Thiamethoxam 98% TC
Thiamethoxam TC is a neonicotinoid, with contact, stomach, and systemic activity. It is rapidly taken up into the plant and transported acropetally in the xylem. It selectively inhibits the central nervous in insects to block nerve conduction. It is applied by leaf spray and soil irrigation.
Thiamethoxam TC has high activity in Coleoptera, Diptera, Lepidoptera, and especially Homoptera, controlling piercing-sucking pests, like aphids, leafhoppers, plant hoppers, and whiteflies. It is applied to many crops, like potato, soybean, rice, cotton, corn, and so on.
