Mode of Action
Thiocyclam hydrogen oxalate is a nereistoxin analogue insecticide with contact and stomach actions, which acts by blocking the synapsis of the central nervous system.
Imidacloprid has contact and stomach poison action and works by interfering with the transmission of stimuli in the insect nervous system by causing a blockage of the nicotinergic neuronal pathway thus preventing acetylcholine from transmitting impulses between nerves, resulting in the insect’s paralysis and eventual death.
Apply at first signs of infestation of pests for maximum 3 applications on 7 – 10 days interval per season ensuring uniform coverage of the crop foliage while spraying should be ensured for effectiveness.
Epitome Elite® 500SP is compatible with most pesticides and foliar fertilizers. However, it is advisable to carry out a compatibility test before mixing commercial quantities or spraying a large area.
Epitome Elite® 500SP is not phytotoxic when used as recommended.
