Astramyte is a unique Bio insecticides combination of microbes, alkaloids and metabolites and an indispensable part of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) produced by Metabolite Extract Microbial Technology (MEMT).
In MEMT metabolites are extracted from live microbes through fermentation and extraction process. The metabolites are non-living and highly potent to control various insects and pathogens. Depending upon the metabolites, mode of action can be stomach ingestion, nervous system break-down, cell wall adapters and chitin inhibiters.
Tamron’s Biocides deliver valuable crop protection and help farmers to produce high quality crops. Our zero-residue Biocides enable farmers to access higher-value markets by meeting stringent requirements on pesticide residue levels.
Advantages of MEMT
- The products formulated using this unique technology are
- pure “Biologicals” and does not contain any chemicals.
- Does not contain any living organism thereby having a long shelf-life
- mixture of metabolites to control insects and pathogens by all available mode of actions thereby giving high percentage of longer and residual control.
- Very safe and eco-friendly and does not require to follow PHI (Pre-harvesting Interval)
- Zero Residues
- Cost effective treatment
Product Features –
Astramyte is equally effective in lower dosage.
It gives longer residual control without any side-effects.
It is eco-friendly, non-toxic, zero-residue and cost effective
It can be used with other fungicides, insecticides, manures, fertilizers and bio agents.
Mode of action –
It works on the nervous system of pests to immobilize and kill them in a short time.
The extracts derived from these microbes degrade the cell wall containing chitin, thus altering the ion permeability of cell membranes and killing the insect. Also works as a stomach poison.
Application – Foliar spray, Seed soak, Seedling root dip and Soil drench.
Dosage: 3-5 ml/ litre of water
Target pests – Astramyte works against a variety of mites and other pests.
Target crops – Horticultural crops, Floriculture and Field crops.
