Keeping in mind the need of farmers to control all types of weeds in soybean as well as other pulses crops during the ongoing Kharif season, Insecticides (India) Ltd., a leading agrochemical company has launched ‘Hachiman’, a newpost emergence herbicide that will stamp out both broad-leaf and narrow leaf weeds. 

Hachiman is a product by Nissan Chemical, Japan and is marketed in the country by Insecticides (India) Ltd. as a product under its popular ‘Tractor Brand’. 

Rajesh Aggarwal, Managing Director, Insecticides (India) Ltd. said, “Pulses are an important crop as they are one of the most common sources of dietary protein. Among the various biotic stresses to the pulse cultivation, weeds cause severe yield loss. Pulses grow slowly in the initial days when weeds grow faster than the crop and smother it. About 84% of the pulse cultivation area is rainfed where the crop is grown in Kharif season in combination with non-legume crops, forcing pulses to such biotic stresses. Weeds also 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 good response from the farmers of states like Maharashtra, MP, Andhra Pradesh & Telangana.”

P.C. Pabbi, Sr. Vice President, Insecticides (India) Limited. said, “Hachiman has been tested to be safe for all types of pulses and is effective even when bothbroad-leaf and grassyweeds grow together. The herbicide moves both acropetally and basipetally & 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”.
