Description

Mode of Action

Imidacloprid inhibits the nicotinic acetylcholine receptor in the central nervous system. It disrupts the proper signal transmission system, causing nerve cell excitation and, as a result, a nervous system disorder, ultimately leading to the death of the treated insect.

Benefits of Imidacloprid 70% WG

  • Working at low doses, it provides excellent control and longer protection against most sucking pests.
  • The granule formulation makes it easier to handle and measure the dose.
  • There are no residues, so there is no abrasion to the pump nozzle.
  • There is no need for constant agitation or priming of the sprayer.
  • Imidacloprid application has a phytotonic effect on the treated crops, promoting vigorous plant growth and acting as a stress shield.
  • It is soluble, which improves plant absorption and efficacy.
