From the key active ingredients to the final pesticide product, particle size is known to have an important role in the residual period, the biological activity, and the stability properties of pesticides. For this reason, measuring the particle size distribution plays a vital role in determining the quality of pesticides during QC inspection. In this application note, particle size distributions of suspension concentrate samples were measured by the laser diffraction method. Typical size values and size distribution curves were compared to evaluate the quality of pesticide samples and to help to optimize the milling process and produce a pesticide that is fit for the specific application.
