Best Agrolife Limited to Introduce an Innovative Patented Herbicidal Composition ‘Shot Down’

Best Agrolife Limited (BAL), a prominent agrochemical company in India, proudly announces the introduction of a patented groundbreaking synergistic herbicidal composition. The novel composition comprising Haloxyfop, Imazethapyr, and Butylated Hydroxy is expected to revolutionise soybean cultivation by providing an all-encompassing solution to control a broad spectrum of weeds. The product will be launched nationwide under the brand name Shot Down.

Shot Down addresses a critical gap in the market, offering a one-shot solution for the simultaneous control of sedges, broad-leaved, and narrow-leaved weeds. Unlike existing options that may require multiple sprays or intensive manual weeding, Shot Down stands out as a selective herbicide that eliminates weeds without compromising crop yield or quality. Its incorporation of antioxidants enhances crop safety by mitigating potential oxidative stress.

BAL emphasised the product as an outcome of its focus on R&D and extensive field trials. Shot Down has demonstrated its potential as a single-spray solution, reducing the need for multiple applications and the farmers expenditure.

BAL stands as a trailblazer in agricultural R&D, establishing itself as a company of Patent Power. After Ronfen and Tricolor, the addition of Shot Down to its portfolio reinforces the commitment to agricultural innovation and increasing farmer satisfaction. With a robust pipeline of future patent molecules, Best AgroLife Ltd. remains at the forefront of agricultural solutions for continued value growth.

Furthermore, Seedlings India Pvt. Ltd, a wholly-owned subsidiary of BAL, has obtained approval from the Central Insecticides Board & Registration Committee (CIB & RC) for the indigenous manufacturing of another under-patent formulation featuring Trifloxystrobin, Thiamethoxam, and Thiophanate Methyl. This one-shot solution is also poised to revolutionise Indian agriculture by effectively controlling insects and fungal diseases, leading to enhanced crop yields. BAL is planning for a nationwide launch in April 2024 under the brand name of Warden Extra.
