• Tolfenpyrad is a unique with its novel chemistry and belongs to pyrazole group
  • Inhibits cellular respiration in mitochondria
  • Globally, Tolfenpyrad has been developed to control wide range of insect pests viz. Hoppers, Aphids, Diamond Back Moth, Tobacco Caterpillar (Spodoptera), Bugs, Scale insects, Psylla, Thrips, Borers, Leaf miners, Mites, etc. and some fungal diseases on Vegetables, Fruits, Field crops
  • In India, it has been approved for usage on DBM & Sucking pests like Thrips, Jassid, Aphids, Whitefly (early instar), etc
Trade Name: Tolwin
Active Ingredient: Tolfenpyrad
Formulation Type: 15% EC

Mode of

  • Tolfenpyrad is a METI (Mitochondrial Complex I Electron Transfer Inhibitor ‘Energy metabolism’) compound which acts through contact and ingestion
  • Inhibits the electron transport chain in the mitochondria of the cell, leading to the cessation of the production and supply of the energy in the cell, resulting in the death of the target pest


  • Broad Spectrum activity against wide range of Sucking & Chewing pests
  • Moderate ovicidal activity (Effective for all growing stages) and suppression of oviposition, lack of fecundity, ceases feeding & eventually death of insects
  • Antifeedant action - Target pests stops feeding immediately after coming in contact
  • Active on all developmental stages of insect i.e. eggs, larva/ nymphs & adults
  • Different MOA plays an effective tool for IRM and by rotating with other products to prevent resistance development


  • Shake well before use
  • Applications should be made immediately after the spray solution is prepared
  • Ensure thorough and uniform coverage
  • For effective results, should be used at the initial stage of the crop and insect
  • Rotate with insecticide of different mode of action to avoid resistance development
  • Avoid spray if the rains are expected earlier than 6 hours
