Mode of Action
It is a broad-spectrum systemic fungicide with protective and curative action. It is taken and translocated within the plant as a result of which the latter become fungitoxic. When applied to the roots, the active ingredient passes Inter cellularly into the xylem vessels & it is swept along by the sap stream towards the foliage. When applied to the foliage the fungicide gets into the xylem and spreads to the distal parts of the leaf but not in the opposite direction towards the roots.
It mainly acts by inhibiting development of germ tubes, the formation of appressoria and the growth of mycelia.
It is used in various ways such as seed treatment, soil drench, soil mixture and foliar sprays. It is advisable to use Carbendazim in alternate with contact fungicides or as tank mix application with contact fungicides like Indofil M-45, to manage resistance. For seed/ rhizome/ tuber treatment, dip the seed material at least for 15 minutes. For post harvest dipping, dip for 10 minutes.
It is compatible with commonly used pesticides. It is not compatible with lime sulphur and Bordeaux mixture or alkaline solutions.
No Phytotoxicity observed if used as recommended.
