Seed applied slug repellent.

RAPPEL® is a world first seed treatment directly applied to seed giving individual seedling protection through establishment.

Slug baits have been the industry standard for controlling mollusks in establishing crops around the world. In recent years bait applications have received increased scrutiny due to environmental concerns.

OptiTech recognised the need to replace slug baits and created a new way to protect the seedling, any seedling, at source. From within the plant.

RAPPEL® is able to be applied to brassica, pasture, maize and cereal seed for the purpose of repelling slugs during plant establishment.
