Nimitz Bottle

Nimitz is the first ever safe nematicide allowing an easy application regimen. And it works.

The fast acting and unique mode of action makes new Nimitz a key tool in plant-parasitic nematode management strategies. 

Nimitz is highly effective providing revolutionary control with simple application features and unprecedented user safety. 

Nimitz contains novel chemistry developed globally by Adama and has been extensively trialled around the world since 2007. More than a thousand trials have been conducted across 23 countries, over all continents, in multiple crops and on various nematode types and species.

Nimitz provides excellent control of key nematode pests in many crops maximising crop potential and grower returns.

Nimitz can be safely and easily applied using existing application methods making it a simple alternative to current  options.

In field trials, Nimitz has consistently demonstrated equivalent or better nematode control when compared with current standard nematicides and in many trials, the greater nematode control achieved by Nimitz has resulted in a significant increase in marketable yield.

What are Nematodes?

What are Nematodes?

04 Nematodes body

Nematodes – also known as roundworms or eelworms – are the most numerous multicellular animals on the planet, numbering more than 28,000 known species. With soil samples often containing in excess of millions of individual nematodes per square metre, it is estimated they account for around 80% of all individual animals on earth.

Plant parasitic nematodes are among the most destructive and problematic pests for growers around the world, severely impacting crop development and yield. These nearly invisible killers affect a variety of crops globally and are responsible for an estimated $125 billion in annual yield losses.
Crops in serious danger include Tomatoes, Capsicums, Melons and other cucurbits, Carrots, cereals, Strawberries, Potatoes, Sugarcane, fruit trees, Soybeans, leafy vegetables and many others.
Because these organisms are unseen, they can often appear to be less of a threat than they really are. Nematodes typically do most of their work, and damage, invisibly beneath the soil. By interfering with the roots and reducing the plant’s ability to extract water and nutrients, crop productivity is almost always affected.
In addition to the direct damage they cause to crops, even in low populations, nematodes enable easy penetration of other soil diseases to roots, creating more problems for the plant including affecting the external appearance of the harvested crops.
Not all nematodes are responsible for crop damage. Nematodes may be saprophytic (feeding on broken down organic matter), predaceous (feeding on other nematodes, bacteria, fungi or even smaller organisms), entomopathogenic (feeding on insects) or plant parasitic (feeding on plants).
Beneficial nematodes include those that feed on soil borne insects, bacteria and fungi that are harmful to plants, making them an important part of the soil microbiology.
