New article: Improving the performance of microbial agrosolutions

BREAK-THRU® products enhance the performance of synthetic pesticides as spreaders, penetrants, antifoams, dispersants and emulsifiers. In the last years, Evonik has invested strongly to build specific know-how and expertise to handle microbial actives in our agro formulation laboratories.
