A novel granular pesticide of botanical origin, used for the control of soil borne pests including nematodes. It i5 recommended for soil application. The active ingredients include a careful blend of neem seed constituents collectively called neem bitters. They are coated or absorbed on to a selective carrier material of agricultural origin, so that the persistency and stability of the active compound is enhanced in this medium. The mode of action is both systemic and contact type.
Can be used as a substitute for Methyl Bromide for nematode management.
Can be used as a component in Integrated Pest Management(|PM).
Ready to use. (No mixing required!)
Safer to handle as particles settle quickly and there IS no spraying.
Q Requires simple application equipment, such as seeders or fertilizer spreaders.
Moe persistent than wettable powders (WPs) or emulsifiable concentrates (ECs).
The chemical pesticide Carbofuran is widely used to control nematodes. However, Carboturan has a very short effective period, moreover it is banned in many countries because of its adverse effect on the environmentand its inherenttoxicity.
A botanicai pesticide, NEEMATE-10G is free from the toxicity of Carbofuran.
Comparative bio-efficacy of NEEMATE-1 OG and Carboturan for control of root-knot nematode in chick pea (3 years mean).
