What is Kaiso 50WG?

Kaiso 50WG is an easy to use, broad spectrum 5% Lambda-cyhalothrin insecticide that delivers a very fast and robust efficacy against various insects.

Lambda-cyhalothrin is a synthetic pyrethroid that:

  • acts quickly (knock-down effect)
  • is effective at a low rate
  • is active by contact and ingestion on numerous types of insects such as aphids, beetles and caterpillars
  • provides good persistence and also repellent activity

What is SORBIE Technology?

Sorbie Technology is a unique formulation type, developed and patented by Nufarm. Sorbie Technology combines the benefit of Emulsifiable Concentrate (EC) and Wettable Granule (WG) formulations.

It looks like a wettable granule but once added to water, behaves like an emulsion concentrate.

Sorbie Technology has been applied to formulate Lambda-cyhalothrin; this creates a unique pyrethroid insecticide with outstanding features:

  • Handling and safety benefits of a WG: no splash, easy to store, no need to rinse the pack
  • The efficacy benefits of Lambda-cyhalothrin EC: fast knock-down, residual activity and repellency action against various insects
  • Solution stability of an EC: no settling out
  • Reduced solvent load versus a conventional EC
  • Improved user safety: non-flammable, lower skin sensitization issues
  • Residual and broad spectrum performance
