Agricultural, Fertilizer, and Pest Control Chemicals

Industry Overview:
 

To keep up with growing population and food demands, farmers must work harder than ever to promote maximum crop yield and ensure environmental safety and sustainability of these practices. The agricultural, fertilizer, and pest control chemical industry is a vital component of these processes. Not only do agrochemicals promote crop growth, they also prevent the spread of disease, allow us to raise crops in new, harsher environments, and slow deforestation (as farmers need less acreage to secure greater yields). They assist us in avoiding recurrences of such disasters as the Irish Potato Famine, and the Dust Bowl.

Fast-moving changes continue to take place in the use of these chemicals. New environmental standards require upgraded formulations. Companies continue to work on new and enhanced products – including polymer-coated fertilizers, genetically modified organisms, chemicals with antioxidant properties, hormones, and growth agents – with the goal of maximizing production while reducing or eliminating health concerns.

Common Applications:
 
  • Herbicides, such as: glyphosates, atrazine, simazine, and 2,4-D.
  • Pesticides, such as: organophosphate, carbamate, organochlorine, pyrethroid, sulfonylurea, biopesticides, and botanicals.
  • Fertilizers, plant growth promotion, soil conditioners: macronutrients, micronutrients, organic, inorganic, ammonium nitrate, sodium nitrate, potash.
  • Fungicides
  • Agricultural intermediates
  • Agricultural commodities marketing roles.
  • Crop protection products for storage and transport.
  • Pest control intermediates
