INDOFIL AVTAR FUNGICIDE
Technical Name: Zineb 68% + Hexaconazol 4%
Mode of Action --- It is a unique combination of Contact and systemic fungicide. Its contact part is Zineb which is a broad-spectrum fungicide with protective action. It is fungitoxic when exposed to air and is converted to an isothiocyanate, which inactivates the sulphahydral (SH) groups in enzymes of fungi. Some times the metals are exchanged between Zineb and enzymes of fungi, thus causing disturbance in fungal enzyme functioning. It acts by blocking the metabolism of pathogenic fungus at cellular level, at several stages of Kreb Cycle. Other partner in this combination is Hexaconazole which is an unique highly systemic triazole fungicide, acting as protective, curative and eradicant with strong antisporulant and translaminar action. It is a potent ergosterol biosynthesis inhibitor. Ergosterol, a principal sterol in most fungi is an indispensable component in the membrane structures.
Special Features --- It is an unique combination fungicide, besides controlling many diseases provides Zinc nutrition also Broad-spectrum fungicide, which controls large number of diseases with its multisite and systemic action Gives excellent control of Ascomycetes, Basidiomycetes and Deutromycetes. Best molecule for Alternaria diseases and soil borne fungi especially Rhizoctonia, Fusarium, Sclerotium etc in many crops
Its sprays results in dark green coloured healthy leaves & ultimately increase in yield
Very effective for disease resistance management. It is safe to foliage, blossoms and fruits of many plants. Safe fungicide with low toxicity to mammals, fish, birds and natural enemies
Time of Application --- For better disease management, it is always advisable to remember the maxim – PREVENTION IS ALWAYS BETTER THAN CURE. Generally the sprays of Avtar should start before the appearance of disease or at disease initiation. Repeat the applications at 8-12 days interval depending on climatic conditions and disease severity.
