As the world’s population increases, so too does the need for increasing amounts of fresh water and food, including crops which may require soil conditioning, fertilizers, insecticides, herbicides and pesticides to flourish and return maximum yields.
Speciality agrochemicals provide the traditional route to pest management and increasing crop yield, while biopesticides are one of the latest agrochemical innovations that are predicted to realise excellent future growth as farmers and food manufacturers look for alternative, less toxic methods of crop management that are more environmentally friendly – using plant material, bacteria and various minerals, rather than the more conventional chemical applications.
Stringent regulations apply to the traditional agrochemicals industry, which deals with products made from speciality chemicals that are very often toxic and can be explosive.
