Gowan Company, LLC launched an improved formulation of Aza-Direct biopesticide. Aza-Direct contains the active ingredient azadiractin, which is extracted from the seed of the neem tree.

Azadiractin-based products are susceptible to degradation once formulated and packaged. The result is a time-sensitive burden for growers to use these products. Gowan Company chemists seized the opportunity and set out to develop a superior product by means of stabilizing and improving the formulation. The project started with Gowan formulation chemists identifying the root cause of degradation and replacing the infringing components with more stable components. With the new components in place, the improved formulation proved to be highly superior in all field performance trials.
