22 February 2024, New Delhi: Corteva Agriscience today announced the launch of Salibro™ nematicide in India. This innovative product, powered by Reklemel™ active, provides farmers with a targeted and environmentally friendly solution to protect their crops from damaging nematodes while preserving soil health.


Plant-parasitic nematodes are microscopic organisms found in soil that feed on the roots of horticultural crops such as capsicum, cucumber, tomato, and Brinjal. These nematodes are notoriously difficult to identify and control, they cause damage to the crops, affecting farmer’s productivity and profitability. With its unique formulation, Salibro™ delivers an effective kill of damaging nematodes while demonstrating high selectivity, sparing beneficial soil organisms essential for soil health.

Salibro™ is compatible with bacterial and fungal-feeding nematodes, as well as beneficial soil macrofauna, such as earthworms and soil mites, ensuring a balanced and thriving soil ecosystem. By preserving the delicate balance of soil biology, Salibro™ not only safeguards crop yields but also fosters sustainable agricultural practices.
