Crop protection paraffin oils
Our paraffinic oils are used as insecticides and acaricides to protect crops. They also have a fungicidal effect and may be used to fight diseases such as Sigatoka or powdery mildew.
Paraffin oil has a physical mode of action: the oil film covers and smothers the insect eggs and larvae. It also forms a barrier that can prevent the transmission of certain diseases or the arrival of spores. This explains our products' broad spectrum of action without any known development of resistance.
Paraffin oils may also be used as adjuvants with active insecticidal, fungicidal and herbicidal substances. They can have various synergies with these substances such as, for example, limiting the development of resistance to them.
