Who plants challenges to harvest solutions?
As the world's population grows, the need to grow more food on the same or less land translates to higher yield per acre and Ashland agricultural products can help achieve this goal. Here at Ashland, we think, ponder, try, test and in many cases, try and test again. We do that over and over until we find a solution that you like. Whether you're looking for ingredients for seed coatings or ways to make crop protection products more rain resistant, we want to find an answer to your question and a solution to your challenge. From the seed of an idea comes a bountiful harvest of solutions when you work with this passionate team of solvers.
Ashland applies both its chemistries and extensive technical capabilities to supply and support the delivery of active ingredients to help improve field performance, which can lead to higher yields. For many years, the combination of Ashland's know-how and products has helped deliver crop protection chemicals in a variety of agricultural formulations. Our specialty polymers and blends can enhance the stability and biological performance of seed coatings. We work to enhance agricultural formulation properties and biological efficacy on a cost effective basis by applying our knowledge of dispersants and adjuvants.
In agriculture, the Ashland solvers strive to improve both the the delivery and the performance of agrochemicals for food and non-food crops, in both pre-and post-harvest applications. We utilize our product offering of adjuvants, dispersants, wetting agents and binders and work with you on formulations and delivery forms to provide you with solutions that work for you. Regardless of whether you are looking to improve the adhesion, stabilization, suspension, dissolution, or dispersion of herbicides, insecticides or fungicides, Ashland can help develop a solution tailored for your need. Working with Ashland can lead to crop protection as well as higher yields.
Current trends in seed treatment include flowside suspensions and suspo-emulsions to reduce dust hazards, improve formulation stability and increase adhesion. Ashland agri-chemists can design solvent-based or microcapsule formulations as well as seed treatments with polymer film coatings that yield higher value seeds. Ashland formulators combine high performance additives AgsolEx™ solvents, Agrimer™ polymers and co-polymers, and Agrimax™ cellulose ethers with technical expertise to provide solutions that can improve seed performance.
