BASF India : enters Indian Sugarcane crop protection market with a new Herbicide

  • Vesnit® Complete delivers effective and broad-spectrum control of post-emergent grasses & broad leaf weeds in Sugarcane.
  • Convenient formulation for long duration control & excellent crop safety
  • Also effective for usage in corn

Meerut, India – March 15, 2022 – Sugarcane farmers in India now have a new option for grasses & broadleaf weed control with an innovative herbicide, Vesnit® Complete launched today by BASF. The new solution empowers farmers with a whole new level of post-emergent weed control ensuring better yeild for their crop.

India is the second largest producer of Sugarcane in the world. However, the occurrence of various grasses & broad leaf weeds such as Echinochloa spp, Digitaria sangunalis, Dactyloctenium aegyptium, Chloris barbata, Eleusine indica, Amaranthus viridis. Parthenium hysterophorus etc is one of the key challenges faced by the Sugarcane farmers in India.

Vesnit® Complete is an innovative combination of Topramezone & Atrazine, two different modes of action and an inbuilt adjuvant which makes it unique in effectively controlling grasses & broadleaf weeds for longer duration. Vesnit® Complete also offers excellent safety to Sugarcane crop along with ease of application. In addition to Sugarcane, Vesnit® Complete is equally effective for controlling grasses & broadleaf weeds in corn field.

“Keeping Sugarcane & Corn fields weed free early in the season can have a major impact on crop yield. Using Vesnit® Complete as a post-emergent herbicide will help Indian farmers keep their fields weed free during that critical period.” said Rajendra Velagala, Business Director, Agricultural Solutions, South Asia, BASF. “Farming is the biggest job on earth.
