Wettable powder miticide
Omite 300W provides effective control of damaging mites in pome fruit, stone fruit, strawberries, bananas, beans, hops, ornamental plants, tomatoes and other vegetables.
Omite 300W Benefits:
- Kills mites resistant to other chemicals
- Specifically targets plant-feeding mites
- Active on motile mites
- Gentle to predatory mites & other beneficials
- Ideal for IPM
- Short withholding period
- Improves fruit quality & yield
- Persists on the leaf to give residual action
RELIABLE CONTROL OF PLANT-FEEDING MITES
Mode of action
Propargite, the active ingredient in Omite, acts as a repellant that results in increased movement, giving motile mites more opportunities to make contact with the spray deposit. Once contact is made, mite feeding stops, egg-laying decreases and a slow, fatal paralysis occurs.
Mite adults and nymphs are usually controlled within five to seven days after treatment. New hatchings of mites are also controlled in a few days. Since Omite is gentle on beneficial insects and mite predators, they are left to clean up stragglers and feed on newly hatched nymphs.
Use Omite early
Early treatment of low-level populations is recommended as the most effective means of control.
Ideal for IPM
Omite is specific to mites and doesn't affect bees, predator mites or beneficial insects, and is therefore ideal for integrated pest management programs. However, spraying during flowering is not a recommended practice with any pesticide.
Short withholding period
The withholding period for Omite 300W is three to seven days, meaning it can be applied close to harvest if necessary.
Omite is not systemic in action, therefore coverage of both upper and lower leaf surfaces and fruit is necessary for effective control. Further application may be required later in the season.
Omite 300W is safe to stone fruits and apples when applied under normal conditions. However, there are two conditions known to increase the chance of Omite 300W producing crop phytotoxicity:
- High temperature, resulting in burning of the plant tissue.
- Slow drying conditions, are generally associated with high humidity and low temperatures. Under these conditions, Omite dries slowly on the plant, and is absorbed into the plant tissue causing tissue damage.
To ensure Omite continues to protect orchards from mites for many years, Omite should be applied in a resistance management program. Rotation of different miticides from different chemical groups is essential to prevent resistance
