CIECH Sarzyna – new products and expansion into a new segment of insecticides. CIECH's Agro business defends its position in the segment of cereal and corn herbicides

CIECH Sarzyna, the largest producer of plant protection products in Poland, is introducing three products to new market segments. One of these products, Leptosar 200 SL, is now available in the insecticide market – a new market segment for the company. In the first half of 2023, CIECH's Agro business defends its position in the segment of cereals and corn herbicides. Additionally, CIECH Sarzyna continues the Halvetic Tour series of events, during which farmers receive detailed information about the functionality of an innovative herbicide based on the patented BGT (Better Glyphosate Technology) method. 


CIECH Sarzyna is currently implementing the largest investment plan in the company's history for new products. An important element of CIECH Sarzyna's consistent development of its offering is providing customers with comprehensive crop protection programs for key crops. The three new CIECH Sarzyna’s products mark another new chapter in the production of plant protection products by the chemical company based in Podkarpackie Province, Poland.


Debuts at CIECH Sarzyna 

Through the launch of Leptosar 200 SL, CIECH’s Agro business enters a completely new market of insecticides. The solution is registered for over 40 agricultural crops, including small-area crops. It combats pests in various developmental stages and offers the possibility of application during different phases of plantation growth, reliably protecting plantations during the vegetative period. Moreover, Tokama and Zarolis – complex, comprehensive fungicides – also make their debut on the market. Tokama is a universal fungicide suitable for application in all winter and spring cereals. On the other hand, Zarolis is used to protect rapeseed against fungal diseases. All three products are effective, reliable, and complete – they do not require the use of other additional products, and their performance is confirmed by years of agricultural experience. Similar characteristics are exhibited by other well-known products of CIECH Sarzyna, which are maintaining their market position.


Defending its position in key segments

According to PAMS company’s data, the value of the Polish market of plant protection products currently amounts to 2.7 billion PLN (compared to 2.9 billion PLN last year, indicating a decrease of 7.6% ). Globally, companies within Agro industry are still under significant pressure of weakening demand. Nevertheless, in recent months, CIECH Sarzyna's products have been maintaining their position in the segment of spring herbicides for broadleaf cereals, with the Chwastox product family as its flagship. Similarly, the corn herbicides segment maintains its position, with the Tezosar Extra Box solution at the forefront.


"CIECH Sarzyna defends its position in the category of cereal and corn herbicides, continues product development and actively enters the insecticides segment. Market conditions remain challenging, but the results of well-established products and the emergence of new markets for the innovative product Halvetic demonstrate that consistency in executing the largest investment plan for new products in the company's history brings the intended effects," says Wojciech Babski, President of the Management Board of CIECH Sarzyna and Head of Agro Business in the CIECH Group.


Halvetic on tour

CIECH Sarzyna also continues the campaign to spread knowledge about Halvetic among farmers who are interested in learning about the benefits of this innovative plant protection solution. The company from Podkarpackie Province organizes a nationwide series of over thirty field events under the name Halvetic Tour. The central theme of its autumn edition will be the application of this groundbreaking product in  stubble fields. The upcoming meetings will take place in various regions, including Łódzkie, Wielkopolskie, Dolnośląskie and Lubuskie voivodship. These events are dedicated to farm owners and agricultural advisors. Participants will have the opportunity to engage with experts who will provide detailed information about the workings of the Halvetic product and its application methods. The Halvetic Tour is also an opportunity to exchange experiences and gain knowledge about the latest trends and technologies used in agriculture.
