The agriculture industry relies on a variety of chemicals to enhance crop yield, protect plants from pests and diseases, and improve overall agricultural productivity. These chemicals can be broadly categorized into fertilizers, pesticides, and agrochemicals. Here are some key components in each category

  • Fertilizers
    Nitrogenous Fertilizers:
    Urea, Ammonium sulfate, Ammonium phosphate.
    Phosphatic Fertilizers:
    Single Super Phosphate (SSP), Triple Super Phosphate (TSP), Diammonium Phosphate (DAP).
    Potassic Fertilizers:
    Potassium chloride, Potassium sulfate.
    Complex Fertilizers:
    NPK combinations (Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium).
    Organic Fertilizers:
    Manure, Compost, Vermicompost.
  • Pesticides
    Chlorpyrifos, Imidacloprid, Malathion, Neem-based products.
    Glyphosate, 2,4-D, Paraquat.
    Mancozeb, Carbendazim, Copper-based fungicides.
    Zinc phosphide, Bromadiolone.
  • Agrochemicals
    Plant Growth Regulators:
    Gibberellic acid, Auxins, Cytokinins.
    Soil Conditioners:
    Gypsum, Lime, Humic acids.
    Biopesticides: Bio-fungicides, Bio-insecticides, Bio-nematicides.
  • Adjuvants
    Surfactants, Spreaders, Stickers.
  • Specialty Chemicals
    Zinc, Iron, Boron, Manganese.
    Agro Surfactants: Used in formulations to improve the spread and adhesion of pesticides.
  • Seed Treatment Chemicals
    Fungicidal Seed Treatments:
    Thiram, Captan, Metalaxyl.
    Insecticidal Seed Treatments:
    Clothianidin, Thiamethoxam.
  • Organic Farming Inputs
    Rhizobium, Azotobacter, Phosphorus-solubilizing bacteria.
    Organic Pesticides: Neem-based products, Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt).
