India Pesticides Limited, one of the fastest growing agro-chemical companies in terms of volume of technical manufacturing (“IPL”) has announced the launch of New Intermediate on May 30, 2022.

As per the filing, the company has launched first phase of the backward integration for Pretilachlor Technical of 2000 TPA.

"This will be manufactured in our existing facility at Sandila Plant, which will further safeguard us from any supply chain challenge of the intermediate which is largely imported. We are planning to expand it further in the FY 2022-23. The primarily application for the chemical is as herbicide for rice plantation. We anticipate a good market potential for this product. The process to manufacture was developed through our indigenous R&D facility & project engineering teams", said company on Tuesday.

The Company further added, this is the 6th molecule launched by us and is part of our earlier announced medium-term strategy of launching 8 new molecules.

Commenting on the launch, Anand Swarup Agarwal, Chairman, “I am pleased to announce the launch of first phase of backward integration of Pretilachlor Technical for which I would like to thank our R&D team who have worked towards developing efficient manufacturing process and execution by our inhouse engineering team. Furthermore, the work for second phase is expected to commence during later part of the year.

This is also a testament to our R&D capabilities and our ability to consistently find chemicals which can substitute and limit our dependence on imports. This further enhances our competitiveness in the Indian Market. This is also one of many initiatives that aligns to companies’ vision of “Make in India” and support domestic growth.”

At around 12:02 PM, India Pesticides was trading at Rs234.05 apiece up by Rs1 or 0.43% from its previous closing of Rs233.05 apiece on the BSE.
