  • Publication number: 20120035054
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to pesticide compositions consisting of meso-sized particles in combination with certain adjuvants such as built-in adjuvants which are added directly to the formulation or to an aqueous dilution of the formulation such as tank-mix adjuvants, to provide enhanced effectiveness for the control of agricultural pests. Mesoparticle compositions containing such adjuvants have been found to provide improved effectiveness compared to mesoparticle compositions not containing such adjuvants or to conventional formulations.

  • Publication number: 20110257010
    Abstract: The present invention relates to an aqueous dispersion comprising solid pesticide particles with a particle size of below 10 ?m and a saccharide which is dissolved in the aqueous phase. The invention furthermore relates to a process for the preparation of a dispersion according to the invention by bringing a pesticide and a saccharide, which is a monosaccharide, a disaccharide or a mixture of mono- and disaccharide, into contact and dispersing them. A further subject matter relates to the use of a saccharide for slowing down the particle growth of pesticide particles with a particle size of up to 10 ?m in aqueous dispersion, to the use of the dispersion or the solid composition for controlling phytopathogenic fungi and/or undesired vegetation and/or undesired attack by insects or mites and/or for regulating the growth of plants. Finally, the present invention also relates to seed, dressed with the dispersion or the solid composition.

  • Publication number: 20110245082
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a use of a graft copolymer obtainable by free-radical polymerization of a monomer mixture comprising N-vinyllactam, vinyl ester, and a polyether for increasing the activity of a pesticide. The invention also relates to a composition comprising a pesticide and a graft copolymer obtainable by free-radical polymerization of a monomer mixture comprising i) 30 to 80% by weight of N-vinylpyrrolidone, N-vinylcaprolactam or mixtures thereof, ii) 10 to 50% by weight of vinyl acetate, and iii) 10 to 50% by weight of a polyether. It further relates to a method for preparing said composition by mixing the pesticide and the graft copolymer and to a method for controlling phytopathogenic fungi and/or undesired plant growth and/or undesired attack by insects or mites and/or for regulating the growth of plants.
