The reduction of foliar applications makes it very IPM friendly.
Mode of Action :
Imidacloprid 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.
The targeted application of Gaucho, through seed treatment, reduces the contamination of environment in unprecedented way
