FMC India, an agricultural sciences company, announced today that it has launched a new insecticide Corprima. Powered by FMC’s world’s leading Rynaxypyr® insect control technology, Corprima™ will provide tomato and okra farmers across the country with superior crop protection against fruit borers, one of the bigger pain points for Indian farmers.
The innovative insecticide Corprima™ has been proven to deliver better returns on investment to farmers by having a longer duration pest control as well as enhanced flower and fruit retention leading to larger harvests of better quality. According to the Indian Institute of Vegetable Research, tomato farmers across the country lose up to 65 per cent of their yields to fruit borers every year. The infestation of this pest leads to flower dropping and poor plant health resulting in poor quality fruiting, thus adversely impacting crop yields.
Corprima™, powered by Rynaxypyr® active, promises to provide a superior and long-lasting protection from fruit borer pests which saves farmers’ time, costs and effort to protect their crops.
FMC India President, Mr. Ravi Annavarapu said, “The past year saw a record horticultural crop production in the country. However, every year, tomato and okra farmers incur heavy losses due to fruit borer pests, diseases and post-harvest losses amongst other factors. At FMC, we use innovation to solve the challenges faced by farmers by introducing sustainable products and solutions. The introduction of Corprima™ is a testimony to FMC’s commitment to bring novel solutions to meet farmers’ crop protection needs. I’m confident that Corprima™ will help tomato and okra farmers improve their incomes through higher yields of better quality.”
