Buprofezin Biochemistry Chitin synthesis inhibitor, type 1 (Homopteran), with subsequent effects on cuticle deposition. It also has effects on the hormone levels of nymphs associated with moulting and on prostaglandin synthesis.
Buprofezin Mode of action Persistent insecticide and acaricide with contact and stomach action; not translocated in the plant. Inhibits moulting of nymphs and larvae, leading to death. Also suppresses oviposition by adults; treated insects lay sterile eggs.
Buprofezin Uses Insecticide with persistent larvicidal action against Homoptera, some Coleoptera and also Acarina. Effective against Cicadellidae, Deltocephalinae (leafhoppers) and Delphacidae (planthoppers) in rice, at 50-250 g/ha; Coccinellidae (ladybirds) in potatoes; Aleyrodidae (whiteflies) in citrus, cotton and vegetables, at 250-750 g/ha; Coccidae, Diaspididae (scale insects) and Pseudococcidae (mealybugs) in citrus and top fruit, at 25-50 g/hl; Tarsonemidae in vegetables, at 250-500 g/ha. Suitable for IPM programmes.
Buprofezin Phytotoxicity Slightly phytotoxic to Chinese cabbage and Japanese persimmon in the glasshouse.
