Muttenz/Switzerland — Tamisolve NxG was developed for the global plant protection sector, for use in plant growth regulators, biological control agents, herbicides, fungicides, and insecticides. Under this exclusive agreement, Clariant will globally market and sell Tamisolve NxG under their trade name, Genagen NBP. Combining their resources and expertise, the two companies seek to bring Genagen NBP to the forefront of the agrochemical field, the partners announced. The collaboration is to deliver significant business benefits to agrochemical formulators and end customers alike.

In recent years, Clariant has made significant strides in the agrochemical market: In addition to expanding its portfolio of crop solutions, in 2017, the company announced its investment in an R&D greenhouse that houses opportunities for real-world crop protection testing and advances in future solutions. With a lack of effective, low-toxicity crop protection solutions on the market, Genagen NBP is a powerful, best-in-class water miscible solvent with excellent toxicity labeling for agrochemical formulations, the company claims. The dipolar aprotic solvent works well in a variety of different applications thanks to its solvency power and water miscibility. According to the Swiss manufacturer, it is a safer alternative to commonly used dipolar aprotic solvents.
