Mode of Action
MARGOSOM ® 1% EC disrupts the growth cycles of insects and deters them from feeding on plants.
The mode of action of azadirachtin may be due to interference with the neuroendocrine system controlling ecdysone and juvenile hormone synthesis. It also inhibits the release of ecdysone from the hormone-producing gland of insects resulting in moulting inhibition thereby antifeedant action is seen. In addition, azadirachtin causes inhibition of chitin synthesis.
