Plant Protection

The world’s population is increasing, and with it the need for qualitatively better food. Plant Protection has thus become indispensable as it secures the valuable yield by giving the appropriate protection from the time of planting the seed until the Crop harvesting stage. During its life cycle, a crop will encounter many pests and diseases that can even destroy an entire harvest: Insects, Mites, Weeds, Fungi, Virus and Bacteria.

Nagarjuna is one of the leading suppliers of plant protection products in India. Our goal is to secure harvests for farmers and protect the environment with the well being of all. We offer a complete spectrum of plant protection products that are Selective, Effective at low concentrations, Environmental friendly, Crop specific and Affordable. Nagarjuna has a good range of required Insecticides, Fungicides, Herbicides and Miticides, which is one of the key offerings as in the case with Nutrition, with Pest Management Services also playing a crucial role.
