Discover the best of both worlds with nature-based agricultural polymers

The agricultural industry continues to face unprecedented pressures regarding the ingredients used for crop management and their impact on the environment. This is powering demand for more natural (or naturally derived) adjuvants that are also water-soluble.


IFF’s Industrial Solutions has harnessed its deep expertise in regulated markets, such as food and pharma, to deliver on the promise of greener crop protection formulations that don’t compromise on performance. Our broad polymer family brings multiple, unique performance attributes, including suspension, emulsion stabilization, AI crystal growth inhibition, thickening, gelatin, encapsulation, film-forming, drift control, rain fastness and binding and disintegration properties. However, we’re not limited to crop protection. We also provide adjuvants for natural growth inhibitors, other crop treatment products, fertilizers, and more.


Learn more about how our technical support and leading polymer portfolio can help you to develop, optimize and manufacture crop protection products that are better for the planet.

Key applications
  • Liquid concentrates (water and oil-based)
  • Solid formulations (e.g., granules)
  • Controlled-release formulations
  • Coatings (e.g., seed coatings)
