Technology for the future

Cutting edge research in the UK

Designed to grow

Agform's long term commitment to supporting growers, is shown by our investment in the long term development of technology, designed to provide solutions to the increasing problems faced in the UK and beyond. Increasing regulatory, environmental and financial demands, require new approaches. We use the most advanced research techniques to ensure these challenges are met and that we are able to contribute in a small way, in providing food for the growing world population.


Novel fungicidal Compounds
Molecular Modelling

Agform are utilising advanced computer modelling to lead our research into discovering novel molecules to control pathogens. The technique will help in the selection and synthesis of candidate molecules for testing in the greenhouse and field.

Controlled Release

Agform's research facility was the first in the world to develop a controlled release formulation of clomazone which reduced the non-target effect of this important herbicide. We continue to apply our experience and knowledge in the development and manufacture of this important type of delivery system.
