Plant protectants are necessary to protect plants from pests that could compromise plant growth (insects, fungal diseases, viruses, bacteria and weeds). Apart from additives, plant protectants usually consist of one or more active substances which give them the desired properties.
- Fungicides protect plants from diseases which affect production rate and quality or, in the worst case, could completely destroy the crop.
- Herbicides reduce the growth of weeds which affect the production rate and the quality of the crop.
- Insecticides protect plants against insects. Here, the pests can absorb the insecticide directly or indirectly through their food.
As a rule, plant protectants are extremely temperature-sensitive substances that place correspondingly high demands on machine and plant engineering.
