In the agricultural industry, crop protection chemicals are widely used to prevent crops from getting damaged and ensuring better yields. Insecticides, herbicides, and fungicides are used to control threats to the crop in a variety of ways. As the global food demand increases, there is also a need for more effective crop protection products. While research is being done to make these chemicals get more effective, there is also another solution. Agricultural adjuvants are additives that can be used together with herbicides, insecticides, and fungicides to make them more effective. Adjuvants cannot be used on their own but they significantly enhance the activity of other crop protection products. These can be a part of the formulation itself (built-in adjuvants) or be a separate product that can be mixed in with the crop protection chemical before it is applied to the crops (tank mix-adjuvants).
Agricultural adjuvants can broadly be classified into three categories. These are:
