Ampligo insecticide is a broad-spectrum insecticide that can be used to control Tuta absoluta, Diamond Back Moth, Whiteflies, Leaf-hoppers, Fall Army Worm, and other lepidopteran pests in vegetables.
It is a translaminar, encapsulated suspension flowable concentrate insecticide with contact and stomach action for the control of various pests on crops like Leafy Vegetables, Maize, Tomatoes, Rice etc.
Mode of Action of Ampligo Insecticide
Ampligo insecticide combines 2 different insecticide mode of actions, the bisamide and the pyrethroid mode of action.
Chlorantraniliprole is a ryanodine receptor modulator. The mode of action of chlorantraniliprole is the activation of insect ryanodine receptors. This activation stimulates the release of calcium from the internal stores of smooth and striated muscle, causing impaired muscle regulation, paralysis and ultimately insect death.
Pyrethroids are sodium channel modulators, interfering with the central nervous system of insects. It is one of the most potent compounds. The pests become paralyzed and eventually die. However, although feeding stops almost immediately, it can take up to 4 days for death to occur. During this time the host plant is not damaged.
