The new product offers 625grams/litre of the active ingredient versus the current benchmark of 540grams/litre, and it was the culmination of five years of intensive work at the companies Kwinana laboratory in WA.
The higher loading formulation promises reduced volumes of the product as well as packaging, labelling, transport and other logistics, which will be warmly welcomed by the industry.
