Microcapsule product is an environment-friendly type of pesticide, with lower dosage and a smaller number of applications, which is an effective means to achieve the goal of reduction of pesticide-use and increase of efficiency.
Microcapsule technology is core competitiveness of Pilarquim. At the ceremony, Liu Runfeng, Director of R&D Center of Pilarquim, gave an introduction to the new PILARCLOTRIN and other microcapsule products of Pilarquim. New PILARCLOTRIN is an upgraded microcapsule product applied with the latest technologies. These technologies include the use of nano-adjuvant and capsule wall material, the use of algae extracts to modify and upgrade the capsule wall material, the use of ester solvents to replace aromatic hydrocarbon solvents. This solves the problem of contact hypersensitivity in the use of lambda-cyhalothrin as well as generation of irritating odor. Hence, the product quality and user experience are improved constantly. Up to date, based on lambda-cyhalothrin, s-metolachlor, prochloraz and abamectin, Pilarquim has developed 4 major microcapsule series covering fungicide, insecticide, herbicide and seed treatment product.
