other name: methyl N-(2,6-dimethylphenyl)-N-(methoxyacetyl)-DL-alaninate
CAS No.: [ 57837-19-1 ]
Molecular Formula: C15H21NO4
Metalaxyl is used for control of phytophthora root rot of avocados, phytophthora root rot and trunk canker of macadamia nuts, phytophthora trunk rot of peaches, damping off of certain vegetable crops.
Key Features and Benefits of using Metalaxyl
Biochemistry: Inhibits protein synthesis in fungi, by interference with the synthesis of ribosomal RNA.
Mode of action: Systemic fungicide with protective and curative action, absorbed through the leaves, stems, and roots.
Uses: To control diseases caused by air- and soil- borne Peronosporales on a wide range of temperate, subtropical and tropical crops. Foliar sprays with mixtures of metalaxyl and protectant fungicides are recommended to control air-borne diseases caused by Pseudoperonospora humuli on hops, Phytophthora infestans on potatoes and tomatoes, Peronospora tabacina on tobacco, Plasmopara viticola on vines, Bremia lactucae on lettuce, and downy mildews on various vegetables, at 200-300 g/ha. Soil applications of metalaxyl alone are used to control soil-borne pathogens causing root and lower stem rots on avocado and citrus, at 500-1500 g/ha. Seed treatments control systemic Peronosporaceae on maize, peas, sorghum and sunflowers, as well as damping-off (Pythium spp.) of various crops.
