Active Ingredient: Fosthiazate
Mode of Action:
Fosthiazate is a contact nematicide. Like other organophosphorous compounds NEMATHORIN® inhibits acetyl cholinesterase in the juvenile nematodes, which firstly paralyzes them thereby preventing further crop damage. prolonged exposure results in nematode death.
