IMMERSE is a emulsified mineral oil (EMO), used as insecticide and acaricide to protect crops. IMMERSE suffocating insect eggs and larva.
IMMERSE also has a fungicidal effect and may be used to fight diseases such as Sigatoka or powdery mildew.
When mixed with other pesticides, IMMERSE can enhance application efficiency. IMMERSE often act as adjuvants, and improve plant coverage and penetration of pesticides into leaf surfaces.
This solution is physical, it has no adverse effects on crop health or yield and quality.
Mode of action:
IMMERSE forms oil film which covers and smothers the insect eggs and larvae. It interferes with respiration more physically than chemically. Insects and mites are affected 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.
IMMERSE also forms a barrier that can prevent the transmission of certain diseases or the arrival of spores.
