Forge ahead into new markets

Battelle solves agrochemical formulation challenges as a global leader in new innovative formulation technologies for synthetic chemistries and biological/microbial crop protection products. We complement our formulation development excellence with the test and evaluation/assessment of new application technologies, such as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and precision agriculture, to reduce spray drift and to efficiently use crop protection products.

How We Can Help



  • Our know-how and IP improve and significantly extend the shelf-life, field efficacy, and ease of application of a wide range of microbes for crop-based protectants or biostimulants.
  • Our experts in agrochemical formulation, advanced materials polymer chemistry and biology find solutions that solve problems for crop protection.
  • We provide microbial formulation development, production & processing and regulatory support to enhance on-shelf and on-seed stability.


  • Our innovative microencapsulation technology can be adapted for a wide range of products
  • We have an IP portfolio and the expertise needed to provide solutions for formerly incompatible chemistries and ingredients to encapsulate a single shelf-stable product that can be designed and released as needed.

Synthetic Chemistry Formulation

  • Our 40+ years of expertise formulating crop protection products is complemented with internal research and development and cross-disciplinary expertise.
  • We provide experience with all classes of chemistries, a full range of formulation types, seed coatings/dressings, and formulating microbial plant protection products.

Genomics, Proteomics, and Metabolomics

  • Our technical subject matter experts fundamentally understand molecular, cellular and biological pathway organisms to support your product R&D
  • Our breadth of services runs deep with decades of biological, bioscience and agrochemical formulation solutions that provide a full-service solution compared to competitor contract research organizations (CROs).
  • We provide unparalleled full service support with commercially focused endpoints in mind.
