Technical Name: Tricyclazole 75 % WP
- This is a specialty blasticide for Rice blast disease control, especially neck blast. For effective control of the blast disease on leaves and panicle, application at right time and at right dose is must.
- It not only controls blast but significantly improves grain quality, grain shining, grain weight (yield) and reduces milling losses.
|Mode of Action||It is a specialty systemic fungicide. The product is rapidly absorbed by rice plant and translocated towards leaf tips. It is a protectant fungicide that prevents the fungus from penetrating the plant. Inhibition occurs when the fungus attempts to penetrate and establish an infection site inside the plant. In rice blast, the melanin pigment is needed for the hardening of the appressorium and inhibition of the pigment formation in appressorium makes it unable to mechanically penetrate the host plant.|
|Application||It should be applied as preventive spray starting from Nursery till grain filling. Application of Baan in nursery is subject to appearance of blast symptoms. After transplanting, first application against leaf blast should commence at tillering stage & second at 5% panicle emergence stage for effective control of blast disease.|
