An innovative combination of power and adaptability.
The key advantage of Imtrex® over other SHDI fungicides is its versatility. It provides top-level protection against key diseases in both wheat and barley crops in a tank-mix with a triazole like Opus®. Imtrex’s systemic movement and residual activity allow it to be used early, so there’s a long window for the two applications that can be made each season.
In wheat, Imtrex is registered to control brown rust, powdery mildew, septoria (or speckled) leaf blotch and stripe rust, and to provide protection against glume blotch.
In barley, Imtrex will control leaf rust, both the net and spot forms of net blotch, powdery mildew and scald, and suppress ramularia.
The active ingredient in Imtrex, fluxapyroxad, belongs to the FRAC Group 7, SDHI mode of action group.
Fluxapyroxad quickly disrupts the energy supply within the fungus, stopping fungal growth to protect the plant.
Imtrex is taken up via the stem and foliage and translocated upwards and outwards to provide some protection of new growth.
Although the combination of high levels of activity and mobility results in exceptional preventative activity, thorough coverage of the crop is still necessary to achieve the best results.
