Rallis India introduces 'Mark Plus' herbicide for effective weed control in soybean and groundnut crops

Rallis India, a Tata Enterprise and a leader in the Indian agri-inputs industry has launched a new herbicide called ‘Mark Plus’ nationwide. This herbicide offers effective weed control for crops like groundnut and soybean, providing broad-spectrum management. Initially available in Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, and Gujarat, Mark Plus will be rolled out across India to other key markets, the company announced today.

“Mark Plus is a potent herbicide targeting the ‘pre-emergence’ segment for soybean and groundnut crops. Developed through advanced research, it features a new formulation with two active ingredients being introduced in India for the first time. Mark Plus operates through dual mechanisms: it inhibits ALS (an enzyme essential for weed growth) and disrupts microtubule formation (critical for cell division in weeds). This dual action ensures comprehensive and long-lasting weed control,” Rallis India said.
