Azoxy 95 Fungicide (active constituent Azoxystrobin) is an effective xylem systemic fungicide that delivers excellent protection for up to 28 days against a wide spectrum of turf diseases. Disease controlled includes Anthracnose, Brown Patch, Winter Fusarium, Grey Leaf Spot, Helminthosporium, Pythium and Red Thread.
Azoxystrobin is transported acropetally (upwards) in the xylem. This systemic translocation and translaminar movement combined contributes to even distribution and longevity of the active ingredient within the plant tissue.
Azoxystrobin is a member of the strobiluron fungicides group, and acts on the fungal pathogen outside and inside the plant at the early stages of infection and stop disease development by interfering with ATP biosynthesis in fungal mitochondria.
Azoxystrobin has excellent protective activity; best results will be achieved when Azoxy 95 Fungicide is applied prior to infection as a preventative. Preventative dictates that application begins when conditions are favourable for disease infection and at the very beginning of disease infection. When first symptoms are already visible Azoxy 95 Fungicide should be tank-mixed with a suitable early curative fungicide.
Azoxy 95 Fungicide contains 95g/L azoxystrobin (strobiluron) and forms a micro-emulsion on dilution with water and may be tank mixed with many commonly used fungicides and growth regulators. Turf Culture specifically designed the formulation for use in sensitive turf plants. As a result most of the management concerns for superintendents and turf managers have been addressed.
Features and Benefits
Azoxy 95 Fungicide is compatible with the following active constituents;
Tank mixing Azoxy 95 Fungicide with chlorothalonil will improve the efficacy by acting on two fronts. Chlorothalonil acts as a contact fungicide on the outside of leaves, preventing new infections. Azoxy 95 Fungicide will protect systemically on the inside of leaves.
The longevity of fungicides is generally extended when used in conjunction with a growth regulation programme of trinexapac-ethyl (Astro 120 ME Growth Regulator).
