SIMBAA is a highly effective acaricide, widely used across the globe for past few decades. Propargite, the active ingredient of SIMBAA, belongs to a new group of chemical – sulfite ester.

Trade Name: SIMBAA

Common Name: Propargite

Formulation: 57% EC


  • SIMBAA belongs to a new chemistry group which has proven to be safe in use.
  • SIMBAA acts primarily by direct contact, residual contact and vapor action, controlling all stages of mites.
  • SIMBAA is very effective on all harmful mites such as Red spider mite, Two spotted mites, European red mite and Yellow/White mite.
  • SIMBAA also controls motile stages of mites.
  • SIMBAA gives longer protection.
  • SIMBAA gives longer protection.

Mode of Action

  • SIMBAA acts by direct contact, residual contact and vapour action in dense crop canopy.
  • SIMBAA interferes with the key mite enzyme systems, which causes interruption of normal. metabolism, respiration and electron transport functions in the nervous system of mites.
  • SIMBAA kills the nymphs as they emerge from eggs, laid before the spray.
  • Female mites stop laying eggs immediately after coming in contact.


Use 1 to 1.5 litres of SIMBAA per hectare (400 to 600 ml per acre) for field crops. 400 - 600 litres of water with high volume sprayer and 200 - 300 litres of water with low volume sprayer per hectare should be used for effective coverage of entire crop canopy. For plantation crops use 0.75-1.25 l of SIMBAA per hectare. Thorough coverage of entire infested crop canopy is very essential for best results.
