Movento is an insecticide for the control of sucking pests on a range of edible and ornamental crops. Movento combines two important insecticidal characteristics; the mobility of 2-SYS two-way systemicity and a mode of action of inhibiting lipid biosynthesis. Movento is best applied when pests first appear and when the plant is actively growing. The product is translocated to growing points, so it will reach hidden aphids in leaves and roots. It is important to spray directly onto older leaves.
The main advantage of using Movento is that it will protect new growth of a plant as it travels around the plant.
Movento can be used on a variety of crops including Brussel sprouts, broccoli, calabrese, cabbage, cauliflower, collards, kale, lettuce, potatoes, onions, carrots, swede, turnip and parsnip; as well as Forestry, Ornamentals, Vines & Hops - plus many more Extensions of use.
1L will cover up to 3 hectares. Sprayer rate typically 0.3 - 0.5 litres per hectare in 200 - 600 litres of water. Check bottle label for specific application rates, crop harvest intervals and a full list of pests controlled.
Obvious control will usually occur 3-7 days after application of Movento. The most susceptible are the youngest larvae.
