple solutions, suspensions and emulsions of pesticidal active ingredients in solid and liquid formulations to the formulation of multiple active ingredients through complex formulations, as well as an overview of formulation strategies and trends.
What are the main learnings/takeaways from this section?
Participants will have an understanding and overview of pesticide formulation as a technology to optimize the combination of pesticidal active and inert ingredients to make the final product biologically effective, stable and safe. Based on this overview, formulation strategies and selection criteria will be covered. In addition, formulation trends focusing on the shift to formulation types that are easier and safer to handle and apply, have reduced environmental toxicity, are able to combine multiple (often incompatible) active ingredients will be considered, as well as the unique requirements and challenges for biopesticide formulation.
