The world today is a complex and changeable world, where new technologies are constantly emerging while the agricultural inputs industry will usher in great changes. The risk of new AIs research is growing; regulatory requirement is stricter; the problem of resistance of diseases, pests and weeds has become increasing severe; people’s concerns over quality and safety of agricultural products are increasing; and the pressure on the innovative and transformative development of agrochemical enterprises is increasing. To this end, while focusing on development of AIs, agrochemical enterprises have started to pay more attention to formulation and premium formulations with proprietary brand. Premium formulations are not only an important direction which guides the research and development of new agrochemicals, but are also a strategy of development to respond to the rising competition worldwide. In the foreseeable future, premium formulations are expected to lead the way of innovation of mainstream products and will bring about revolutionary changes in formulation.

To promote an innovative development of the agrochemical formulation industry chain worldwide and to facilitate academic exchange and technical cooperation, the 3rd Ag Formulation & Application Technology Congress (FAT2022), as hosted by AgroPages, is scheduled to take place in Hangzhou of China from 17 – 18 Nov., 2022.

The theme of the FAT 2022 session is “technology advancing and value reshaping,” focusing on the “pain points” and “difficulties” existing in the agrochemical formulation industry chain. Discussions will be held on industry policies, market dynamics, formulation design strategies, innovative technologies and products, production process engineering, product application practices and market opportunities as well as the impacts of price fluctuations of terminal formulations on the upstream and downstream industry chain. Discussions will also over the future development trend of the formulation industry, which will guide and promote upgrading and innovation of the formulation industry chain to enable the sustainable development of global agriculture.
