- Acrobat can control the late blight disease in potato, tomato crops very effectively.
- Acrobat has Translaminar Action - Good uptake into sprayed leaves.
- Acrobat offers a unique and novel mode of action with no cross-resistance to Phenylamide or strobilurine.

Acrobat affects cell wall production in fungi by inhibition of sterol synthesis. It disintegrates cell wall (Cell wall lysis) to kill the pathogen.
