Best Agrolife to launch under patent ‘Nemagen’ insecticide in July following FIM registration

New Delhi: Best Agrolife (BAL), one of the leading manufacturers of speciality and patented agrochemicals in India, has announced the launching of an under-patent formulation, with the brand name ‘Nemagen’ in July this year. The company has received the 9(3) Formulation Indigenous Manufacture (FIM) registration for the product, BAL said.

In recent years, lepidopteran pests have expanded their host range and developed resistance to existing pesticides. Consequently, these pests have caused 30-50 per cent of crop damage and substantial economic losses, highlighting an urgent need for advanced insecticide solutions.

“With the expansion of lepidopteran pests causing significant crop damage, Nemagen addresses a critical need in the agricultural market, promising substantial demand. The market size for this segment is approximately ₹6300 crore and Best Agrolife will capture a share of ₹500 crore out of it in the first two years. Its versatility allows for application at various stages of crop growth, making it suitable for use on vegetables, field crops, fruit crops, and pulses,” the agrochemical manufacturer said.
