When we are able, we will publish news on the exciting work we are doing, at our research facility at Wickham, in the south of England.
Agform received U.K. approval for Oxe® the first commercial nanotechnology version of azoxystrobin in the world, which is to be launched through selected distributors in the UK. Developed over four years at Agform’s nanotechnology research centre, in Wickham, Hampshire, the product is set to bring significant benefits to growers in terms of disease control and yield.
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.
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.
George Hollingbery, MP, is to open Agform's new research facility at Hilldale Farm Research Centre in Wickham, on Friday, 21st June 2013 at 11:30 AM. The Research Centre will be unveiled by the MP for Meon Valley, followed by a tour of the laboratories. Hilldale Research Centre will support the development and introduction of Agform's most recent discovery: an innovative herbicide formulation for the control of grass and broad-leaved weeds in cereal crops, to be used at rates up to 5 times lower than traditional formulations.
