01 November 2023, New Delhi: Best Agrolife Ltd. announced that Its wholly-owned subsidiary, Seedlings India Private Limited, has been granted a 20-year patent by the Indian Patent Office-Government of India for its innovative creation, the “Synergistic Granular Herbicidal Composition for Paddy”. The company intends to introduce this one-shot herbicide in the upcoming Kharif season under the brand name “Orisulam” (Technical: Penoxasulam + Pyrazosulfuron + Byspyribac).

The newly patented herbicidal composition is a powerful and effective solution for addressing the challenges of Monocot and Dicot weeds in paddy crops. It offers a comprehensive strategy to combat weeds such as Echinochloa crusgalli, Echinochloa colonum, Ludwigia parviflora, Cyperus rotundus, Cyperus difformis, Cyperus iria, Fimbristylis miliacae, Monochoria vaginalis, Leptochloa chinensis, Panicum repens, Chenopodium album, Commelina benghalensis, and Eclipta alba.

This patent follows Best Agrolife’s recent success in securing another 20-year patent for their innovative “Synergistic Pesticidal Composition”, which includes two insecticides and a fungicide and offers an integrated approach to address critical challenges in rice cultivation. In addition to these breakthrough patents, Best Agrolife also made a pivotal shift in the conventional supply chain dynamics by forging a strategic partnership with Syngenta, a global leader in agriculture, to market Pyroxosulfone 85% WG herbicide under the brand name “Movondo”.

Mr. Vimal Kumar, Managing Director of Best Agrolife Ltd, expressed his enthusiasm for this milestone, stating, “Weed management has always been a critical factor in optimizing rice crop yields. Successful weed control is essential for obtaining optimum rice yields. We are delighted to receive this patent. It underscores our commitment to innovation and sustainable agriculture. This patent will further strengthen our herbicide portfolio and enable us to serve our farming community better.”

“This powerful single-shot herbicidal composition will provide a comprehensive solution for paddy farmers. This unique blend will offer enhanced weed control, reduced environmental impact, and improved crop safety, thus helping to increase yields and farmer income,” he further added.
