BIOVECTROL® 612EC belongs to a series of environmentally friendly insecticidal formulations based on a unique and extremely safe active ingredient known as Etofenprox®1, coupled with a proprietary blend of natural botanical extracts as synergist, for effective crop protection and growth enhancement.

BIOVECTROL® 612EC series has high insecticidal activities, which provide very quick killing action against a broad spectrum of crop insect pests, including lepidoptera, hemiptera, coleoptera, diptera and orthoptera, and yet has remarkably weak toxicity to mammals.

BIOVECTROL® 612EC series is also an “insect control agent” with multiple modes of biological activities, such as repellency, antifeedant properties and insect growth regulation effects, etc for crop protection in addition to its insecticidal activities. Furthermore, its anti-fungal, anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties protect crops against infection and therefore enhance plant development.

BIOVECTROL® 612EC series is both biodegradable and photodegradable; long term and repeated applications will not pose any environmental pollution and will not leave harmful residues in crops.

 
 
Features
 
BIOVECTROL® 612EC exhibits additional benefits as a disinfectant. The following test results show the basic bactericidal activity of BIOVECTROL® 612EC at 80 times dilution (1:79) :
 
RAPID KNOCKDOWN, BROAD SPECTRUM & PERSISTENT PROTECTION
  BIOVECTROL® 612EC series has high, broad spectrum, insecticidal activity and provides very quick killing action against various insect pests including Lepidoptera, Hemiptera, Coleoptera, Diptera and Orthoptera with persistent protection.
   
LOW IMPACT TO NATURAL ENEMIES
  BIOVECTROL® 612EC series is practically harmless to honeybees, earthworms and certain predator spiders, etc under normal outdoor applications.
   
NON PHYTOTOXIC
  No phytotoxicity is observed on most crops at the recommended dosages.
   
BIOLOGICAL ACTIVITIES AS INSECT CONTROL AGENT
 

REPELLENCY
BIOVECTROL® 612EC treated leaf surfaces are less preferred by insect pests for feeding, colonization and reproduction due to its behavior-altering feature.

ANTIFEEDANT ACTIVITY
BIOVECTROL® 612EC stimulates deterrent neurons and inhibits attractant neurons of insect and thus suppresses insect feeding. It also affects insects’ digestive systems, leading to alteration in feeding behavior. Furthermore, it inhibits the secretion of insect digestive enzymes – thus disturbing digestion, absorption and metabolism.

INSECT GROWTH REGULATION (IGR) EFFECTS
BIOVECTROL® 612EC has IGR effect – one of the strongest and predominant impact on immature insect pests. It disrupts molting hormone secretion and retards insect growth. IGR effects during the immature stages cause growth irregularities, resulting in the prevention of larvae growth, pupation and adult emergence.

REPRODUCTION SUPPRESSION
BIOVECTROL® 612EC significantly delays oviposition and cause a reduction in insect egg production, thus impairing reproduction ability of insect pests.

INSECT FITNESS DISRUPTION
BIOVECTROL® 612EC exhibits complex effects involving antifeedant, digestion, growth, reproductive disruption and other physiological impacts make insects weak, leading to natural mortality or predisposes them to insecticides, biological and beneficials in an agro-ecocsytem.

OVIPOSITION DETERRENCE
BIOVECTROL® 612EC treated plant surfaces are less preferred by insect pests for egg deposition.

OVICIDAL ACTIVITY
BIOVECTROL® 612EC impairs the development or hatchability of eggs upon contact. The degree of ovicidal activity varies amongst different groups of insects.

SYSTEMIC EFFECTS
BIOVECTROL® 612EC exhibits systemic activities when applied through soil, seedling root dips, seed treatments and tree injections. The most pronounced systemic effects are antifeedant and growth inhibition activities. Pests affected by systemic effects include caterpillars, beetles, whiteflies, leafminers, mites, aphids, thrips, etc.

PEST REISTANCE SUPPRESSION
BIOVECTROL® 612EC is an ideal tool for preventing or delaying insect resistance due to the reduction of mixed function oxidase (MFO) levels in insects, which contributes to the reduction of resistance possibilities amongst insect pests. The property of insect resistance possibilities reduction – due to its interference with the MFO synthesis – will help to manage, prohibit or delay resistance in key pests.

PLANT GROWTH STIMULATION / ENHANCEMENT
BIOVECTROL® 612EC will enhance plant health and possibly stimulates yields. It will show enhancement in photosynthesis and assimilate translocation, resulting in healthier plants with higher yields.

PREVENTION OF FUNGAL, VIRAL AND BACTERIAL INFECTION
BIOVECTROL® 612EC anti-fungal, anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties protect plants against infections. Its insect control properties will significantly reduce insect feeding, thus minimizing incidences of plant infections.

IMPROVEMENT OF SOIL CONDITIONS
BIOVECTROL® 612EC is effective against nematodes, fungi, virus and bacteria present in the soil and at the same time, more organic matters are being introduced into the soil – thus improving soil conditions for a better farming environment.

ENVIRONMENTAL AND ECO-FRIENDLY
BIOVECTROL® 612EC offers a holistic approach to extremely safe and effective insect pest management.

PLANT GROWTH STIMULANT / ENHANCEMENT
BIOVECTROL® 612EC is known to enhance plant health and possibly yields. It will show enhancement in photosynthesis and positive assimilate translocation thus promoting plant health.

HARMLESS / LOW IMPACT TO NATURAL ENEMIES
BIOVECTROL® 612EC is practically harmless to honeybees, earthworms, predators and parasites under normal out-door application conditions.

NON-PHYTOTOXIC
No phytotoxicity is observed on most crops at recommended / practical dosages.
