Mode of action: 

PLENARIS™ uses the most advanced seed applied technology, and is the latest addition to the most comprehensive seed treatment portfolio in the industry. Syngenta Seedcare contributes to sustainable downy mildew resistance management which combines multiple modes of action with the best genetics. PLENARIS™ has a new mode of action and controls all races of the genetically variable pathogen, Plasmopara halstedii.

Active ingredient PLENARIS™ contains Oxathiapiprolin* which belongs to the novel chemical group of piperidinyl-thiazole—isoxazolines inhibiting the oxysterol binding homologue (FRAC Code List ©*2017)
Mode of action MAXIM®/CELEST® (Fludioxonil) has a unique mode of action. It belongs to the Phenylpyrrole chemical group, and inhibits a protein kinase involved in a regulatory step of cell metabolism. It is a contact fungicide which inhibits spore germination and germ tube growth.
Symptoms Initially, symptoms of the primary infection are observed in seedling damping-off. If infected plants survive, they will appear stunted and chlorotic mottling is observed on the leaves. Primary infection contributes to economic loss due to the reduction in stand and the development of unproductive heads. If left untreated, the downy mildew will produce zoosporangia, which contributes to secondary infection and survival of the pathogen long-term
Targets Downy mildew on sunflower
Main crops Sunflower
