Mode of application:

  • Apply as a foliar spray to cover the above-ground parts and undertake soil drenching to protect the roots from root feeding insects/soil-borne insects.
  • The ideal time to spray is early in the morning or late in the evening when wind velocity is less.
  • When spraying on the above-ground portions, ensure to apply on the underside of the leaves and flowers to ensure complete protection to the Plants.
