Role of pesticide formulations for sustainable crop protection and environment management: A review

Author(s):

Dipak Kumar Hazra and Aloke Purkait

Abstract:
The role of pesticides in preventing crop losses, making available food at cheap rates and improvement in quality of food cannot be overemphasized. Development and identification of new pesticide molecules has reached to almost a saturation point. This has brought the importance of pesticide formulations to the fore. The purpose of formulating pesticide active ingredients for crop protection is to uniformly spread a small amount of an active chemical over a large area. The goal is to ensure safety in handling and during application and to optimize pesticide efficacy. This requires that the pesticide formulation be chemically stable and physically uniform under all foreseeable storage conditions so that the minimum effective amount can be accurately applied to target areas.
