It is well known that, a pesticide adjuvant is substance that can be added at will, but it is separated from the pesticide formulation, which will improve the pesticide's desired effect. Common pesticide adjuvants include synergists, penetrants, sticking agents, wetting agents, etc. An adjuvant can be used as sticking agents adhering pesticide on the area where pesticide is effective. An adjuvant can be used as penetrants changing the epidermal layer of the leaf surface to let pesticide permeate. An adjuvant can attract targeted pests to the pesticide as when it is used as food for the pest in baits.
On domestic pesticide retail market, pesticide formulations are always sold together with pesticide adjuvant in an extra small-package. Usually, a conjoint package contains a primary pesticide product and pesticide adjuvant in a small package. Sellers often call the pesticide adjuvant in a small package as synergist. Actually, most of the packages of pesticide adjuvant do not provide its chemical ingredients.
current regulations on pesticide do not require the ingredients of
pesticide adjuvants in an extra small package shold be registered. In
addition, its ingredients are not sampled by
pesticide inspection. An insider disclosed that some manufacturers
will adopt conjoint packages for the purpose of adding some hidden ingredients
or highly toxic ingredients in pesticide adjuvant in a small package
in order to avoid being inspected. The adjuvants in extra small packages have
become a commonly used cover of pesticide producers' illegal act. But
few cases have been investigated in China in recent years. The
management of pesticide adjuvants in extra small packages is a blind spot
of additives monitor. China
