APPLICATIONGS
Inhibits mitochondrial respiration by blocking electron transfer at the Qo centre of cytochrome bc1. Biochemistry
Mesostemic, broad-spectrum fungicide with preventative and specific curative activity and displaying rain-fastness. Redistributed by superficial vapour movement and also has translaminar activity. Mode of action
Broad spectrum fungicide for foliar use on a wide range of agricultural and horticultural crops in temperate, sub-tropical and tropical climates in open fields or protected under glass and plastic. In Europe its uses will be focussed on cereals (at 50 g/ha), grapes (at 187.5 g/ha), pome fruit (at 75 g/ha), and cucurbit crops (at 187.5 g/ha).Trifloxystrobin is active against fungi in all four classes - Ascomycetes, Deuteromycetes, Basidiomycetes and Oomycetes.
