The alternative for integrated slug control
Ironmax Pro is the ideal partner to leading metaldehyde slug pellets such as the De Sangosse TDS range. The active substance is ferric phosphate. Used in integrated programmes, it provides excellent control with effective stewardship.
Gain the same high quality
Trials and user experience show that Ironmax Pro delivers the same performance as De Sangosse premium TDS metaldehyde slug pellets, simply with a different mode of action.
Superb bait is vital. So we manufacture Ironmax Pro with the finest durum wheat using our wet process. With an optimum 2.7mm pellet size, it offers equal palatability, persistence and ballistics, and is subject to identical quality control.
How Ironmax Pro works
Ironmax Pro is a stomach poison; once eaten there is no recovery.
Ferric phosphate stops the slug feeding almost immediately, but the pest often retreats below the soil surface and dies three and six days after application. For this reason, the effects can be less obvious than with metaldehyde (no slime trails will be visible), so look for protection of the crop rather than dead slugs.
Excellent safety profile
Like metaldehyde, the ferric phosphate in Ironmax Pro has very low impact on non-target organisms such earthworms and beetles. You can apply it with confidence every time.
Use Ironmax Pro as part of an integrated slug control programme, at 5-7 kg/ha. Follow Integrated Pest Management techniques and ensure your application machinery is correctly calibrated, ideally using the De Sangosse Placebo-Pellet.
