Cymoxanil is a synthetic acetamide compound, It acts as a curative fungicide for potatoes.
Cymoxanil is a synthetic acetamide compound first developed in 1977. It acts as a curative fungicide for potatoes. Cymoxanil is applied as a foliar spray and acts as a local systemic fungicide. The compound penetrates the leaves rapidly, making it rainfast. As it is local acting however, it is not the most persistant of fungicides and is usually applied in combination with a protective translocatable systemic fungicide, such as mancozeb. Cymoxanil acts by preventing sporulation. Diseases that are treatable with cymoxanil are most members of the Peronosporales order: Phytophthora,Plasmopara, and Peronospora - blights and mildews.
Mode of action Foliar fungicide with protective and curative action. Has contact and local systemic activity, and also inhibits sporulation. Uses Control of Peronosporales, especially Peronospora, Phytophthora, and Plasmopara spp. Normally used in combination with protectant fungicides (to improve residual activity) on a range of crops, including vines, hops, potatoes, and tomatoes. Formulation types WP; WG.
