Godrej Agrovet, a subsidiary of Godrej Industries, has launched a horticulture crop growth-booster nutrient Dripzyme, a seaweed extract-based product formulated for drip irrigation crops.

Dripzyme, the company said, helps in growth of additional branches, flower and fruit buds resulting in higher yield. It helps in creating an extended root system, giving plants greater access to nutrients and water in the soil, thereby enhancing the nutritional value of the yield. It not only improves quality of produce but also aids in saving labour, time and aids in better absorption of nutrients from soil, the company said in a press release.

Dripzyme would be available in Maharashtra, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu in 500 ml, 1 litre and 5 litre packs.

Mr Balram Singh Yadav, Managing Director, Godrej Agrovet said that adoption of drip irrigation in grapes cultivation is almost 100 per cent and highest in Maharashtra among all the States.

“Dripzyme provides an opportunity to grape-growers to improve yield, quality of their produce and realise higher price. Since adoption of drip irrigation is growing fast in many States, it would definitely add value to a large number of farmers,” he said.

Grappling with huge labour and water shortage, an increasing trend of progressive framers, especially in cash crops such as vegetables and fruits, are adopting drip irrigation to save on cost. In grapes, Dripzyme will increase the formation of fruit buds and bunch size besides improving fertility of existing buds. It also improves translocation of sugars in the berries which in turn increases TSS (Total soluble solids) content. In vegetables, it creates an extended root system, giving plants greater access to nutrients and water in the soil, increases additional branches, flower and fruit buds resulting in higher yields, said the release
