Mode of action: 

RASCENDO™ (Sulfoxaflor) is a systemic insecticide, acts as a neurotoxin to affected insects, and kills through contact or ingestion. Sulfoxaflor is classified for use against sap-feeding insects as a sulfoximine, which is a sub-group of insecticides that act as nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (nAChR) competitive modulators. Sulfoxaflor binds to nAChRs in place of acetylcholine and causes uncontrolled nerve impulses resulting in muscle tremors followed by paralysis and death.

VISIVIO™ seed treatment is a combination of the insecticides thiamethoxam and sulfoxaflor and the fungicides difenoconazole, metalaxyl-M, fludioxonil and sedaxane.VISIVIO™ is registered in canola, rapeseed and oilseed mustard and controls insects including striped and crucifer flea beetles, and diseases such as seed-borne blackleg, seed-borne Alternaria, and the seedling disease complex (damping-off, seedling blight, seed rot and root rot) caused by Pythium spp., Fusarium spp. as well as offers best in class Rhizoctonia protection.
