Technical Specifications

  • Mode of Action

    • Tricyclazole inhibits polyhydroxynapthaline reductase enzyme and thus inhibiting melanin formation in fungi (Pyricularia grisea). 
    • In the absence of melanin, appressoria fails to produce penetrating hypha or penetration hypha fails to penetrate into host tissue. Hence disease is not allowed to spread. 
    • It does not allow the fungus to establish by preventing its entry into the plant system. 
    • It is highly systemic in action thus it is rapidly gets absorbed by rice leaves and roots and is translocated toward the leaf tip which suggests its xylem transport.
    • There is also movement from a treated leaf to non-treated younger leaves.

Always read and follow label directions.
