VIVA 240 SL is a systemic carbamate nematicide containing oxamyl. It controls nematodes, (including cyst nematodes) in tomatoes, grapes, citrus and bananas, when applied either to the soil or through drip irrigation.
Features and Benefits
VIVA 240 SL has the following
features and benefits:
VIVA 240 SL is a soluble liquid (SL)
containing 240 g/l of oxamyl, N,
N-dimethyl-2-methylcarbamoyloxyiminio-2(methylio)acetamide, as active
ingredient. It contains a green alerting dye.
Mode of Action
VIVA 240 SL is an oxime carbamate
that acts as a cholinesterase inhibitor. It blocks the passage of nerve impulses
in the nematode/insect, eventually causing total paralysis and death. In the
field it displays both contact and systemic activity.
VIVA 240 SL is a highly effective
nematicide. It controls a range of nematode/crop situations in fields and
plastic houses from bananas to tomatoes. It also controls other soil pests,
such as root-eating Diabrotica spp beetles and millipedes by contact
action and through its systemic activity, aphids and thrips that attack the
seedling and young plant.
