“Another highly destructive pest that devastates corn crops (up to 30 per cent damage every year) is the fall armyworm. The company has developed a formulation to effectively combat this menace for the corn crops. Two patented fungicides have been launched to improve crop health and yields: 1) For long-lasting control of a widely occurring disease (fungal attack called sheath blight) in rice; and, 2) An innovative fungicide solution that offers both contact (Surface) and systemic action (absorbed by crop for long-lasting control) for comprehensive disease control in potato, grapes, and tomato crops,” the company said.

“Coromandel International has also launched five new generics, which include three herbicides. With these introductions, the company’s solution portfolio provides comprehensive crop protection solutions for various agricultural needs of the Indian farmers who are facing significant challenges controlling pest attacks,” the company informed.
