Why Size Matters

These videos demonstrate the importance of capsule size. The capsule is the key part of the formulation that carries the active ingredient onto the plant and the insect target. When it comes to capsule size it matters!

HALLMARK repellency effect

In this video the HALLMARK repellency effect is demonstrated with cabbage stem flea beetles.  In the experiment we took two trays of young OSR plants and treated one with 75ml of HALLMARK ZEON and left the second tray untreated. A population of CSFB were placed in the middle between the two trays and given the choice of which plants to snack on.  The video demonstrates that the repellency effect works and discouraged the beetles from the HALLMARK ZEON treated plants. Therefore, even if you have resistant beetles this could give the young plants sufficient time to get away from any damage. 

TuYV virus transmission

Syngenta has studied in a laboratory the time taken for aphids to feed on a leaf and transmit virus, demonstrating how quickly PLENUM caused the aphid to stop feeding.
