Alpha Picoline in Fertilizers and Crop Protection
Alpha Picoline has many applications as an intermediate for agricultural active ingredients in herbicides, fungicides, and nitrogen stabilizers.
Nitrogen stabilizers for fertilizers help prevent degradation by inhibiting specific parts of the nitrogen cycle, keeping the nutrient available to the growing plant. Fertilizer can be the most expensive crop input and nitrogen stabilizers can increase profit potential while decreasing waste or loss of nitrogen. Alpha picoline is the key raw material for leading nitrogen stabilizer products.
Alpha picoline is a building block for many herbicide and fungicide products. These products are used to control unwanted weeds, brush, and damaging fungus to boost productivity and help feed growing populations.
