IIL’s path-breaking insecticide Encounter helps fight lepidopteron and sucking pest together in important crops like tea, pulses, cotton, and vegetables. Encounter has certain unique advantages like it can be sprayed on crops evenly and with same consistency throughout as it disperses in water easily. It can be sprayed on all forms and stages of crop. Even if it rains four hours after spray, it will still be effective. Encounter has unique ‘Translaminar’ action because of which it works on both sides of the leaf to control the insects.
IIL’s equally unique product Aikido is again an insecticide. This product is launched in technical collaboration with Nihon Nohyaku, Japan. This product gives complete protection from brown plant hoppers (BPH), white plant hoppers (WBPH) and leaf folder which destroy about 25-30% percent of paddy crop in the country every year. The use of Aikido also exhibits ovicidal action by reducing the egg laying ability of BPH and the nymphs are not able to hatch properly from the treated eggs. Other than paddy, AIKIDO is also found effective on vegetables. Thus farmers can get much higher yields from their produce by protecting their crops with Aikido.
Sofia is again very useful broad spectrum fungicide by IIL. It gives complete protection from various diseases in different crops for farmers in the country. It is especially useful for crops of paddy, grapes, chilly, mango, cucumber, rose, tomato, peas & cumin. It gives Broad Spectrum Control against diseases in crops.
Last but not the least; Hercules is an insecticide that protects the all important cash crop-Cotton from sucking pest like white fly, Jassids & Thrips. Hercules has the ability to protect the leaves of crops from both sides and hence controls sucking insects from underneath the leaves also because of its ‘Translaminar’ action. It has unique ‘Vapor Action’ which help the product to reach the insect in high density crops for better and effective control.
