Benalaxyl 95% TC
Benalaxyl is a systemic fungicide. It was introduced in 1981 and was used for control of oomycetes, particularly fungi of the family Peronosporaceae, Phythophthora plasmopara, and Pythium spp. Its protective function is mainly by inhibiting the germination of pathogenic spores and the growth of mycelium. Its therapeutic function is based on inhibiting the growth of mycelium, and its eradicating effect is mainly by inhibiting the formation of spores. Benalaxyl can be used alone or mixed with other fungicide, such as mancozeb, folpet, etc.
- Common name: Benalaxyl
- IUPAC name: methyl N-phenylacetyl-N-2,6-xylyl-DL-alaninate
- CAS No.: 71626-11-4
- Molecular formula: C20H23NO3
- Molecular weight: 325.4
- State: Solid
- Packing: 25kg (providing additional packing as required)
- Mode of action: Systemic fungicide with protective, curative, and eradicant action. Absorbed by the roots, stems, and leaves, with translocation acropetally to all parts of the plant, including subsequent growth. Protective action is by inhibition of spore germination and of mycelial growth, whilst curative action is by inhibition of mycelial growth, and eradicant action is by inhibition of conidiophore formation.
- Application: Control of Oomycetes, particularly fungi of the family Peronosporaceae, Phytophthora, Plasmopara, Pseudoperonospora, Sclerospora, Bremia, and Pythium spp. Particular uses include control of late blights of potatoes and tomatoes; downy mildews of hops, vines, lettuce, onions, soya beans, tobacco, and other crops; diseases caused by Phytophthora spp. in strawberries; many diseases of flowers and ornamentals; and Pythium spp. on turf. Often used in combination with other fungicides. Applied at 100-240 g/ha.
