Calypso® 480 SC

Calypso® is a Systimic contact insecticide that has been developed by BCS mainly for foliar applications providing effective control of a broad spectrum of sucking and chewing pests. It has better activity against certain Lepidopteran pests. Calypso® acts as an acute contact and stomach poison, combining systemic properties with relatively low application rates and superior plant compatibility. Calypso® is a new tool for resistance management in apple codling moth control and where organo-phosphates, carbamates and pyrethroids have been traditionally used.

Compatibility:
Consult the local label/distributor
How to apply:
foliar application for vegetables use 600-800 lit /ha according to plant size
For fruit trees use 800-1000 lit /ha to ensure good coverage
Formulation:
Calypso® 480 SC is a suspension concentrate containing 480 g/l thiacloprid
Mode of action:
Calypso® selectively binds to the postsynaptic nicotinergic receptor, thus disturbing signal transmission in the insect’s nervous system. Due to this mode of action, there is no cross resistance to conventional insecticides. This mode of action is different from organo-phosphates, carbamates and pyrethroids
