Fungicides - Amistar®
The fungicidal solution that is inspired by nature
An innovation in plant disease control originally inspired by a species of forest-dwelling mushroom, which produced its own natural fungicide, AMISTAR® and its related brands is now the world’s No1 fungicide. Through its broad-spectrum activity it delivers consistent yield and quality benefits around the world in a broad array of crop types.
The active ingredient, azoxystrobin, belongs to a class of fungicides named strobilurins, which act by inhibiting mitochondrial respiration in fungi, stopping their energy supply. Today, growers use AMISTAR® for fungal control and yield enhancement in cereals such as wheat and barley as well as in vines, fruits, vegetables, bananas, rice, soybeans, corn, turf and ornamentals.
