Authors: Grimbs S
Software: ADMET Predictor®

Importance of crop protection

  • Significant yield losses from weeds, diseases, and pests necessitate crop protection
  • Key pest categories include chewing, sucking, and soil-based pests
  • Crop protection molecules must reach target

Goal: increase efficacy by increase systemicity – pKa as a major driver
