Integrated Pest Management

Principles of IPM

  1. Measures for prevention and/or suppression of harmful organisms
  2. Tools for monitoring
  3. Threshold values as basis for decision-making
  4. Non-chemical methods to take precedence
  5. Target-specificity and minimisation of side-effects to beneficials
  6. Reduction of use to necessary levels
  7. Application of anti-resistance strategies
  8. Records, monitoring, documentation and check of success

AXCELA® can be used in accordance with these principles:

  • 3% formulation uses the minimum active necessary for effective control under wide-ranging conditions
  • Specificity of metaldehyde to slugs minimises effects on beneficials
  • No known resistance even after 60 years of use
