Agrochemical company Insecticides (India) has launch Hachiman, a post-emergence herbicide that will stamp out both broad-leaf as well as narrow-leaf weeds. Hachiman is a product by Nissan Chemical, Japan, and marketed in India by Insecticides (India) as a product under its popular ‘Tractor Brand’.
“Weeds serve as an alternate host to pests in the field and weed management in pulses is essential to improve crop yield and ensure India’s way to a food secure future. The dual action Hachiman is the latest product in our kitty which is again a product of Nissan, Japan. We are looking forward to a good response from the farmers of states like Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana,” says Rajesh Aggarwal, MD, Insecticides (India).
“Hachiman has been tested to be safe for all types of pulses and is effective even when both broad-leaf and grassy weeds grow together. The herbicide moves both acropetally and basipetally and controls weeds effectively. Even if it rains two hours after spray, Hachiman will remain effective. The product will come with a detailed leaflet with instructions to use the herbicide in the vernacular languages,” says PC Pabbi, Sr VP, Insecticides (India).
