27 December 2022, New Delhi: Insecticides (India) Limited (IIL) launched a new fungicide ‘Stunner’ to combat Downy Mildew disease in grapes.
Stunner (Technical: Cyazofamid 34.5% SC) is a broad-spectrum fungicide. The product will bring relief to the farmers, particularly for the production of grapes as huge losses in the form of mortality of the plant ranging from 20% to 80% are incurred by farmers due to Downy Mildew fungal disease.
Mr. Rajesh Aggarwal, Managing Director, Insecticides (India) Ltd. said, “This is the first time that this technical and formulation is being manufactured in India. Owing to the requirement of a fungicide for successful grape cultivation, our farmers were mainly dependent on imported fungicide formulations to date. However, being a firm believer in the ‘Make in India’ initiative, we took this step, and here we are with Stunner in hand for the first time in India. Stunner is an effective fungicide for Downy mildew disease in grapes,”
“The potential market for the product will be from Western Maharashtra, mainly the districts of Nashik, Baramati, Sangli, Narayangaon, Solapur & Satara. We are elated that this unique formulation would be a big relief to the farmers who were struggling with the disease of Downy Mildew. Stunner works by activating the defense mechanism of the plant against the fungus.” added Mr. Sanjay Vats, Vice President, Insecticides (India) Limited.
“IIL has a strong footprint in the Maharashtra Market and our products like Sofia, Monocil, Hercules, Lethal Gold are popular among the farming community. With the launch of new products like Stunner, Shinwa, and Izuki, we will be able to provide the complete solution to the farmers within their reach.” Mentioned Mr. N. B. Deshmukh, DGM, Marketing, Insecticides (India) Limited.
