This patented product, Aadat, introduced for the Paddy farmer, helps the farmer in nursery stage and also in the main field.
In this way Parijat has recently launched two more patented products. Xyfen Ultra, is a whitefly control product for Cotton, chilli and vegetable farmers. “Farmers have suffered heavily due to damage caused by whitefly, especially in Punjab and Haryana. Whitefly multiplies rapidly and Xyfen Ultra gives a longer and more sustained control compared to all other options in the market” says Vikas Antil, the Marketing Head for North India.
The third patent granted to Parijat is for a product called Velektin for Maize, Cotton and Chilli.
