JOCANIMA Corporation introduced Diligent 720 WP in selected areas of Mountain Province last August 16 to 18.
Diligent 720 WP is the latest product from JOCANIMA that helps fight the late blight disease in potatoes. It combines the active ingredient metalaxyl which is specific against Oomycete pathogens, with Mancozeb, a broad spectrum fungicide.
The launch events were aimed to educate hundreds of potato farmers, big land owners (BLOs) and product dealers in the area about the late blight disease in potatoes, its effects and impact on farmers’ income and to answer the important question of how it can be prevented.
Present in all events were Prof. Lyle Daniel Baconguis, Regulatory Affairs and Product Development (RAPD) Technical Consultant; Ronald Acedillo, National Sales and Marketing Manager; Jefferson Sotto, Sales and Marketing Assistant; Juan Miguel, Field Services Coordinator; & Julius Tipocsa and Elnato Panaten, Crop Protection Specialists (CPSs) for Benguet.
Among the areas visited by the JOCANIMA team were Bauko, Bugias, and Atok. Diligent premium items such as T-shirts, slippers, and lighters were distributed to the participants.
Prof. Baconguis delivered the lecture followed immediately by product testimonials, Q & A and product selling.
