Over half of the world’s crops would be lost to weeds, diseases, and insects without protection. Agricultural intermediates are used to produce active ingredients for pesticides (insecticides, herbicides, fungicides) that help to keep plants safe and enable farmers to produce sustainable yields.
herbicides - intermediates for active ingredients
Alpha picoline is a building block for many herbicide products. These products are used to control unwanted weeds and brush to boost productivity and help feed growing populations.
fungicides - intermediates for active ingredients
Gamma Picoline is a building block for fungicide products. These products are used to control damaging fungi to boost crop productivity and help feed growing populations.
processing aids for crop protection
3,5-Lutidine is a processing aid used in the manufacture of agrichemicals (e.g. solvent for producing sulfonamides). It is an essential building block in ALS (acetolactate synthase) inhibitor herbicides that protect rice and wheat crops by controlling broadleaf weeds and grasses.
Easy-Flo DMAP has been shown to be effective in improving speed and reducing by-products in reactions applicable to many products in agrochemicals. Unwanted side reactions and impurities prevalent when using other catalysts are greatly reduced, even in difficult reactions. That means higher chemical yield, faster throughput, and a purer final product.
Our Easy-Flo DMAP is a pelletized product that offers improved handling through enhanced flowability, reduced dust, and decreased product compaction.
Pesticides (insecticides, herbicides, fungicides) help to keep plants safe and enable farmers to produce sustainable yields. Agricultural intermediates are used to produce active ingredients for these pesticides. 2,3-Dichloropyridine is a key component of the active ingredient in anthranilic diamide insecticides, which offer excellent control of lepidopteran and hemipteran pests. Because of their unique mechanism of action that targets the ryanodine receptor in insects, these pesticides can overcome resistance to other products while offering very low toxicity to mammals.
