Vydate® 100 GR Insecticide/Nematicide

Vydate® 100 GR – Reliable Nematicide For Systemic Pest Control

DuPont™ Vydate® 100 GR is a broad-spectrum nematicide for reliable systemic control of labeled above and below ground pests in many crops, including sugarcane, tobacco, bananas, tomatoes and potatoes.

The active ingredient in Vydate® 100 GR is oxamyl, a carbamate cholinesterase inhibitor which acts on the enzyme acetylcholinesterase, to reversibly inhibit its function to transmit nerve impulses. Inhibition of acetylcholinesterase causes persistent firing of nerve pulses leading to nerve dysfunction.

Vydate® Nematicide acts by contact on Nematodes and affects them in different ways:

  • Causes paralysis (nematostatic properties)
  • Inhibits movement and orientation towards roots
  • Inhibits root penetration and feeding, often leading to death
  • Decreases reproduction
  • Inhibits egg development & hatching

Vydate® effectively protects sugarcane, tobacco, tomato and potato crops during the critical phase of establishment and early growth from nematode attack and damage, namely: Meloidogyne spp. (rootknot), Pratylenchus spp, Rotylenchus spp. and other nematode species.

Vydate® 100 GR is very selective, allowing an early application to the soil at planting to protect the crop during the initial growth phases.

Vydate® 100 GR inhibits the development of nematodes and allows the plants to establish a strong root system and maintain a nematode-free root zone for a longer period.

For best results with the Vydate® 100 GR as a soil applied nematicide (in furrow):

  • Do not apply on dry soil
  • A wet soil enhances the penetration of the product to the root zone
  • Apply to a weed free field
  • Use the maximum dose rate in case of high levels of nematode populations
