The original instructions for the use of the insecticide Ampligo indicate its ability to destroy pests at all stages of development. It is used in the cultivation of most crops. "Ampligo" contains substances that provide its functional advantage over other means.
Description of the drug
Contact-intestinal insecticide of the Swiss production "Ampligo" is aimed at destroying most pests of row crops. This is a new product with an effective and long-lasting effect. Methods of treatment of various plants with the drug "Ampligo" should be specified in the instructions.
The period of protective action of the insecticide "Ampligo" 2-3 weeks
Ampligo belongs to the new generation of insecticides due to its unique composition. It is based on two multidirectional substances. Chloranthraniliprole deprives pests of their ability to contract muscle fibers. As a result, they are completely paralyzed and unable to eat. The action of chloranthraniliprole is directed primarily against lepidopteran insects in the larval stage.
Lambda-cyhalothrin is the second active component of the drug. It activates the nerve impulses of pests. This leads them to a state of inability to control their movements. Lambda cyhalothrin has the necessary effect on a wide range of garden and horticultural pests.
The different direction of action of the two substances that make up the drug prevents the development of resistance to its influence. A special advantage of the insecticide "Ampligo" is its effectiveness against pests in all phases of development:
- eggs - intoxication occurs during gnawing of the shell;
- caterpillars - instant destruction (knockdown effect);
- adult insects - die within 2-3 weeks.
Attention! Lepidoptera caterpillars begin to die 1 hour after spraying and completely disappear by the end of 3 days.
Forms of issue
Insecticide "Ampligo" is produced in the form of a microencapsulated suspension concentrate. This provides two advantageous features:
- The drug lasts much longer.
- High temperatures do not affect its effectiveness.
The volume of the suspension is selected as required from three options: 4 ml, 100 ml, 5 liters.
Recommendations for use
The original instructions for the use of the insecticide "Ampligo" recommend spraying row crops: tomatoes, sunflowers, sorghum, soybeans, corn, cabbage and potatoes. The drug is effective against pests of fruit and ornamental trees and shrubs.
"Ampligo" is effective against a wide range of garden and garden pests
First of all, it is aimed at combating lepidoptera insects. "Ampligo" demonstrates high efficiency against a large number of other types of pests:
- cotton scoop;
- corn stalk moth;
- leaf roll;
- color beetle;
- meadow moth;
- cruciferous flea;
- cicada, etc.
The method of application of the insecticide "Ampligo" is a thorough spraying of plants. The solution is absorbed into the culture surface. An hour later, a dense protective layer is formed that is resistant to solar radiation and precipitation. The substances included in it retain their activity for at least 20 days.
Ampligo insecticide consumption rates
The consumption rate of the insecticide "Ampligo", according to the instructions, is presented in the table:
Tomatoes, sorghum, potatoes
0.4 l / ha
Corn, sunflower, soy
0.2-0.3 l / ha
Apple tree, cabbage
0.3-0.4 l / ha
Crop processing is carried out during the period of mass pest population. An increase in the recommended dosage of the Ampligo insecticide in the instructions can lead to the destruction of the crop. Fruit and berry crops can be sprayed 3 times during the growing season, vegetables - no more than 2 times. The last processing must be done no later than 20 days before harvest. According to the instructions for use, Ampligo insecticide can be sprayed on corn only once a season.
The suspension is dissolved in water just before spraying. A 4 ml package is mixed with 5-10 liters. To prepare 250 liters of solution required for treating a large area of plantations, at least 100 ml of insecticide is required.
For effective treatment of crops with an insecticide, during the preparation of the solution, special attention should be paid to the quality of the water. It is better to take it from open sources, and defend it before using it. In cold water, the suspension does not dissolve well, due to which the quality of spraying suffers. Artificial heating should be avoided as oxygen will escape from it.
Important! The prepared solution can be used only on the day of preparation.
How to apply correctly for processing
Before you start spraying, you need to take care of protecting the skin and mucous membranes. They try to spray the freshly prepared solution quickly, evenly distributing it on all parts of the plant. Delay in work can result in harm to both the crop and the handler. Storing the finished solution for more than several hours is unacceptable.
It is important to pay attention to weather conditions. The ideal air temperature for spraying plants with insecticide is + 12-22 aboutC. The weather must be clear and the land and plants dry. Strong gusty winds can lead to uneven distribution of the substance and its ingress into neighboring areas. Processing is usually carried out in the morning or evening, in the absence of the scorching rays of the sun.
The solution must be evenly distributed throughout the plant.
Insecticide "Ampligo" is sprayed on cabbage, tomatoes or potatoes in accordance with the instructions for use. Two-time processing is allowed, if necessary. Before harvesting, at least 20 days should elapse from the moment of spraying. Otherwise, a dangerous concentration of chemicals will remain in the fruit.
Fruit and berry crops
According to the instructions for use, the Ampligo insecticide is recommended to be used primarily on apple trees. For one young tree, 2 liters of ready-made solution are consumed, for an adult and spreading tree - up to 5 liters. You can harvest the crop 30 days after spraying.
Garden flowers and ornamental shrubs
The dosage of the insecticide for ornamental crops corresponds to that used for the treatment of fruit and berry and vegetable plants. Before spraying, pruning and harvesting of fallen leaves and branches is carried out. The sections are covered with a protective layer of garden varnish. Three-time processing is allowed, if necessary.
Compatibility of Ampligo insecticide with other drugs
The product can be mixed with many other plant protection products. It is unacceptable to combine it with substances that have an acidic or alkaline reaction. In each individual case, it is necessary to check the compatibility of the products so as not to harm the plants.
Pros and cons of using
The improved composition of the insecticide "Ampligo" gives it a number of advantages:
- Does not reduce efficiency when exposed to direct sunlight.
- Does not stop acting after rain, forming a sticky film.
- Acts in a wide range of temperatures - + 10-30 aboutFROM.
- Destroys eggs, caterpillars and adult pests.
- Shows effectiveness against most pests.
- Does not lead to the development of resistance.
- Kills Lepidoptera Caterpillars instantly.
- Remains active for 2-3 weeks.
After spraying, the Ampligo insecticide penetrates into the upper layers of the plant, without getting into its main bed. After a few weeks, it is almost completely destroyed, so the edible part becomes absolutely harmless to humans. It is very important not to harvest earlier than this. For tomatoes, the minimum period is 20 days, for an apple tree - 30.
Attention! Danger to human health is posed by vapors of the drug during spraying, therefore, precautions should be taken.

Reviews of the insecticide Ampligo-MKS
Irina Gorbunova, 45 years old, Krasnoyarsk
On the advice of friends, I bought "Ampligo" to protect the potatoes from the Colorado potato beetle. The seller explained that microencapsulated suspension is an ideal form of insecticide release to promote long-term effects. An hour after spraying, the first beetles began to fall from the leaves. A week later, on my site, there were already clean bushes without a single beetle. Reprocessing was avoided.
Alexander Popov, 53 years old, Belgorod
I have been professionally engaged in agriculture for over 20 years. Last year I tried the insecticide "Ampligo" on a sunflower, strictly adhering to the instructions for use. I processed the seeds before planting. I'm happy with the result. The crop showed high yields and was not attacked by pests throughout the season. Previously encountered aphid attacks due to the dry spring, and the result was many unopened baskets.
