4-week online academy

Learn key techniques to flawlessly approach formulation design / Apply best practices to ensure robust and fit-for-purpose agrochemicals

Course Overview

Are you equipped with the correct knowledge to design your agrochemical formulations? If you want to produce safe, effective and robust agrochemical formulations, you need to approach your design­ with the final product and its purpose in mind. In doing so, you will need to answer the following design questions:

  • What is your customer’s needs?
  • What knowledge do you already have concerning this area?
  • What is the best way to design your experiments to gather all the necessary information?
  • Do you know how to transfer your design from the lab to manufacture ensuring consistent quality?

Incorporating these principles into your formulation design will help you produce a product that is both effective and competitive in the market.

This course will cover all the essential design principles you need to become a successful agrochemical formulator. With a combined experience of 30+ years in formulations, the course instructors provide you with the skills required to  overcome formulation design challenges.

Whether you are a new to formulation design or want to develop your skills, this course will familiarise you with best practice.
