Insecticide based on Dalmatian chrysanthemum extract
JOPI is an extract from flowers of Tanacetum cinerariifolium (Dalmatian chrysanthemum), formulated with vegetable oils (principally soya oil). This is a broad-spectrum insecticide which acts by contact, and owes its activity to its effect on the sodium pump of the insect’s neurons, with a characteristic “knockdown” effect.
JOPI is obtained from a species of chrysanthemum (Tanacetum cinerariifolium), and is characterised by its low toxicity to man and other mammals, and its low environmental impact because of its short life (it is decomposed by sunlight and exposure to the air). Its shock effect and repellent action against a broad range of species of insects should be emphasised. The risk of the appearance of resistance is low.

Once the pest has been detected, soaking the aerial part of the plant well is recommended, due to its mode of action by contact.
