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 a purely neem based water soluble emulsifiable concentrate.
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.
Life is a broad spectrum pesticide effective against all species including red spiders, and insect pests like helopeltis, aphids, jassids, thrips and caterpillars etc.
Antifeedant effect : The active ingredient in Life sensory receptors of mouth parts, resulting in disorientation of normal feeding and intake of food by 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.
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.
