  1. 1. Emamectin Benzoate 5% SG • Emamectin Benzoate was discovered in 1984 • Features ∆ is semi synthetic ∆ Non systemic ∆ New generation ∆ Naturally derived avermectin insecticides. ∆ Emamectin is used at very low dose.
  2. 2. ∆ Emamectin targets lepidopteran as well as leaf miner in vegetables & fruits, Gram, Soybean, Tur & Cotton. ∆ Emamectin is more active against those insects which are resistant to other chemical groups (Organo phosphates, Carbamates). ∆ Emamectin works much faster after ingestion by the insect.
  3. 3. BENEFITS Ō Emamectin has novel mode of action hence no case of resistance. Ō Emamectin is not harmful to beneficial insects hence fit in IPM module. Ō Due to translaminar activity Emamectin has the quality of rain fastness. Ō Highly effective and environment protecting biocide. Ō Lepidoptera specialist but selective to Beneficials Ō Due to its little amount of usage and being easy to degrade, does not pollute the environment and has no residue.

  5. 5. Xpert  New class of insecticide “Avermectins”  Avermectins are a series of closely related macro cyclic lactone derivatives produced as fermentation metabolites of Streptomyces avermitlis  XPERT is both stomach and contact insecticide  XPERT in Water Soluble Granule [SG] become one of the most promising new generations of formulated pesticides and utilization of soluble granular pesticides  It works much faster after ingestion by the insect.
  6. 6. Ingestion Activity DROPLET Reservoir within foliage Long residual INGESTION activity LEPIDOPTERA CONTROL Rapid photodegradation on surface SHORT CONTACT ACTIVITY TRANSLAMINAR Complete Kill observed 1st to 3rd Instars – 72 Hrs 4th to 6th Instars – 6 to 7 days
  7. 7. v Faster movement of Xpert Slower movement of Xpert Emamectin penetrates leaf through translaminar action.
  8. 8. INGESTION CHLORIDE FLOW MUSCLE PARALYSIS FEEDING STOPS DEATH Mode of Action Emamectin protects plants from feeding damage in 2 hours of application Damage stops in just 2 Hrs after ingestion Death occurs in 72 Hrs for smaller instars. Takes more time upto 6 – 7 days for larger instars
  9. 9. Application ☼ Dosage: 200-250g/ha or 80-100 g/acre ☼ Apply XPERT at the first sign of damage and repeat at an interval of 10 -12 days. ☼ If necessary counter / scout the field at random weekly in 10 plants and recommend spray of XPERT if the count exceeds 4 larvae of any caterpillar species or 7-8 DBM.
  10. 10.  XPERT found to be superior to other known chemicals like : o Endosulfan 30 EC @ 1000 ml / ha o Quinalphos 25 EC @ 1000 ml / ha o Carbaryl 50 WP @ 2000 gm / ha o Chlorpyriphos 20 EC @ 1000 ml / ha
