Mode of Action

VIVA 240 SL is an oxime carbamate that acts as a cholinesterase inhibitor. It blocks the passage of nerve impulses in the nematode/insect, eventually causing total paralysis and death. In the field it displays both contact and systemic activity.

VIVA 240 SL is a highly effective nematicide. It controls a range of nematode/crop situations in fields and plastic houses from bananas to tomatoes. It also controls other soil pests, such as root-eating Diabrotica spp beetles and millipedes by contact action and through its systemic activity, aphids and thrips that attack the seedling and young plant.
