On-demand webinar | Advancing delivery of biologicals through optimisation: smart formulation design

There is a clear shift in agriculture towards more sustainable products, methods, and processes with biological control being widely explored as a credible option. Whilst biological products can provide a sustainable alterative to chemical pesticides, how do we overcome the formulation challenges they present?

Focusing specifically on the use of microbes, they would not be effective in agriculture if used on their own as viability would be lost before they could reach their intended target, whether that is the soil or on a leaf. Formulation of microbial biopesticides is about providing a suitable delivery system that maintains the viability of the microbe until it is delivered to its end application.

In the lead up to ISAA 2025 Conference, Croda Crop Protection was invited to kick start the event’s monthly webinar series that aims to bring about the latest trends and developments within the agrochemical industry. 

In this webinar, we reviewed the challenges associated with formulating microbial biopesticides, what you need to consider prior to formulating and product solutions. You can watch the recording of the webinar below
