Sugarcane farmers in India now have a new option for grasses & broadleaf weed control with an innovative herbicide, Vesnit Complete launched today by BASF. The new solution empowers farmers with a whole new level of post-emergent weed control ensuring better yield for their crop.

India is the second-largest producer of Sugarcane in the world. However, the occurrence of various grasses & broadleaf weeds such as Echinochloa spp, Digitaria sangunalis, Dactyloctenium aegyptium, Chloris barbata, Eleusine indica, Amaranthus viridis. Parthenium hysterophorus etc is one of the key challenges faced by the Sugarcane farmers in India.

Vesnit Complete- The Combine Formulation

Vesnit Complete is an innovative combination of Topramezone & Atrazine, two different modes of action and an inbuilt adjuvant which makes it unique in effectively controlling grasses & broadleaf weeds for a longer duration. Vesnit Complete also offers excellent safety to Sugarcane crops along with ease of application. In addition to Sugarcane, Vesnit Complete is equally effective for controlling grasses & broadleaf weeds in cornfields.

Keeping Sugarcane & Cornfields weed-free early in the season can have a major impact on crop yield. Using Vesnit® Complete as a post-emergent herbicide will help Indian farmers keep their fields weed-free during that critical period,” said Rajendra Velagala, Business Director, Agricultural Solutions, South Asia, BASF.
