- Comprehensive and extended protection against key diseases
- Improved crop vigour sets up stronger yields
- Less need for early foliar spraying, saving time and money
How it works
Many insecticides repel pests, so their ‘control’ of pest populations is more a case of simply moving them. The pests are repelled before they become affected and increase pest pressure on untreated paddocks and pasture.
Fipronil, the active ingredient of Cosmos®, has no repellent effect. It can’t be detected in the soil by pests like redlegged earth mites, so they come into contact with it or ingest it as they approach seeds and the population is reduced.
Questions and Answers from the Field
