Neo-Tec S.O. Naturally Derived Parasitic Nematode Control
Neo-Tec S.O. is derived from extracts of specific cultivars of hybrid sesame plants. The mode of action includes nematoxic or nemastatic effects, anoxic rhizospheres, disruption of nematode taxis to roots, and disruption of male taxis to females. These results are the basis for the use of sesame for many centuries in crop rotation for its residual nematicidal benefits to crops following sesame.
Each year, millions of acres around the world come under threat of damage due to the activity of parasitic nematodes. Soil samples assessed by diagnostic laboratories around the world are showing the presence of one or more species of those nematodes.
Neo-Tec S.O. is effective on both Ectoparasitic and Endoparasitic Nematodes. Ectoparasitic Nematodes live outside the plant root, and feed only on materials they can reach, while Endoparasitic Nematodes spend at least part of their life cycle inside the roots of the plants on which they feed. Some parasitic nematodes are migratory, and move in and out of root tissues, while some are sedentary and effectively don’t move at all.
Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Strategy
Neo-Tec S.O. naturally derived formulation is a perfect fit for IPM programs. Neo-Tec S.O is compatible with most pesticides, fertilizers and micronutrients and can be used as a tank mix or in rotation programs. Neo-Tec S.O. is labeled both Ornamental and Turf, and may be applied by spray, drip or overhead irrigation systems.
