AGROSCIENCE

Fields of brilliant yellow oilseed mustard, rice swaying gently in the breeze, juicy apple – healthy plants and produce are visible proof to farmers of a job well done. And we help them with our knowledge, experience and products.

CRISTOL range of agrochemicals are designed to solve pressing crop production problems, boosting agriculture productivity to maximum sustainable levels to keep pace with the growing needs of our world’s rapidly expanding population. We are committed to increasing crop productivity through higher yields and better varieties.

CRISTOL product majorly comprises of:

ANIONIC SURFACTANTS

Product DescriptionThese anionic surfactants are amine salts or metal salts of alkylbenzene sulfonic acids. The alkyl chain is generally linear unless specified.

POLYMERIC SURFACTANTS

Product DescriptionThese are medium molecular weight polymers with multiple branching used for difficult emulsification and dispersion in aqueous and non-aqueous systems
Use & ApplicationThese products are specially useful in formulating more challenging crop protection formulations. Emulsion systems which are prone to instability and suspensions where high loading is required without increasing viscosity beyond acceptable limits will find these products useful.
