It is a specially systemic fungicide. The product is rapidly absorbed by rice plant and translocated towards leaf tips. It is a protectant fungicide that prevents the fungus from penetrating the plant. Inhibition occurs when the fungus attempts to penetrate and establish an infection site inside the plant. In rice blast, the melanin pigment is needed for the hardening of the appressorium and inhibition of the pigment formation in appressorium makes it unable to mechanically penetrate the host plant.Very stable fungicide- not readily destroyed by sunlight and moisture.It is recommended for the control of blast disease of rice. It provides control against blast incidence that occurs at various growth stages of rice crop viz., leaf blast, stem blast, and panicle blast.
