Agronomist José de Freitas from Sipcam Nichino's market development department, said that ET-Part is a Protoporphyrinogen oxidase (PPO) inhibiting herbicide with rapid action. The product ″inhibits enzymatic activity in chloroplasts in the presence of light, therefore, it is operationally practical and safer for the environment,″ he said.

″ET-Part is an effective option for bean desiccation to anticipate harvesting, as well as to standardize grain ripening and achieve more efficient harvests, including for machine operations,″ de Freitas added, noting that in addition to beans, ET-Part has also acquired label recommendations for cotton and potato crops.
