Best Agrolife launches two locally manufactured CTPR products


November 24 2022, New Delhi: Best Agrolife Limited (BAL) recently held a mega distributor meetup and launched two new CTPR-based formulations, Citigen and Vistara, in Pattaya, Bangkok.

Best Agrolife is the first agrochemical company in India to manufacture Technical CTPR locally. The meeting was exclusively reserved for distributors from Maharashtra. Mr. Raajan Kumar Ailawadhi, Executive Director, BAL and the entire marketing team of Best Agrolife Limited along with more than 170 distributors attended this event.

Vimal Alawadhi, Managing Director of Best Agrolife Ltd., says, “We raise the bar for innovation with every new product launch. Best Agro has invested heavily in improving its research and development capabilities. As is the case with each of our products, the new Citigen and Vistara offer highly effective and affordable solutions for controlling pests in agriculture. While on the one hand this will be a boon to farmers and improve their productivity, it will also provide our distributors and resellers with a marketing advantage.

CTPR (Chlorantraniliprole) products are widely used and its market size is over Rs. 2000 crore at present, totaling 8% of the pesticide market.

Chlorantraniliprole brands Citizen and Vistara

Citigen (Chlorantraniliprole 18.5 percent W/W SC) is a broad-spectrum insecticide with exceptional insecticidal efficacy, longer rainfastness and low mammalian toxicity. Besides sugar cane and rice, Citigen is highly recommended for pest control of cabbage, cotton, tomato, chilli, soybean, eggplant, pigeon pea, bengal gram, bengal gram, black, bitter gourd, okra, maize and groundnut crops. It acts on ballworms, stem borers, fruit borers, pod borers, stem flies, tobacco caterpillars and pod borers.

Vistara (Chlorantraniliprole 0.4 percent GR) prevents the accumulation of shoot borer and stem borer populations in paddy and sugarcane and protects growers against losses due to low crop yield and thereby maximizes the production. Due to its high insecticidal power and novel mode of action, it effectively controls pests resistant to other insecticides. Due to its low dosage, it is also environmentally safe.
