Discover SILCOLAPSE™ our brand providing performance in Crop Care at ISAA 2022

Elkem Silicones will be at the International Symposium on Agrochemical Adjuvants 2022 (ISAA) in April 25th to 29th in Bordeaux.

This conference will be held for the first time in France, one of the largest agrochemical and adjuvant market in Europe. The 2022 ISAA Symposium is one of the most important events where you can learn about the newest agrochemical techniques as well as the most up-to-date research and novel advances of agrochemical products.

We live in a time of an increasing pressure on agriculture with demands for bio-renewable and environmentally friendly inputs, reduced packaging, circular economy and not least feeding the expected population growth.

Additionally, the regulatory demands to bring new technology to market and also defend existing technologies is constantly changing, but always increasing.

This meeting of the Crop Care industry is dedicated to sharing ideas, learning about market developments, solving problems, and networking with colleagues across the value chain. This congress gathers the whole industry together with extensive networking opportunities, debating the industry challenges of today and tomorrow. 

During the conference this year, our experts will be available to discuss specific application needs and will present our last innovations SILCOLAPSE™ CLEAR 30 and SILCOLAPSE™ SP ULTRA 2.

While at the symposium, Eliane Emond Crop Care Expert Scientist will also present on April 27th (4:00 pm) our Innovative silicone co-formulants: advanced performances for foam control agent.
