Peptech Biosciences Limited (ISO 9001:2015) is pleased to announce that the Central Insecticide Board and Registration Committee (CIBRC) has approved the grant of registration for the technical indigenous manufacture of Glufosinate ammonium 50% TC, u/s 9(4).
The company has received the final approval from the registration committee in the 443rd RC meeting held on December 22, 2022.
Glufosinate-ammonium is an herbicide. It is a synthetic organophosphate glutamine synthetase inhibitor and neurotoxin. It is characterized as a volatile white to light yellow crystalline solid that is highly soluble. It has a slightly pungent odour. It is used to eliminate unwanted vegetation, particularly weeds and grasses, in various crops. It can be exposed through inhalation, ingestion, or contact.
Farmers rely on Glufosinate-ammonium because it only affects the parts of the plant where it is applied, ensuring a high level of crop safety. It is effective against a wide variety of weeds, removing the need to apply multiple herbicides to control different weeds on a single crop. Its distinct mode of action makes it ideal for use in rotation with other herbicides to reduce weed resistance.
In 2020, the weed control segment held a significant share in the Glufosinate ammonium market. The Glufosinate ammonium market size is forecast to reach US$592.6 million by 2026 after growing at a CAGR of 9.8% during 2021–2026.
“We are delighted to receive CIBRC approval for Glufosinate Ammonium Technical.” “Aside from traditional molecules, the company has been hard at work on innovative products that will ensure sustainable farming, green growth, as well as good profitability for farmers,” says Suresh Chand Singla, Managing Director. Peptech Biosciences Limited’s portfolio has expanded to include crop enhancers, crop protectors, and crop or soil nutrition. Peptech Biosciences Ltd. already holds CIBRC licenses for more than 195 molecules, with many more in the works. The FCO has granted the company licenses for over 50 fertilizers and biostimulants.
