Demite is an emulsdifiable concentrate formulation containing 570grm Propargite (a.i) per kg of formulation. It is an Acaricide used for the control of mites in Tea, Chili, Apple & Brinjal. Mites, like insects play an important role in agricultural production. The role may be a negative one, so far as production is concerned, in that several species infest crops and agricultural produce, and many bring about serious deterioration and consequent losses. Some of the mites are known to be vectors of certain virus diseases of plants. On the other hand, there are certain species which act as parasites and predators of injurious insects and mites, and which indirectly help to prevent losses that might otherwise be caused by different insect and mite pests of crops.
