TWIGAMECTIN acts by inhibiting transmission of nerve impulse leading to paralysis of susceptible insects/mites. The pests stop feeding immediately limiting crop damage. The pest is killed in 3- 4 days through contact and stomach action. It also has tranlaminar activity hence offers a resevoir of active ingredient within the leaf and does not have cross resistance with other insecticides/miticides. It is applied as a foliar spray at the rate of 10ml/20l of water ensuring thorough wetting of the crop applied at first signs of infestation with a post harvest interval of 7 days. It photo-degrades rapidly, binds strongly to soil preventing entry into the aquatic environment.
