Description

Application:

MOTOROL Orchard Spray Oil is specifically recommended for spraying on the apple orchards, in the form of an emulsion in water, so as to control the disease caused by the attack of a pest called San Jose scale. The spraying of the emulsion dissolves the waxy protective shield of the insect and the oil film envelops it thus forming a barrier, which cuts off its air supply. The pests are choked to death due to suffocation or respiratory failure.

To make a stable and homogeneous emulsion, the oil should be added to the water and not vice versa, with continuous stirring. MOTOROL Orchard Spray Oil can also be used for protection of eucalyptus, cinchona etc.
