Dhanuka Agritech launches new insecticide DEFEND®

30 June 2023, New Delhi: Dhanuka Agritech Ltd. has strengthened its crop care portfolio by introducing a new insecticide DEFEND®.

DEFEND® contains Triflumezopyrim 10% SC and gives complete protection from hoppers. Pyraxalt™ active, the active ingredient of DEFEND® insecticide inhibits the neurotransmission in affected insects, thus controlling their spread. DEFEND® gives immediate protection from first-generation Brown Plant Hopper (BPH) and White Backed Plant Hopper (WBPH) in just one application on paddy. It gives effective control on the different life stages of the insect.

With this new introduction, Dhanuka Agritech is optimistic to augment its position in the crop care product segment. Dhanuka Agritech earlier launched two selective herbicides, Mesotrax and Implode in the Q1 FY2023-24. It also diversified its crop care range with the introduction of BiologiQ, a range of sustainable solutions developed with the fusion of traditional science and new-age agriculture practices.
