Imazalil is used for control of post-harvest disease of citrus, apples, pears and storage diseases in potatoes and rockmelons.
Imazalil is found on a wide variety of fruits and vegetables, but it is primarily used on tubers for storage. Common fungi that are attracted to tubers are Fusarium spp, Phoma spp, and Helminthosporum solani which depreciate the crop quality.
In addition, the antifungal agent is commonly used on citrus fruits..
Steroid demethylation (ergosterol biosynthesis) inhibitor.
Mode of action
Systemic fungicide, with protective and curative action.
Control of a wide range of fungal diseases on fruit, vegetables, and ornamentals, e.g. powdery mildews on cucurbits and ornamentals; powdery mildew on roses; storage diseases (particularly Penicillium, Gloeosporium, Phomopsis, Phoma spp., etc.) of citrus fruit, pome fruit, bananas, and seed potatoes. Also used as a seed dressing, for control of diseases (particularly Fusarium and Helminthosporium spp.) of cereals. It is particularly active against benzimidazole-resistant strains of plant-pathogenic fungi. Typical use rates are: for seed treatment 4-5 g/100 kg seed; for ornamentals and vegetables 5-30 g/hl; and for post-harvest treatment 2-4 g/t fruit.
