ALANTO INSECTICIDE ( अलांटो कीटनाशक )
Thiacloprid 240 SC (21.7% w/w)
Thiacloprid is a member of the chemical class of neonicotinoid insecticides. It is an effective tool for the control of a broad spectrum of pests which are otherwise difficult to control. Thiacloprid, due to its rain-fastness property, is stable even under conditions of heavy rains and sunlight providing longer persistence.
Mode of Action :
Thiacloprid is antagonist to the nicotinic acetyl choline receptor in the central nervous system. It disturbs the proper signal transmission system leading to excitation of nerve cell. Consequently a disorder of the nervous system occurs leading finally to the death of the treated insect.
Insecticide Resistance Action Committee (IRAC) Classification No. 4A
Due to its relative stability to rain-water and sunlight, Alanto remains on the leaf's surface after application for a considerable time, thus allowing a continuous penetration of the active ingredient into the leaf
It acts as an acute contact and stomach poison, exhibits systemic activity added with translaminar activity and residual effect
Alanto covers broad range of targeted pests, viz., aphids, whiteflies, weevils, thrips, and lepidopterans
No cross resistance to conventional insecticides, with fast degradation in the environment
Alanto shows a low acute mammalian toxicity, due to relatively low rates of application, excellent plant compatibility and a favorable eco-toxicological profile.
