Godrej Agrovet launches new cotton herbicide: Godrej Agrovet launched Maxxcott– a Pre-emergent herbicide that controls most of the major weeds of cotton from day one, giving crop weed free growth period of 25-30 days thereby translating into superior weed control and low cost of weed management as compared to conventional methods.
Cotton farming has always been labour intensive, a fact that is known to many. However, due to low awareness of nuances in technology and reliance on manual/mechanical weed management, marginal farmers struggle with low productivity.
The growth of weeds during the early stages of the crop poses a major problem since they compete for vital nutrients. This can lead to the cotton plant getting stressed due to crop weed competition. A stressed plant means reduced growth or yield that might not meet the farmer’s expectations.
Mr. Rajavelu NK, CEO of CPB, Godrej Agrovet Ltd. Maxxcott is Pre Emergent herbicide, which is completely safe on cotton crops, checks weed competition during the critical period of crop growth & effectively controls both broad-leaved and narrow-leaved weeds from the day of spraying, which results in healthier crops & higher productivity.
It also offers a long duration of control, which in turn bestows peace of mind and a better economy to the user.
