Hydrocarbon fluids for crop protection

Meeting the challenge of feeding an estimated 7 billion people by the end of 2012 will require superior crop protection products that also meet regulatory and environmental requirements. Our reference portfolio of high-solvency hydrocarbon fluids is designed to help agricultural pesticide producers formulate products that are up to the challenge.

Solvesso™ fluid grades  (known under the ExxonMobil™ aromatic trade name in the U.S.) have proven use in crop protection formulations for decades.

The most widespread use of the heavy aromatic fluids is in emulsifiable concentrate formulations, where the fluid dissolves the active ingredient and acts as a carrier for formulation components.

Exxsol D™ fluid grades are also used in crop protection and spray oil applications. Worldwide manufacturing and distribution capabilities ensure that consistent, high-quality products are available where they are needed.
