TAMMA – The Knight Against Crop Eating Insects!
Today, the global market of crop protection consists of a hoard of formulae being used for different crops, seeds, and also genetically modified crops. Crop protection products have dominated the agriculture in recent past, and are increasingly becoming the backbone of agricultural industry in India. Pesticides, fungicides, insecticides, plant growth regulators and fertilizers have added value to the crop production and facilitated a better yield all across the country.
Amongst these segments, micro nutrients, bio-pesticides, and adjuvant are used in minimum quantities and constitutes a minor share when we talk about crop protection, whereas, pesticides and insecticides have taken a front seat with regards to crop protection market. As per the available data figures this market is up for a phenomenal growth in next few years, because Indian government is putting in various initiatives to support and increase agricultural production to meet the increasing domestic as well as export requirements by using crop protection products. Asian market, being the highest importer of food, will be the largest consumer and will present suitable ground for crop protection products.
HPM India is leading in this initiative and presenting an array of crop protection products with its ongoing innovations. The latest on the shelf being TAMMA, an insecticide that promises to battle all crop eating insects and protect the crops from probable harm.
We are going to discuss TAMMA and its potency in details here:
TAMMA is Thiamethoxam 30% FS formulation and is used as a systemic seed treatment insecticide.
- It effectively protects against target pests by directly interfering with receptors that transmit the message to continue feeding.
- It carries the function to act on different sites of action in the insect.
- It provides control of a wide range of early season sucking and chewing, leaf-feeding and soil-dwelling insect pests, such as aphids, wireworms, flea beetles, and leaf miners.
- It is used to treat the seeds of corn, cotton, sugar beets, oil seed rape, canola, wheat, barley, soybeans, sorghum and other field crops.
- At HPM TAMMA is available in packing sizes of 25ml, 50ml, 100ml, 250ml and 500ml.
Indian agriculture is facing heavy losses due to crop consumption by unwanted organisms. It is estimated that nearly 37% of all crops produced in the country each year are destroyed by agricultural pests, which results in huge economic loss every year. To overcome this high loss of crop production, uses of insecticides is becoming imperative. They kill unwanted insects and let the crops grow in harmony to offer a greater yield which brings prosperity.
Benefits of TAMMA on Crops
The benefits of TAMMA on crops include increased food production, increased profits for farmers and the prevention of plant borne diseases. Although insects consume or harm a large portion of agricultural crops, without the use of TAMMA, it is likely that they would consume a higher percentage.
By using TAMMA, it has become possible to combat insects and produce larger quantities of food. By producing more crops, farmers are also able to increase profits by having more produce to sell. TAMMA also helps to increase farm profits by helping the farmer save money on labor costs. Using TAMMA in spray from reduces the amount of time required to maintain the crops.
Why Do We Need Products Like TAMMA
Shrinking of cultivable land, increasing population, and need to improve crop yields are some major factors driving the demand for crop protection products like TAMMA in upcoming years. Yes, the use must be restricted and regulated as per the norms of regulatory authorities to reduce harmful impact on environment. Yet, absolute consumer awareness is the need and HPM is working in the direction to educate the farmers about use of crop protection products.
