  • Combination of two modes of action and both preventive and curative action leads to excellent protection against difficult to control diseases and make it an ideal resistance management and IDM tool.
  •  It has unique redistribution properties viz Systemic and Translaminar movement, diffusion in the wax layer, redistribution by air, Axial redistribution.

    These properties deliver complete and better coverage.

Technical Specifications

  • Mode of Action
    • Picoxystrobin a strobilurin fungicide inhibits mitochondrial respiration. Bind at the Qo centre  on cytochrome b and block  electron transfer between cytochrome b and cytochrome c1. This disrupts the energy cycle wihin the fungus by halting production of ATP.
    • Propiconazole a triazole fungicide, inhibits the biosysnthesis of sterols. Blocks the synthesis of ergosterol, a vital phase in the cell metabolism of the parasitic fungi. It triggers a defieciency in lipids essential to he development of cell membranes and blocks mycelium growth.
