MODE OF ACTION: The insecticide combines contact and stomach poison action for the thorough control of insect pests on crops and in the soil. It is dispersed acropetally and possesses excellent root systemic action.  It works by interfering with the transmission of stimuli in the nervous system of the insect by blocking the nicotinergic neuron pathway thus preventing the transmission between nerves causing paralysis and death of the insect.  

Half fill the spray tank with the required amount of water. Add the required quantity of ACCENT 600 SC and stir. Add the rest of the required amount of water and continue agitating even while spraying. Apply at first signs of infestation. Ensure even coverage of leaf surface.
