Fipronil 5% SC

Fipronil 5% SC is a new generation insecticide from the Phenyl Pyrazole family. Fipronil’s site of action distinguishes it from most commercial insecticides. Target site specificity exists between insects and mammals, with Fipronil exhibiting tighter binding in the insect GABA chloride channel than in mammals, enabling useful selective toxicity. It has both contact and ingestion activity, but ingestion is more effective. Fipronil lacks the rapid knockdown effect associated with some insecticides, and insect mortality may appear to be moderately slow. However, intermediate responses, such as feeding cessation, may be observed soon after treatment. In general, residual control after foliar application is effective.  It has demonstrated a demonstrable plant growth enhancement (PGE) effect in a variety of crops and it is also an effective thripicide.

Description

Mode of Action of Fipronil 5% SC

It basically acts as an ingestion toxin with some complementary contact action. It interferes with nerve impulse transmission.  It disrupts CNS activity and, at sufficient dosage, causes insect death by interfering with the passage of chloride ions through the GABA-regulated chloride channel.

Benefits of Fipronil 5% SC

  • It has been found to provide low-dose, high-effective insect control against a wide range of economically significant pests.
  • It has also been found to be effective, particularly in the control of thrips.
  • Its distinct mode of action enables it to control insects that have developed resistance to all other classes of insecticides.
  • It is an excellent choice for IPM.
  • Fipronil helps to increase crop yield by controlling pests that inhibit crop growth. In the absence of harmful pests, Fipronil has been shown to improve crop vigour and yields, as well as crop quality.
