Disease Control


GALILEO is Systemic fungicide for control of Sheath blight of Paddy and yellow rust of Wheat.

Benefits and Features

Key Benefit


Fungicide with unique combination of chemistries and exhibit surface diffusion and Xylem mobility for disease control


Galileo logo
  • Picoxystrobin has the ability to move from the vapour phase into the plant and then to be transported systemically within the xylem
  • It also demonstrates xylem mobility.
  • This movement is slow and even and does not lead to rapid accumulation at the tip.
  • None of the current competitor strobilurins demonstrate surface diffusion and Xylem mobility.
  • It has unique redistribution properties viz Systemic and Translaminar movement, diffusion in the wax layer, redistribution by air, Axial redistribution.

Technical Specifications

  • Mode of Action

    Picoxystrobin comes under FRAC Group 11. It is a Quinone outside inhibitor (QoI). QoIs are chemical compounds which act at the Quinone outer binding site of the cytochrome bc1 complex. Binds to the protein ubiquinol oxidase in respiratory Complex III
    Stops growth of plant pathogenic fungi by blocking cell respiration (Inhibits electron transfer in mitochondria)

Always read and follow label directions.
