Plants require many different nutrients for optimum growth. When the most essential of these nutrients, including nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium, are hard to obtain from the soil, they can be supplied by fertilizers which help the plants generate the new cells that are necessary for growth. Our Agrocer® range provides pigments, pigment preparations, and dyes to color fertilizers helping to differentiate qualities and applications.
Agrocer powder pigments are easily dispersible, exhibit a high color strength and show good hiding power to achieve excellent coverage on various types of seeds. The brand names of the Agrocer products include the color and a three-digit figure based on the associated color index. Agrocer powder pigments are the preferred solution for seed treatment pesticide formulations that require high pigment loading and where no additional water can be introduced into the formulation. In order to utilize the full potential of these products, the pigments need to be dispersed properly using appropriate equipment.
Agrocer® is our brand for pigments and pigment preparations for seed coloration. The coloration of seeds treated with pesticides is mandatory in most legislations to avoid misuse. Besides this important safety feature, there are other key aspects to coloration – such as individual shades for branding, identification of specific treatments, easy monitoring of uniformity and consistency of seed treatments, or value perception and cosmetic appeal for high-value seeds.
Sanolin® and Duasyn® are Clariant’s brand names for water-soluble dyes. These are well suited for the coloration of water-based agrochemical formulations.
