Featured in AgroPages Magazine: Unlocking the Power of Biological Active Ingredients Through Formulation Technology

January 24, 2024

The agricultural industry continues to witness a shift toward sustainable practices. These changes are driven by environmental regulations, reduced pesticide usage and consumer demand for organic produce.

Biological products can provide multiple benefits as biopesticides, biostimulants or biofertilizers when applied as part of regular agronomic practices. However, for biologicals to continue to see an increase in demand, formulators will need to address some of the real and perceived limitations:

  • Lack of formulation stability resulting in separation and inconsistent application
  • Poor active stability resulting in short shelf-life and sometimes the need for cold storage
  • Inconsistent performance in the field driven by environmental factors
  • Misaligned agronomic performance (high cost vs. yield uplift)

Stepan Agricultural Solutions addresses these changes with a customized approach to microbial formulation development.
