UPL is positioned as a knowledge hub that innovates products for the benefit of farmers the world over. Our portfolio of total crop solution products enhances farm profitability. This portfolio extends from seeds to post-harvest solutions. Representing a one-stop farmer solution.
Advanta Limited is more than just a UPL Group company; it is a global plant genetics company. Committed to sustainable agriculture through innovative research and technology. Marketing quality seeds across 25 countries.
Advanta leverages traditional breeding principles in addition to modern Dihaploid and Molecular Marker technologies. These technologies translate into crop improvements, building value-added biotech traits in the seeds. The company’s unique, superior and proprietary germplasm as well as intellectual properties have graduated it into a global leader in the development of new hybrids and field crops.
The company is enhancing capacities and capabilities through organic investments and strategic
acquisitions with the perspective to accelerate growth.
We enhance agriculture viability through start-to-end crop solutions. We are among leading global producers and exporters of crop protection products. Our commitment is showcased in our superior product quality and sustainable growth performance.
It is imperative for the world to address primary and secondary issues affecting the far sector. At UPL, we provide solutions that improve or protect yields while addressing multiple challenges.
Seeds represent the most critical farmer investment. The application of biological and chemical agents to control or contain primary soil and seed-borne insects and diseases makes it possible to protect this investment. A good seed treatment product provides complete protection against broad- spectrum insect attacks. We are developing a portfolio of seed treatment products across crop types, based on the local needs of farmers the world over.
Zeba is a starch-based granule that absorbs more than 400X its weight in water. Applied at planting, Zeba absorbs and then releases water and nutrients to plants over and over throughout the growing season. Because Zeba is made from starch, it degrades in the soil just like plant residues.
UPL is working with technology innovators to introduce biological products, including biopesticides. Biopesticides biological agents usually applied in a way similar to chemical pesticides, except in a environment friendly manner. As with all crop protection products, effective control requires appropriate formulation and application; all our products undergo extensive trials leading to superior results.
Agricultural spray adjuvants enhance the effectiveness of pesticides and other agents that control or eliminate unwanted pests. Our adjuvant called ‘U-Wet’, available globally, improves crop protection product effectiveness.
Some 16 chemical elements are important as plant nutrients necessary for plant growth and survival. These are divided into two groups: mineral and non-mineral. We develop superior technologies that make it possible to deliver the right nutrient quantity to the plant in the most efficient way.
Affected by moisture stress, low germination, poor nutrient efficiency and weak soil structure. To improve soil capacity and sustain productivity, we introduced a number of products. These products help in moisture retention and release, nutrient release, soil biotic habitat promotion and enhanced degradation resistance.
The result is that our region-specific formulations are based on soil types, environment factors, crops grown etc. Over time, these have emerged as farmer favorites. One such formulation is Zeba – a starch-based polymer – which, when applied to the soil, helps retain soil moisture and nutrients in the crop rhizosphere, released only following plant demand. The product enhances soil porosity and bio degrades easily, enhancing soil health.
We enjoy a strategic alliance with Clarke – USA, pioneers in the business of mosquito control and related services, making it possible to counter mosquito infestations and liberate communities from vector diseases (malaria, filaria, dengue, chikungunya, Japanese encephalitis etc.)
Our integrated approach improved product efficacy, cost-effectiveness, ecological soundness and sustainability. We address community needs through researched, specialized programmes addressing environment and human conditions unique to those areas.
We also deal with products addressing termites and are likely to launch pesticides directed at the general
We offer comprehensive post-harvest solutions for grain, fruit, and vegetables that enhance marketability and farmer incomes.
The Phosphine fumigation method has been acknowledged as the most effective the world over in pest control, saving thousands of tons of grain from destruction. UPL’s QuickPhos, coupled with its principal ingredient Aluminium Phosphide, is a solid potent fumigant in tablet, pellet and bag presentation. MagnaPhos’ active ingredient comprises Magnesium Phosphide with the palate of its ammonia-free formulation and fast-gas release being its most popular presentations. The QuickPHlo-R system is ideal in state-of-the-art application technologies and is under patent in most countries.
Packaging and the transport of perishable commodities like fresh fruit represents an ongoing challenge. DECCO is an effective post-harvest system trusted by farmers and packers the world over across decades.
DECCO (DECay COntrol) produces quality coatings used in fruit and vegetables. These coatings provide an enduring sheen, control shrinkage and dehydration, protecting product quality during longer transportation tenures. DECCO protects produce quality, making it possible for producers to generate the highest returns, especially for fruit like mango, kinnow, apple etc.
All ingredients used in DECCO manufacturing are approved as food-grade by the F.D.A, EU and P.F.A in India.
