Pencycuron 250 SC (25% w/v)
Monceren 250 SC is a non-systematic contact fungicide. It is used as a foliar spray for the control of sheath blight disease of rice and as tuber treatment for the control of black scurf disease in potato. Monceren 250 SC is a protective sheath blight fungicide having contact action and long lasting efficacy; specifically against Rhizoctonia solani. Due to non-systemic nature, development of resistance is not foreseen and hence good tool for fungicide resistance management.
Mode of Action :
It is lipophilic and hence penetrates into the plant cuticle and from there it does not undergo secondary re-distribution into leaf tissue. As a result, a protective layer is formed on the leaf, stem and within the cuticle, which is not washed of due to rain and not subjected to losses by systemic translocation.
As a seed treatment, the product exhibits excellent efficacy against potato black scurf. It inhibits mycelia growth and gives excellent control of sheath blight disease of rice.
