The application of Mahamaya Lifesciences Pvt. Ltd. for the registration of Bispyribac Sodium Technical under section 9(3) was approved by the Central Insecticide Board and Registration Committee in its 442nd meeting held on 18.11.2022.

Mahamaya Lifesciences plans for selling the product as Technical and Bulk formulation (10% SC) to renowned Indian Agrochemical companies. Mahamaya has setup a SC formulation plant to meet this requirement with 3000 L per day production capacity.
