Movento 100 SC

Movento 100SC is a proven and highly effective solution for controlling a range of sucking pests in fruit crops, including:

• Armoured scales in Kiwifruit.
• Mealybug in Grapes.
• Apple leafcurling midge and armoured scales in Apples.
• Kelly's citrus thrips, Australian citrus whitefly and armoured scales in Citrus.
• Pear leafcurling midge in Pears.
• Thrips and mealybug in Blueberries.

Movento 100SC is unique in that it has two-way systemicity in plants. This means it moves both upwards and downwards and can therefore reach pests that cannot be directly targeted by spray coverage. Movento 100SC has fully researched and tested in-built adjuvants that optimise the uptake into plant leaves. Additional adjuvants are not required. Movento 100SC is compatible with IPM systems, being harmless or only slightly harmful to common beneficials.

Application Rate/Timing Apple leafcurling midge
Apply 48 ml/100 L water (minimum 960 ml/ha) to coincide with periods of peak ALCM egg laying. Apply between mid-November and mid-December for control of the second generation and again between mid-January and early February for control of the third generation.

Pear leafcurling midge
Apply 48 ml/100 L water (minimum 960 ml/ha) to coincide with periods of peak pear leafcurling midge egg laying, either just prior to or immediately after flowering. 

Armoured scales
Apply 48 ml/100 L water (minimum 960 ml/ha) to target scale crawler release periods. For the first generation San Jose scale control apply between mid-November and early December, and for the second generation as required from late January to the second week of February. For oystershell scale control (South Island only) apply between mid-December and mid-January.  There is a risk of fruit russet occurring to russet-prone varieties when applied under cold or slow-drying conditions.

Apply 150 ml/100 L of water (minimum 750 ml/ha) in 500 L of water/ha. Make a maximum of two applications when new season shoots are 20-50cm long, or just prior to flowering or immediately after flowering. Do not apply later than 10 days after flowering.

Armoured scales
