Systemicity – Translocation
Using a unique formulation concept, SIVANTO® prime 200 SL (soluble liquid) is based on a specifically tailored emulgator system that has never been used before within the agrochemical industry.
Based on the excellent spontaneity of SIVANTO® prime’s formulation rapid solubility and good miscibility takes place in the spray tank avoiding any precipitation and forming a homogenous solution. After spray application the advanced retention which means the ability to retain the compound on the plant surface due to the unique emulgator system results into high bioavailability and enhanced plant penetration of the active ingredient for rapid activity. The improved cold stability of the formulation leads to easy handling and storage of the produce even at low temperature.
Translaminar and xylem-systemic movement
SIVANTO® prime’s active ingredient is taken up into the leaves and stems with spray application and via the roots when applied to soil or alternative substrates. After absorption into the plant, SIVANTO® prime is translocated acropetally in the xylem, in the direction of the transpiration stream, and is translaminarily distributed into adjacent plant cells.
Due to this translaminar movement, it is successful against insects feeding on the underside, even when applied only to the topside of the leaf.
Contact, feeding and translaminar efficacy
Hard-to-reach spots and pests are no longer a problem
Compared to standard competitors, SIVANTO® prime provides very fast feeding cessation (measured by honeydew excretion) even on aphids feeding on the underside of leaves.
|Crop||Pest||Rate||Contact & feeding|
|Pepper||Myzus persicae||60g a.i./ha||++++|
|Pepper||Myzus persicae||12g a.i./ha||++++|
spray droplet on lower leaf surface
|Cotton||Aphis gossypii||75g a.i./ha||+++|
|Cabbage||Myzus persicae||75g a.i./ha||++++|
spray droplet on upper leaf surface
Foliar application: SIVANTO® prime’s systemic translocation properties distributes the active substance rapidly throughout the leaves to reach even hidden pests.
