Agrochemical manufacturer Best Agrolife Ltd (BAL) has secured registration for the indigenous manufacturing of Defender, a groundbreaking formulation tailored for paddy cultivation.

The Central Insecticides Board and Registration Committee (CIBRC) has granted registration to Seedlings India Pvt Ltd, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Best Agrolife. Branded as Defender, this innovative formulation combines Pymetrozine 30%, Dinotefuran 10%, and Pyraclostrobin 20%, providing dual-action protection against insect pests and fungal diseases in paddy crops.

Defender significantly enhances crop health and productivity, offering four times stronger protection against fungal diseases such as Early Blight, Frog eye leaf spot, Alternaria leaf spot, and Alternaria leaf blight compared to conventional solutions. Furthermore, it effectively eradicates Brown Planthopper (BPH), a major threat to paddy crops, ensuring improved yields and crop resilience.

BAL is poised to commence commercial production and sales of Defender from May 2024. With an estimated annual business size of 150 crores, BAL anticipates generating revenue of approximately 80 to 100 crores initially, with gradual increases expected each year.

This achievement underscores BAL's commitment to driving innovation in agriculture and empowering farmers with advanced solutions. Defender exemplifies this commitment, providing farmers with a potent tool to overcome challenges and achieve success in paddy cultivation
