Oxiteno Showcases Its Biosolutions Platform at the ASTM Conference

Posted On: October 14, 2019

The ASTM Conference takes place in Houston, TX, from October 22 to 24. It will be attended by leading researchers and companies in pesticides, antimicrobials and alternative control agents. Experts from Oxiteno’s Agrochemicals area will be at the event to discuss the main technologies in pesticide formulations and adjuvants, especially in bio-based compounds.

Bio-based formulations are touted as an important advance in agriculture and have enormous potential for increasing productivity in the field. However, the stable and effective formulation of these compounds is more complex. To meet this challenge, Oxiteno has an innovation platform called Biosolutions, with the required structure and specialists in these formulations. The company works in partnership with its customers to develop customized solutions that deliver the best results in applications.

The development stages for specific formulations for bio-based pesticides is the theme of the talk by Oxiteno researcher Poliana Cardoso-Gustavson. She presents the talk, “Building microbial-containing formulations: from the selection of components to foliage application,” on October 23, at 2:30 PM.

The symposium will provide a forum for the presentation and discussion of formulation and application technologies associated with crop protection and adjuvant products. Primary attention will be directed to presentations related to:

  • Novel formulation development
  • Technology advancements for weed resistance
  • Application technologies related to drift reduction
  • Product stewardship, sustainability, and safety
  • Global regulatory trends impacting agrochemical formulations
  • Physical and chemical test methods related to crop protection products
