Novel fungicidal Compounds
New synthesis laboratory opens

A new synthesis laboratory was opened at Agform's Hilldale Research Centre in Wickham to develop novel fungicide compounds, based on groundbreaking research at the University of Sussex, as a result of the institution's first ever industrial partnership. Work planned at the site will help to drive vital research into the control of respiratory activity in fungi which attack the world's major cereal crops.

Blutron® Product Launch

Agform received U.K. approvals for Blutron® and Blutron® plus, products containing isoproturon and diflufenican, to allow their application on winter cereals in the autumn. Using the different mode of action that isoproturon exhibits, together with novel technology, to reduce the application rate to a safe level without affecting efficacy, the products offer an alternative method of grass and broad leaved weed control to cereal growers.
