Life  : Based on Azadirachtin isolated from the kernel of neem seeds, this broad spectrum biocide provides the most effective, economic and lasting control of major pests of agricultural and plantation crops. It is the  most environment friendly pesticide, highly biodegradable and leaves no residues on the food stuff.

Neem  is well known in India for centuries for its medicinal properties. But it is also a source of natural insecticides. Current research confirms that neem derivatives indeed have wide ranging pesticidal activities.

Life  is based on Azadirachtin, the potent insect and mite killer, anti-feedant, and growth retardant isolated from the kernel of neem seeds. Azadirachtin is a highly oxidized triterpenoid having molecular formula  of C35 H44 O16.

 

 



Life  is a purely neem based water soluble emulsifiable concentrate.

Composition
Azadirachtin 1% W/P

MODE OF ACTION

Immediate contact and knock-down action followed by a systemic action of long duration. The systemic action provides the much needed preventive action against potential damages from insects, mites and fungal organisms. Life  acts against different life-stages of insects and mites.

Repellent action : LIfe has very strong repellent  effects which prevent the insects and mites from colonising the treated plants.

Insect growth disruption : Azadirachtin component of Life  inhibits normal growth and development or insects and mites causing biological failures of their life-cycles.

COMPATIBILITY
Life  is compatible with common insecticides, acaricides, fungicides, and foliar nutrients. Life  can be an alternate to conventional pesticides in normal spraying or can be used in combination. Even by itself Life  would give the most effective control of insects and mites, especially when totally residue free tea is needed.
