Multifunctions of IMMERSE

Acaricide: Gall mites, rust mites and other mites have special effects.

Insecticide: It has significant control and preventive effect on red spiders, scale insects, mealybugs, leafhoppers, thrips, psyllids, whiteflies, aphids, leaf miners, lycium bugs and other pests.

Fungicide: It can effectively inhibit or remove downy mildew, gray mold, leaf mold, black spot, target spot, powdery mildew, soot, anthracnose, rust and other diseases.

Bright fruit: Remove the moss and black stains on the fruit surface, protect the fruit, and increase the brightness of the fruit.

Oil-based products

Regardless of the source or type, all oil-based products have a similar mode of action.

Insecticidal oils kill insects on contact by disrupting gas exchange (respiration), cell membrane function or structure.
They also kill them by disrupting their feeding on oilcovered surfaces. Their toxic action is more physical than chemical and is short-lived.

When used against plant pathogens, oils may smother fungal growth and reduce spore germination on treated surfaces. They are mostly fungistatic, stopping fungal growth rather than killing the pathogens.

Stylet oils are highly refined oils and may control insect-vectored plant viruses in addition to insects, mites and fungal pathogens.

These oils reduce the ability of aphids to acquire the virus from an infected plant and transmit it to healthy plants. Stylet oils may interfere with the virus’s ability to remain in aphid mouthparts (stylets).

Some plant oils that contain sulfur compounds, such as neem oil, may possess additional fungicidal activity compared to petroleum oils.
Oil-based pesticides have low residual activity and must be sprayed directly on the insect or mite. To combat plant fungal pathogens, oils generally must be applied prophylactically prior to infection. Repeated applications of oils may be needed to achieve desired levels of control.

Applications of IMMERSE

IMMERSE is used as insecticides and acaricides to protect crops. It also has a fungicidal effect and may be used to fight diseases such as Sigatoka or powdery mildew.

IMMERSE has a physical mode of action: the oil film covers and smothers the insect eggs and larvae. It also forms a barrier that can prevent the transmission of certain diseases or the arrival of spores. This explains our products’ broad spectrum of action without any known development of resistance.

IMMERSE may also be used as adjuvants with active insecticidal, fungicidal and herbicidal substances. They can have various synergies with these substances such as, for example, limiting the development of resistance to them.


This solution is physical: they create a several micron thickness film that coats the plant’s surface, suffocating insect eggs and larva for example, or inhibiting the growth of fungal spores. This specific mechanism makes the oils usable on a variety of crops and does not any resistance in target species.

They have no adverse effects on crop health or yield and quality.

How IMMERSE affect the targets?

Insects and mites are affected by IMMERSE in 3 ways:

1) prevention of gaseous exchange, disrupting respiration,

2) interference with membrane function and some toxicity to cells from oil penetration and

3) interference with feeding of certain leafhoppers and aphids on oil-covered surfaces

Adjuvants’ role in combatting herbicide resistance  

Tank mix compatibility rule

Growers use tank mixes all the time to apply all of the required ag inputs in an efficient manner. Every one of these mixes is different and while many will not cause any problems, some formulations are not compatible with each other and cause a big mess and a bigger headache. Ag professionals can use a couple of techniques to avoid tank mix compatibility issues in their sprayer.

Tank mix compatibility issuesMixing Order

When mixing products, growers should add products to the spray tank in a specific order to avoid mixing problems. While growers need to consult the labels on the products they are using for specific mixing instructions, generally products should be added to the tank using the W-A-L-E-S method

Jar Test

If growers have a specific tank mix that they are concerned with, a small “jar test can save a lot of hard work and money. In this test, we mix the products that would be in the tank mix in a small, clear, pesticide-safe container at the same concentrations as the tank mix. We can then evaluate the jar test and examine the compatibility of the products in the mix. It is much easier to dispose of a small container of incompatible mix rather than clean out a large sprayer tank full of the same mix.
