  • As a result of its multi-site complex mode of action, antracol is particularly suited for use in spraying programmemes to combat and prevent the selection of resistant population of fungal pathogen
  • Availability of zinc – positive effect on crop as a whole and improves immunity of plants resulting in higher yields and improvement in quality

Recommended Use:

Should be applied as a protectant fungicide

It is converted to an isothiocyanate, which inactivates the sulphahydral (SH) groups in enzymes of fungi. Sometimes the metals are exchanged between mancozeb and enzymes of fungi, thus causing disturbance in fungal enzyme functioning. Other partner cymoxanil has contact and locally systemic activity. It inhibits sporulation in fungi.

Recommended Use:

  • It is the best for controlling downy mildew of grapes, late blight of potato and late blight of tomato
  • It is wise to spray at the initiation of the disease symptoms or at probable time of disease occurrence
  • Preventive application of moximate early in season helps in preventing disease outbreak late in season
