Thifluzamide 96% TC
Thifluzamide is an aromatic amide obtained by formal condensation of the carboxy group of 2-methyl-4-(trifluoromethyl)thiazole-5-carboxylic acid with the amino group of 2,6-dibromo-4-(trifluoromethoxy)aniline.
Used to control Rhizoctonia spp. diseases on rice, potatoes, maize, grass, and other crops. It has a role as an EC 188.8.131.52 [succinate dehydrogenase (quinone)] inhibitor and an antifungal agrochemical. It is an aromatic amide, an aromatic ether, an organofluorine compound, a member of 1,3-thiazoles, a dibromobenzene, and an anilide fungicide.

- Application: Control of a wide range of Basidiomycete fungi on rice, cereals, field crops, and turf, by foliar application and as a seed treatment. It is particularly effective for foliar treatment of Rhizoctonia, Puccinia, and Corticium, and for seed treatment of Ustilago, Tilletia and Pyrenophora. Applied as a foliar treatment in rice at 50-150 g/ha; higher rates (200-300 g/ha) are required when used in rice as a seedling box treatment. Registered for use in rice (Japan, China, Korea), turf (Japan), and potatoes (Latin America).
