Abstract:Zectran® is the Dow trademark for 4-dimethylawino-3, 5- xylyl methylcarbamate. It has a wide spectrum of insecticidal activity as shown by laboratory tests. Zectran exhibits residual insecticidal properties on inert sl1l'faces.On plants it is residual, both by foliar and soil applications, and is systemically toxic to insects. Zectran is relatively nonvolatile. It deteriorates insecticidally under alkaline conditions and under simulated sunlight using ultra-violet light.
