Godrej Agrovet unveils Hanabi to control mites in apple orchards in Kashmir

Developed in collaboration with Japan’s Nissan Chemical Corporation, Hanabi features patented chemistry that provides longer control duration.

Godrej Agrovet Limited, a leading Indian agribusiness company, has introduced Hanabi, an advanced pesticide for controlling mites in apple orchards. The company mentioned that developed in collaboration with Japan’s Nissan Chemical Corporation, Hanabi features patented chemistry that provides longer control duration and faster knockdown activity, translating into better yields for farmers.

Rajavelu NK, CEO of Godrej Agrovet Limited’s Crop Protection Business, commented on Hanabi’s benefits and efficacy, “In Kashmir, where the annual export of 1.8 million metric tons of apples sustains livelihoods and contributes to 75 per cent of India’s apple production, we understand the deep impact of our agricultural practices. While abiotic climatic challenges remain beyond our control, the introduction of Hanabi demonstrates our commitment to addressing biotic factors that threaten this thriving industry.”

“Protecting the apple crop by eradicating mites during their entire lifecycle, Hanabi’s quick-action formula starts immediately after spraying. Providing 80 per cent knockdown within 3-4 hours, Hanabi is a reliable and efficient pest control solution. Additionally, its insecticidal activity has proven secondary efficacy against thrips and whiteflies. We are confident that this innovative solution will revolutionize apple farming in the valley,” he added.
