FMC India, a pioneer in agricultural sciences, today announced the launch of its latest product, Entazia biofungicide, a revolutionary biological crop protection product formulated with Bacillus subtilis.

Entazia provides farmers with a powerful and sustainable tool to protect their crops from fungi while maintaining environmental integrity.

This innovative product leverages the natural capabilities of Bacillus subtilis to control bacterial leaf blight, one of the most serious diseases of rice. By activating the crop’s defense system against plant pathogens, Entazia biofungicide acts to prevent and control bacterial leaf blight, while staying harmless to natural predators and parasites.

The biological product promotes natural pest defense by utilizing the naturally occurring Bacillus subtilis to establish a robust line of defense against bacterial leaf blight. By fostering a healthy plant microbiome, it bolsters plants' resilience to stress factors and contributes to overall growth and vigor. Entazia biofungicide can be applied in an integrated pest management program with FMC’s biostimulants and synthetic fungicides for additional plant benefits.

“FMC takes pride in delivering a crop protection solution that embodies our dedication to sustainable agriculture. Entazia biofungicide exemplifies our resolve to provide farmers with tools that not only ensure their productivity but also contribute to a greener, more balanced agricultural ecosystem,” said Ravi Annavarapu, President, FMC India.

“FMC India remains steadfast in our pursuit of excellence and innovation, and we are confident that this new product will contribute to the advancement and development of biological solutions within India's agricultural landscape."

The company says it will continue to promote the use of innovative, safe and sustainable solutions which complement its world-class synthetic solutions.
