09 January 2023, New Delhi: Best Agrolife Limited has been granted registration for the indigenous manufacturing of Propaquizafop u/s 9(3) by the Central Insecticides Board & Registration Committee in the 443rd meeting. With this Best Agrolife Limited (BAL) will become the first Indian agrochemical company to manufacture Propaquizafop Technical in India.
Propaquizafop is a herbicide used for the post-emergence control of a wide range of annual and perennial grasses in various broadleaf crops such as soybean, cotton, pulses, sunflower, other field crops, vegetables, fruit trees, vineyards, sugarbeet, oilseed rape, and forestry. As a selective and systemic herbicide, it controls weeds in all the stages of their development. Environment-friendly and safe to beneficial insects and mammals Propaquizafop is quickly absorbed by the leaves and translocated from the foliage to the growing points of the leaves and roots of the sprayed weeds.
Propaquizafop herbicide is of utmost importance for the Indian agricultural community as it effectively controls weeds in several broad-leaf crops. Propaquizafop has a market size of Rs. 350 crores in India and Best AgroLife will focus on utilizing this opportunity to the maximum. Other than removing the import dependency for Propaquizafop Technical, the company will also focus on developing new Propaquizafop combination products through research and development and getting them patented. Since Propaquizafop is also popular in the global herbicide market the company will look forward to its export aspect in the future.
Mr. Vimal Alawadhi, Managing Director, of Best AgroLife said, “BAL has kept the ball of innovation and progress rolling this year and it is all because of our unwavering focus on research & development. Other than introducing five new products namely Axeman, Ronfen (patented ternary insecticide), Reveal Tombo, and Warden BAL also became the first Indian agrochemical company to manufacture CTPR (market size of more than Rs. 2800 crore) technical indigenously by launching Citigen and Vistara. We also received the patent for the first-of-its-kind fungicidal composition of Cyazofamid, Dimethomorph, and Difenoconazole (Market Size Rs. 350 crores) and registration for the indigenous manufacturing of Pyroxasulfone technical (Market Size Rs. 450 Crore),” said
