SWAL – Subsidiary of UPL Launch TRISHUK India’s First 3 Way Action Sugarcane Herbicide .

Summary :

To solve the problems of sugar cane farmers, SWAL Corporation Limited (Part of UPL) launched Trishuk – a weed control solution. The innovative product is India’s first 3-way sugarcane herbicide that minimizes weed control costs and increases crop productivity through effective weed management. Consisting of 2,4-D Sodium Salt 44%, Metribuzin 35% and PSE 1% WG, it provides 3 levels of protection as a Plant Growth Regulator (PGR), Mobile Photosynthesis Inhibitor and Acetolactate Synthase (ALS) Inhibitor.

Sugarcane farmers face 25-50% yield loss due to improper weed management every year. Trishuk aims to minimize these losses through its innovative 3-way mix herbicide. In the last three years, Trishuk has shown exceptional results in more than 1000 trials that were conducted in major Sugarcane-producing states in India like Uttar Pradesh, Maharashtra, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Gujarat, Punjab & Haryana.

It was observed that Trishuk gives 50-60 days of weeds control and reduced weed management labour cost by Rs. 3000-4000/- per acre.
