Vidi Greenpath

Vidi Greenpath is a biological agent based on botanical extract of seed kernels of Pongamia glabra (Karanj tree) used to manage mites and thrips effectively in several crops. The efficacy of Vidi Greenpath is enhanced when applied in combination with Adpro Shootin.

Vidi Greenpath contains alkaloids that work as an Insect Growth Regulator (IGR) and act as an antifeedant agent against eggs, nymphs and adults of mites and thrips. Affected insects become unable to molt or reproduce and eventually die. It also has an ovicidal action on mites and thrips.
