Hyderabad: Producer and marketer of bio-stimulants and other specialty nutrients, Valagro launched two new products – Opifol and YieldOn for the Indian market. The solution aims to improve the quality and productivity of row crops, said Luca Fornara, country manager, Valagro. The products were launched nationally in Hyderabad which is the base for India operations for the Italy-based company.
“India leads in the world in terms of acreage in rice cultivation, but its yield is 20 per cent below the world average. 40 million hectares of rice is grown and it still doesn’t meet food demand which is constantly growing. And the farmer’s income is less than their potential. With these two products the average yield will grow by 15-20 per cent,” Fornara informed.
