CHESS® 50 WG FACT SHEET
Active Ingredient: Pymetrozine
Formulation: Water Dispersible Granules
Mode of Action:
Chess® provides immediate crop protection through permanent feeding inhibition of insects. It binds to the neuronal receptors, which act on the nervous system creating a nervous inhibition of feeding capability in the insects. This action also prevents the aphid transmitting virus material into the plant.
First symptoms are visible after 15 minutes. Insects withdraw their stylet and stop feeding within 1 hour. Aphids do not feed again but remain on the plant leaf for several days and die by way of starvation.
Chess® is characterized by its upward and downward translocation.
