Mode of action

Cymoxanil is a penetrant fungicide with protectant and curative activity. Its post-infection activity stops the development of the fungus during the incubation. Local systemic action: it is able to penetrate the crop leaf and improves the effectiveness of companion fungicides, especially during periods of intensive disease pressure.Alone, it has a very short period of activity: two days at most. Therefore It is used in two-, or in three-way mixtures with protectants and/or systemic fungicides.

It inhibits different metabolic processes and promotes the natural defenses of the plant.
