Pune, September 2023: Leading agrochemical company Dhanuka Agritech Limited has introduced a new herbicide ‘Tizom’ that will help farmers in controlling weeds in sugarcane crop and enhance farm profitability from Sugarcane cultivation.
Introduced in collaboration with Nissan Chemical Corporation, Japan, ‘Tizom’ is a groundbreaking herbicide whose unique composition and properties promise to revolutionize weed control in sugarcane farming. Two key active ingredients of ‘Tizom’- Halosulfuron Methyl 6% + Metribuzin 50% WG – provide an effective solution for controlling a wide range of weeds, including narrow leaf weeds, broadleaf weeds and Cyperus rotundus. Thus, it plays a pivotal role in increasing the productivity of sugarcane crop.
Commenting on the introduction of Tizom, Mr. Rahul Dhanuka, Joint Managing Director, Dhanuka Agritech Limited said, “Tizom will further strengthen our robust sugarcane portfolio and will be extremely helpful to sugarcane farmers. The introduction of Tizom is also a testament of our continuous endeavour to offer the best solutions to farmers and help enhance their income.”
“We at Dhanuka have aggressive growth plans in the current financial year and we plan to introduce a slew of products lined up during the remainder of the current fiscal year,” he added.
As part of Dhanuka’s unwavering focus on serving the needs of Indian farmers and strengthening its position in the crop care product segment, following the launch of 6 biologicals, 2 herbicides and 1 insecticide, Tizom is 10th product launched in this financial year.
One of the major advantages of Tizom is that it targets and eliminates weeds while leaving sugarcane crops unharmed. Moreover, Tizom offers prolonged weed control, allowing farmers to enjoy a weed-free environment for an extended duration.
Throwing more light on the benefits that Tizom brings to the table, Mr. Manoj Varshney, National Marketing Head of Dhanuka Agritech Limited said, “The selectiveness is crucial for protecting the sugarcane plants from weeds and ensuring optimal growth and yield. Such a unique offering is the need of the Indian farmers and we at Dhanuka are determined to provide noble solutions to farmers.”
Mr. Amit Mishra, Senior Portfolio Manager for Herbicides at Dhanuka too expressed similar thoughts and said that Tizom would eliminate a major obstacle for Indian sugarcane farmers, and may simplify crop management and enhance productivity.
