Imidacloprid is a systemic insecticide from the nitroguanidine class, targeting the nervous system of piercing-sucking pests without cross-resistance issues. Its action as an agonist to the nicotinic acetylcholine receptor disrupts pest signal transmission, offering broad-spectrum efficacy with minimal environmental impact. Notably safe for humans, animals, and beneficial organisms, it combines low toxicity with low residue, reducing the likelihood of pest resistance. With rapid action and sustained effectiveness for up to 25 days, imidacloprid excels in performance, especially under higher temperatures. It is designed for versatility, providing contact killing, stomach poisoning, and systemic protection against a wide range of pests, making it a cornerstone in modern pest management strategies.

Application/Usage: Imidacloprid showcases versatile application methods, including seed dressing, soil treatment, and foliar sprays, catering to a broad array of crops such as rice, cotton, cereals, maize, sugar beet, potatoes, vegetables, and various fruits. Its translaminar activity ensures effective distribution within plants, offering root-systemic action that extends protection against a diverse group of insects like rice water weevil and Colorado beetle, alongside common pests such as aphids, thrips, and whitefly. While ineffective against nematodes and spider mites, imidacloprid's optimal dosing ranges from 25-100 g/ha for foliar treatments to 350-700 g/100 kg for cotton seed, highlighting its adaptability in pest control.
