Powerful® insect control in vegetables and cotton

PROCLAIM® is a naturally derived product and a highly potent modern insecticide for use against caterpillars. It has a unique mode of action that inhibits caterpillars from feeding and is highly effective in controlling resistant insect streams, while its prolonged activity ensures growers powerful crop protection. PROCLAIM® rapidly degrades within hours on the surface of foliage by photo-oxidative processes and is an ideal partner for the food chain, fulfilling the highest demand for low residues in fresh produce.
