It is included on the list of biocontrol plant protection products.

It is a contact curative treatment with a unique mode of action : it desiccates soft-bodied insects and the aerial organs of pathological fungi. This product has a quick knock-down effect and eradicates disease, perfectly complementing preventive protection.

Furthermore, it is a useful partner in resistance management, owing to its action on multiple sites. Essen’ciel is compatible with the presence of other products and is a perfect addition to integrated biological control (IBC) programmes.

Essen’ciel is one of Vivagro’s core products. It received the Gold Sival award for innovation in 2011. It has been approved for 42 uses since 2012, and 88 uses since November 2017.

• Re-entry time : 24 hours.
