Gaucho is a seed treatment product with excellent systemic properties acting through the roots, ensuring protection of the plant against pests from the time of sowing well into the growing period. It has a broad spectrum of activity, particularly against sucking pests. In the soil, the active ingredient is released from the seed and forms a treatment-halo around the seed. Gaucho is absorbed very efficiently by the germinating plant and is transported in the sap-flow to the stem and leaves. Gaucho fits very well in IPM-systems and the grower is minimally exposed.
