USP: 1. 5-MIN production technology is designed to produce high cell density, low cost product with minimum 3 years shelf life. 2. The application rate of 5-MIN product is 30 fold lower to the existing biological formulations used for nutrient/pest/ pathogen management. 3. Low application rate and high cell count helps in reducing the bottling cost, transport cost, plastic load in the environment and the contamination load.
T.Stanes & Company Limited
The house of Stanes has a proud lineage that goes way back to 1861, with Sri Robert Stanes. It is a large business house from peninsular India, engaged in manufacturing and marketing, encompassing a diverse range of activities that includes Organic Fertilizer, Micronutrients, Bio-fertilizers, Botanical Pesticides, Microbial insecticides, Microbial fungicides, Microbial nematicides Antitranspirants, immunomodulators and Seeds to name just a few. The organisation was founded as a tea planting company and the coffee curing works marked the beginning of greater things to come, expansion of plantation holdings, diversification into fertilizer mixing 1890, automobiles 1940, and many more growth areas. The company has developed grass-roots level contacts, supported by a network of over 12,000 dealers with over 200 field sales and service personnel to effectively cater to the demands of the agriculturists. The Company is predominantly engaged in agro-inputs serving the agricultural sector, while the mainstay of the business is fertilizers, traded chemical pesticides of multi-national companies and has since some time forayed into the manufacturing of bio-products using its strength in R &D and the expertise gained in the field over a period of time and a turnover of 300 crores. It is mainly engaged in manufacturing and marketing, encompassing a diverse range of activities that include-automobiles, Tyre retreading, Tea plantations, Chemical fertilizer blends, Digested Organic Supplements, Bio-fertilizers, Chemical pesticides, Botanical pesticides, Micronutrient blends, Seeds, Urea coat, Anti-transpirants, Bactericide, Ayurvedic Proprietary Medicines, Herbal teas, Flavored teas, Iced teas etc., . The major activities include: 1. Development of biocontrol agents & bio-fertilizers, natural products as agriculture inputs & plant based products for human Health Care with constant innovative improvements. 2. Collaborative and interactive centre for industrial research and application with academic institutions in the field of agriculture & herbal products. 3. Scientific validation of the Plant & Microbial based Products. The current research activities include investigations & development of biological products the use of phyto-chemicals as possible sources of alternatives to pesticides for resistant pathogens In silico and In vitro analysis of potent plant constituents as tools in lead optimization studies and development of bio-stimulants in the form of enzymes, phyto-extracts and products for better NUE & negate chemicalisation. Biofertilizers are based on Azospirillium sps., for nitrogen fixation and Phosphobacteria for phosphorus solubilization, VAM for nutrient mobilization, Antagonistic fungi based on Trichoderma sp for root disease control and Ampelomyces quisqualis for powdery mildew control are the outcome of research activities since 1988. This was followed by the development of a product with Entomopathogenic fungi Beauveria bassiana for lepidopteron pest control and Metarhizzium anisopliae for Coleopterans pest control, Verticillium lecani for Hemipteran pest control, Paecilomyces lilacinus for root knot nematode control and Paecilomyces fumosoroseus for Phytophagous mite control. In addition to these, our Company has also manufactured Hirsutella thompsonii for the control of coconut Eriophid mite, a burning problem in India in the recent past. To confirm that we adhere to quality and consistency in the products that are bound to have lot of variations, accreditation was obtained for our Production unit with Good Manufacturing Practices certification. Testing lab is accredited by NABL, recognized by AYUSH, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Delhi, and recommended for approval for testing the raw materials and finished products of food water and Agriculture sectors
