Dantop Insecticide

Dantop Image

Dantop is a systemic new generation insecticide which is highly effective against chewing and sucking insects. Crops are protected against insect damage by Dantop through its quick knockdown and long residual action. Moreover, it has translaminar action that enables it to kill sucking insects like thrips that stay at the underside of leaves which ordinary systemic insecticides cannot control.

Dantop is registered for use in Mango and Rice.

In rice, Dantop is best used anytime from the seedling stage up to maturity. At the seedbed, it protects the vulnerable young seedlings from sucking pests that include green leafhopper, brown and white-backed planthopper, leaffolders, and stemborers. Available in conveniently packed 3-gram sachets, one “sakto pack” per 16L water can cover a seedbed approximately 300 square meters in size.

In mango, it is recommended against mango hoppers, tip borers, thrips, cecid flies and capsid bugs.

Dantop is a low dose insecticide requiring only 28 g (1 sachet) per 200 L drum spray solution.

Dantop contains 16% Chlothianidin in Water Soluble Granules (WSG)
