Insecticides (India) Ltd, a crop protection solutions company, and Nissan Chemical Corporation of Japan have launched Shinwa (a novel insecticide) and Izuki (a fungicide) for the Indian market.
Showcasing the products here on Monday, Rajesh Aggarwal, Managing Director of Insecticides (India), said that Shinwa will open the avenues for the company to a larger market in a variety of crops like brinjal, okra, chilli, tomato, cabbage and red gram.
“Shinwa is a novel insecticide that effectively controls the lepidopteran pests and Thrips in a variety of crops. Shinwa provides better control by quick knockdown effect and the duration of control is also better than other available insecticides,” he said.
Izuki is a unique broad-spectrum fungicide combination of two molecules with excellent prophylactic and curative properties. It protects paddy against diseases such as sheath blight and blast.
“Our partnership with Nissan began in 2012 and we have since launched four products — the Pulsor, Hakama, Kunoichi, and Hachiman. The two new additions make it six,” he said.
