Marshal (Insecticides) is a cyhalothrin-based organic compound that is used as a pesticide. It is a pyrethroid, a class of synthetic insecticides that mimics the structure and insecticidal properties of the naturally occurring pyrethrin which comes from the flowers of chrysanthemums.
- It is highly effective against aphids, sucking and chewing insects, spider mites, caterpillars, thrips, whiteflies, etc.
- Marshal is indicated for combating insect pests of the following crops: Tomatoes, cotton, Macademia, grapes, peas, maize, sorghum, potatoes, dry beans, sweet corn, green beans, and controlling cutworm of all crops.
Active ingredients in Marshal (Insecticides)
- Lambda-cyhalothrin (pyrethroid) 50 g/ℓ
- Lambda-Cyhalothrin 2.5 E.C.
Marshal (Insecticides) benefits
- Faster uptake and symptoms.
- Highest levels of long-term insect control.
- Greater consistency in a wider range of weather conditions.
- Make the mixture as indicated by half filling the spray tank with clean water.
- Afterward, start agitation and add the required amount.
- Fill with water to the required volume.
Apply using a conventional high-volume sprayer with hollow cone nozzles, giving a medium to fine droplet for adequate and even distribution. Do not spray wet plants.
- Aerial application of Marshal may only be done by a registered Aerial Application Operator.
- Ensure that the spray mixture is distributed evenly over the target area and that the loss of spray material during application is restricted to a minimum.
- It is therefore essential that the following criteria be met:
- Volume: A spray mixture volume of 30 ℓ per hectare is recommended.
- Droplet coverage: 30 to 40 droplets per cm² must be recovered at the target area.
- Stop spraying if the wind speed exceeds 15 km/h.
- Stop spraying under turbulent, unstable, and dry conditions during the heat of the day.
- Spraying under temperature inversion conditions (spraying in or above the inversion layer) and/or high humidity conditions (relative humidity 80% and above) may lead to:
- reduced efficacy due to suspension and evaporation of small droplets in the air (inadequate coverage).
- damage to other sensitive crops and/or non-target areas through drifting of the suspended spray cloud away from the target field.
