In the last few years, the Pink Bollworm has been a major cause of infections in the cotton crop leading to huge losses to cotton farmers and absence of available supply within India. To address this rather serious problem, Natco Pharma, an established pharma company based out of Hyderabad, will shortly launch its first green label Pheromone product. This agrochemical is used to manage the Pink Bollworm in cotton crop during Kharif season.

Natco Pharma is actually a Hyderabad based generic drug manufacturer. However, just two years back, Natco Pharma had diversified into the agrochemicals as a strategy to diversify its product basket and also to tap the huge opportunities to be thrown by a more professional approach to agriculture in India. This response to the Pink Bollworm in cotton crop will be one of the first major product launches in agrochemicals coming from Natco Pharma.

In addition, this will also be the first pheromone-based indigenous product for mating disruption to prevent the rampant proliferation of the Pink Bollworm. It was this proliferation that had created a problem and posed a major challenge to cotton farmers in the last few years. The product Natmate PBW will help farmers and seed producers to design and develop an Insect Resistance Management or IRM Plan for cotton.
