Pesticide Synergist-A New Way to Overcome Pesticide Resistance
At a time when the world is facing increasing population, decreasing land, intensifying food demand and increasingly severe environmental requirements, agricultural and chemical enterprises need to develop more efficient and safe new pesticides to ensure food production safety. However, the development cycle of new pesticides is long, the investment is large, the risks are high, and the success rate is low. Therefore, the problem of serious pesticide resistance and unsatisfactory effect has been a difficult problem for agrochemical enterprises. However, the application of new pesticide synergist additives has played a very great role in promoting the better use of pesticides, reducing the dosage, expanding the application range and overcoming the problem of pesticide resistance. The Chinese enterprise Yantai Qiwei Fertilizer Co. Ltd ( www.auson.com.cn) is an outstanding performer in this field. Since 2016, Qiwei company has fully popularized AUSON® plant essential oil, a pure plant pesticide synergist. Unitl now, it has received very good market performance in China. More than 1,500 agrochemical professional service providers, including manufacturers and large application service providers, have established close cooperation with Qiwei company, and the application and promotion of crops has reached more than 1 billion mu.
The AUSON® plant essential oil produced by Yantai Qiwei Fertilizer Co.,Ltd（www.auson.com.cn）is a biological product made from essential oil extracted from plants and through special process. AUSON® plant essential oil is a new pesticide synergist. When AUSON® plant essential oil is used at high concentration (diluted 500 times with water), it can dissolve the wax layer on the surface of the worm body to cause death of the worm, and can dissolve and destroy the mycelium structure to cause death of the mycelium. When AUSON® plant essential oil is used at low concentration (diluted 1000-1500 times with water), it can significantly enhance the use effect of pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, foliar fertilizers and other products. The AUSON® plant essential oil can obviously improve the effect of pesticide by helping the liquid of pesticide to quickly adsorb on the surface of plants or pests and expand to the surrounding and penetrate into the surface tissue.
When AUSON® plant essential oil is mixed with corresponding pesticides, it can obviously improve its wetting, spreading, dispersing, retention and permeability, reduce the drift of spray liquid medicine with the wind (airflow), prevent or reduce the damage to adjacent sensitive crops, etc., facilitate the spreading and adhesion of liquid medicine on leaf surfaces, reduce the decomposition of effective components in pesticide preparations by ultraviolet rays, and achieve the aims of prolonging the effective period of efficacy, improving its biological activity, reducing dosage, reducing cost, overcoming resistance and protecting ecological environment. AUSON® plant essential oil can improve the control effect of pesticides several times or dozens of times, delay the generation of resistance and prolong the life of hard-won pesticide varieties.
Studies have proved that AUSON® plant essential oil has penetrating ability to pest epidermis, which is conducive to the full use of the drug to achieve the purpose of synergy. In particular, nerve agents, mainly in the form of contact killing, accelerate the penetration of pesticides so that they reach the effective dose in the insect body and reach the target as soon as possible, thus causing poisoning death of pests. For many insecticides with low penetrability, AUSON® plant essential oil can be added as a solvent to increase its contact toxicity, increase the lipid solubility and penetrability of the insecticide, enhance the ability to dissolve or destroy the upper epidermis, and enable substances with low or no lipid solubility to penetrate into the insect body. For resistant pests, penetration rate has a more significant effect on drug efficacy, because one of the physiological factors of resistance is the reduction of pesticide penetration. AUSON® plant essential oil can not only help pesticides to overcome the problem of insect resistance to pesticides, but also help to overcome the problem of weed resistance to herbicides, overcome the problem of fungicide resistance, and overcome the problem of low absorption rate of foliar fertilization .... At present, studies have shown that AUSON® plant essential oil also has a strong synergistic effect on water-soluble fertilizers. Chinese farmers have added AUSON® plant essential oil during drip irrigation fertilization to increase the absorption speed of fertilizers.
In china, AUSON® plant essential oil is usually packaged into small packages for sale. AUSON® plant essential oil is a good helper especially loved by pesticide distributors to improve pesticide effect. AUSON® plant essential oil is also added to pesticides by producers at a ratio of 10% in the process of manufacturing pesticides, making common pesticides into pesticides with special effects. The AUSON® plant essential oil can help improve the application effect of pesticides by 30%-50% under the condition of keeping the dosage of pesticides unchanged. It has positive significance in the field of reducing the use of chemical pesticides and reducing pesticide residues in agricultural products. The AUSON® plant essential oil comes from plants and is also used in plants. It is safe, low toxic, easy to degrade and environmentally friendly. AUSON® plant essential oil can also increase production and improve the quality of agricultural products.
Yantai Qiwei Fertilizer Co., Ltd（www.auson.com.cn）is a world-renowned research and development and production enterprise of pesticide synergists. Since its establishment in 2004, the company has been committed to helping more pesticide producers and users solve the problems of insect resistance and weed resistance. Currently, it has provided professional services to more than 1,500 pesticide manufacturers and pesticide sales service providers.
Information data from the world agrochemical industry show that under the planting of the concept of "green plant protection", the global market for agricultural additives has maintained a compound growth rate of 7% year after year. Among them, due to the impact of pesticide reduction, zero growth of chemical fertilizers, changes in planting patterns and innovations in application methods, many research institutions predict that China will become the fastest growing region in the agricultural additive market in the next five years, with demand expected to exceed 800,000 tons and a market value of about 50 billion yuan. Among them, the market for barrel blending additives added in the application process is 500,000 tons, with a market value of about 30 billion yuan. Barrel blending additives will become the most important synergist and decrement promoter in the fields of pesticides, fungicides, herbicides and special fertilizers in the Chinese market. The explosive growth and barrel blending of additives will undoubtedly be the future of agriculture. "Those barrel blending additives with better compatibility, superior interface performance, safety, environmental protection and composite functions will become the new favorites of the market and the future direction." Wu Xue Min, director of the professional Committee on pesticide formulations and additives of the China pesticide development and application association and professor of China agricultural university, said.
With the in-depth promotion of the concept of green plant protection, Qiwei （www.auson.com.cn）will continuously improve their research and development capabilities of new products to serve the global green agriculture with brand advantages and high-quality products.
