Nico Dust is a nicotine based pesticide formulated in a unique way. It possesses all the
positive qualities of Nicotine Sulphate, eliminating its shortcomings i.e. high volatility,
causing handling difficulty and low persistency requiring frequent application.
Nicotine Alkaloid is trapped in situ in free fatty acids contained in a natural product. The
resultant fatty acid salt of nicotine has a higher degree of persistence as compared to
Nicotine Sulphate, yet leaving no residue on crop.
Nico Dust can be directly applied on soil furrows to control many soil borne pests.
It can be “swing-fogged” on crop plants to control insect damage, particularly

Its effectiveness increases, if dusting of the crop plant is done soon after
