Fungicides

Mode of action: 
Picarbutrazox

VAYANTIS® is a new, systemic fungicide seed treatment developed to protect corn, soybean, canola, oilseed rape and cereal seedlings from the most important damping off disease caused by Pythium spp. It is a completely new MoA and therefore a very valuable resistance breaker.

VAYANTIS® is a new, systemic fungicide seed treatment developed to protect corn, soybean, canola, oilseed rape and cereal seedlings from the most important damping off disease caused by Pythium spp. In soybeans it also provides also excellent control of root and stem rot caused by Phytophthora sojae. It contains Picarbutrazox, a novel compound from a novel chemistry class called Tetrazoyloximes. The precise mode of action is still under investigation but novel compared to the current available oomycete chemistries. It has no known cross resistance to any other oomycete fungicide compounds and will play a key role in broadening integrated pest management strategies through multiple, effective
modes of action.

Active
Ingredient
VAYANTIS® contains Picarbutrazox which belongs to the novel chemical class of Tetrazoyloximes
Mode of
action

VAYANTIS® (Picarbutrazox) belongs to chemical group Tetrazoyloxime. It has a new mode of action, but it is unknown and has not been confirmed completely. It is hypothesized that Picarbutrazox blocks the phosphatidylcholine pathway, which affects the biosynthesis of phospholipids. This leads to leaky cells and disruption of the normal functioning of the pathogen and affects the cell membrane and cell organelles.​

Portfolio Fit Enhances and complements the performance of APRON® XL (Mefenoxam), DYNASTY® (AmistarTechnology), MAXIM XL (Fludioxonil + Mefenoxam),
