Mode of Action
Thiamethoxam: Interferes with the receptor protein nicotinic and acetylcholine of the nervous system. It has contact, stomach, and systemic activity. Insects susceptible to Thiamethoxam almost die instantly. Targets wireworms, whiteflies, aphids, jassids, bean fly, thrips, and termites.
Metalaxyl -M: Penetrates the seed coat and is systemically translocated to both shoots and roots during germination, providing protection from pre-emergence damping-off caused by pythium spp. Good protection from soil and airborne downy mildews is also achieved during and after germination for a period of up to 4 weeks.
Difenoconazole: Systemic triazole fungicide with a broad spectrum anti-fungal activity. It is taken up by the seed and translocated within the seedling. It provides protection from damping-off, fusarium spp. and septoria spp.
