Insect pests akin to African bollworm (Helicoverpa armigera), fall armyworm (Spodoptera frugiperda) and maize stalk borer (Busseola fusca), which additionally impacts sorghum, may cause extreme injury to staple meals crops. The issue is that widespread pesticides don’t at all times management these pests successfully. That’s the place Amicor is available in.

Due to the selective motion of Amicor® on bugs’ ryanodine receptors, it has a minimal impact on non-target organism, together with mammals, fish, birds, and helpful bugs.
As well as, the applying of Amicor® normally doesn’t result in an outbreak of spider mites, as is usually the case when pyrethroids or different non-selective pesticides are utilized.
Amicor® due to this fact contributes to sustaining the ecological stability between this secondary pest and its pure enemies.
