Mode of Action

Majestene's novel, bacteria-based (non-living) active ingredient possesses true nematicidal activity against eggs, juveniles and adult nematodes.

Majestene Efficacy

Majestene has proven effective in nematode control to reduce damage to crops.

Nematodes in the soil
– They stop moving within 24 hours after treatment with Majestene
– Nematodes die 48-72 hours after treatment

When Majestene is in contact with plant roots
– It repulses most nematodes
– If some nematodes get into the roots, they can’t complete their life cycle and they die. There are no new gals formed.

Majestene is systemic and remains in the roots

Majestene showed positive effect on root development
