For years, Sinochem Crop Care has been helping Chinese farmers to treat their plants with high-quality products and professional technology. The company has played an indispensable role in Chinese agriculture. At present, the Company has its own operation integrated with research, production and marketing.

The company aims at promoting Chinese agriculture in an economic, precise and environmentally friendly way in order to bring a new era of rural revitalization.
Application and development of auxiliaries to be divided into wet and adhering auxiliary of excess water consumption and time- and labor-saving auxiliary of ultra-low water consumption
According to Momentive, the size of auxiliary’s surface tension can have an influence on the effect of pesticide. Anti-drift and anti-evaporation auxiliary of super expansion, high coverage and low surface tension with highly efficient small dose can improve the pesticide effect in a time- and labor-saving way. As a result, based on the current situation and the future of Pesticide application technology, Momentive and Sinochem Crop Care reach an agreement when it comes to the application and development of the new auxiliaries, which should be first divided into two types: wet and adhering auxiliary of excess water consumption and time- and labor-saving auxiliary of ultra-low water consumption. Over time, the medication habits may be changed and highly efficient plant protection technology may be applied.
