Mode of Action: On soil application of Multiplex NIYANTRAN, the fungal hyphae infest the various harmful nematodes in soil. Infestation starts through the parasitism and penetration of their mycelium to the body and egg of the nematodes resulting in the disruption of lipid and chitin layer of eggshell. Finally, egg contents will be destroyed. The fungus is also capable of invading mature ones.
