W is a new organic immunity builder developed by MBF, it functions implementing a new action mechanism and a strong activity against Lepidoptera along with being selectively protective of useful organisms. W acts when consumed or comes under contact. It penetrates the leaf tissues (trans-laminar activity) and builds up within the leaf. The mechanism of action is unique among the span of immunity builder. In fact, it inhibits muscle contractions, causing a continuous flow of chlorine ions in the GABA and H-Glutamate receptor sites . W also promotes antioxidant production in plants which, in turn, reduces “free radicals”. Free radical molecules result in negative situations and events such as drought, heat, ultraviolet light. Free radicals are damaging because they are strong oxidizing agents which damage lipids, proteins and DNA within plants cells. Antioxidants are metabolites and enzymes which seek out free radical molecules and protect plants from being damaged. They include lipid soluble substances like vitamin “E” and beta-carotene and water soluble materials such as vitamin C and various enzymes.
- W is a product, which acts in variety of ways to protect crops. It acts as a contact poison by affecting the major component of exoskeleton of insects- ‘chitin’. Whenever the insect comes in contact with W, they become unable to synthesize new cuticle and thereby get prevented from molting successfully to the next stage.
- It acts as a synaptic poison. Thus, the particular fumes released during spraying, directly affect the synaptic nerves and immediately causes the ‘paralytic condition’.
- It acts as an antifeedant. A plant has the natural ability to secrete some internal chemical substances which prevents the insects from eating them. W is a product which promotes the synthesis of such chemical substances in plants. So, the insects often remain nearby plants, where it dies because of starvation.
- It also acts as a stomach poison by disrupting the digestive system of insects.
- It makes the plants healthy & blooming. Improves tremendous greenery among crops. So, the plant immune system itself becomes strong so as to tolerate the environmental stress conditions and to safeguard the plants from further attack.
General dose of MBF W is 1 -1.5ml per liter of water & in severe attack, use 2-2.5 ml per liter of water
Applicable for all agricultural crops, horticultural crops, lawns, flowering plants, ornamental plants etc.
Do not inhale/consume. If inhaled, shift from exposed area to fresh clean air. If eyes and skin are affected, flush them with clean water for minutes and seek medical attention. Prolonged skin contact may cause slight irritation.
