Courage systemic insecticide is a systemic insecticidal seed dressing for the control of pests in Maize, Natural Grazing, Sorghum, Sunflowers and Wheat. Courage 700 WS systemic insecticides get into the organisms mainly through feeding on the treated plants or contaminated soil.
Active ingredient: Imidacloprid (chloro-nicotinyl) 700g/kg
Mode of Action:
Systemic insecticides are applied directly to the crop soil and seedlings in glasshouses using flowable solutions or granules, and often as seed-dressings, with foliar applications and drenching being less common. Being quite water-soluble, these insecticides are readily taken up by the plant roots or incorporated into the tissues of the growing plants as they develop, so the pests that come to eat them ingest a lethal dose and die. Systemic insecticides contaminate all plant tissues, from the roots to leaves and flowers, where active residues can be found up to 45-90 days, lasting as long as in soil.
