Insecticides (India) Limited (IIL), a prominent player in the field of crop protection and nutrition, has launched Mission, an innovative insecticide designed to combat various lepidopteran pests in crops such as paddy, sugarcane, soybean, and vegetables. This cutting-edge solution, available in granule and liquid formulations, boasts a distinctive mode of action that effectively tackles pest resistance to other insecticides. Moreover, Mission’s formulation ensures the safety of beneficial insects vital to crop health, making it an exceptional choice that enhances productivity for farmers.
Previously imported, Mission is now being manufactured within India as part of IIL’s “Make in India” initiative, benefiting small and marginal farmers nationwide.
