The triketone chemical family includes the selective herbicide mesotrione. In several other crops, such as popcorn, sweet corn, and field corn, it is frequently used to control weeds after a crop has emerged.
Two-(4-methylsulfonyl-2-nitrobenzoyl)-1,3-cyclohexanedione is the chemical name for mesotrione. Its molecular weight is 339.32 g/mol, and its chemical formula is C14H13NO7S.
The mechanism of action of mesotrione is the inhibition of the HPPD enzyme, which is necessary for the production of carotenoid pigments in plants. Without carotenoids, the impacted plants fade and eventually perish.
Mesotrione is available as a dry granule or a liquid concentrate. Usually, it is sprayed directly into the target weeds’ leaves or applied to the soil.
Mesotrione has a quick onset of action and is not hazardous to organisms other than its intended target. When using it close to water bodies, nevertheless, attention should be exercised because it might have some impact on aquatic organisms.
Mesotrione technical ingredients have a residual half-life of around three days in soil and plants, which makes them less harmful to birds, bees, and silkworms.
Due to its compliance with China’s requirements for low toxicity, high efficiency, and environmental safety, it is ideal for use in large cornfields.
Mesotrione is incredibly effective when applied to lawns and sugarcane. Its potential for use in paddy fields is another advantage.
Global mesotrione technical market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
All three companies, Limin Chemical, Nutrichem, and Gansu Zhangye Dagong Pesticide Ltd., have capacity expansion plans.
With the construction of a cutting-edge production facility, Gansu Zhangye Dagong Pesticide Ltd. hopes to expand its capacity.
Furthermore, the rehabilitation of the technological manufacturing facilities for mesotrione is a goal of Fengshan’s IPO programme. The creation of technical documentation demonstrates the producer’s faith in the potential market for mesotrione.
While aggressive market marketing was carried out subsequently, Syngenta successfully registered mesotrione pretilachlor, which is a clever use of mesotrione to the transplanted paddy rice.
The mesotrione series has already begun to be made available by Chinese domestic producers for use with rice, which is currently going through a transitional stage. To ensure their safety, more studies and trials need to be conducted on the different rice kinds and ecological conditions.
