Fytomax


Improve plant productivity and growth whilst controlling key insect pests


Fytomax is based upon a special formulation of neem oil and plant extracts that work in synergy to repel insects and prevent feeding. Following application, Fytomax will kill larvae and act as an anti-feedant and insect growth regulator, to control larvae, pupae and adult insect pests of Tuta absoluta and other leaf miners.

In addition, the action of azadirachtin in combination with the neem oil works synergistically to inhibit oviposition, sterilise eggs and reduce the fitness and longevity of affected pests.

Benefits of Fytomax

  • Synergistic blend of plant extracts and neem oil.
  • Works to deter feeding, oviposition and egg development.
  • Works both inside and outside of the leaf.
  • No preharvest interval as biodegrades rapidly.

Why use Fytomax?

Fytomax is a potent larvacide that affects the different feeding stages of the insect. The primary function of the active ingredient, azadirachtin, is to stop larvae from feeding by inhibiting the insect’s normal feeding mechanism and subsequent intake of food.

Azadirachtin also acts as an insect growth regulator (IGR) to cause malformation and mortality. In combination with the neem extract, the azadirachtin works synergistically to result in oviposition repellence, egg sterility and inhibition of exoskeleton synthesis in the insect, providing complete control against crop pests.

Neem oil and other plant extracts

Fytomax has undergone a number of field trials to test its efficacy as a control product. Results demonstrated that application of Fytomax significantly reduced pupal maturation without harming beneficials. Additionally, Fytomax was deemed safe for application at any time up to plant harvest and has no preharvest interval.
