Agrow safener and synergist
|出版日期||內容資訊||英文 97 Pages
This report comprehensively covers the use of safeners and synergists as performance enhancers for herbicides and insecticides. It also details trends and developments in other applications, such as safening phytotoxic fungicides and synergising herbicides. Safeners and synergists that have been developed and marketed are fully described, focusing on the current most important commercially and their uses. Recent safener and synergist patents are listed and the relevant activities and product portfolios of major agrochemical companies are discussed. Safeners and synergists are used to improve product performance. Safeners improve herbicide selectivity by enhancing the metabolism of active ingredients by crop plants, but not by weeds, while synergists increase insecticide efficacy by inhibiting insect enzymes involved in detoxification. Safeners have been widely used with some classes of herbicides for many years, especially with chloroacetanilides in maize. Safeners and synergists are also regulated as active ingredients under the new European Plant Protection Regulation 1107/2009, as outlined in this report.
