TWIGALAXYL 720 WP is a fungicide with a combination of two active ingredients. Metalaxyl is systemic with protective and curative properties and is absorbed through the leaves, stem and roots. It acts by suppressing sporangial formation ,mycelial growth and the establishment of new infections. On the other hand, Mancozeb is non-systemic with protective and curative action; acting on multiple sites in fungal cells disrupting lipid metabolism, respiration and reproduction. It stays on leaf surfaces protecting the entry of disease pathogens into the plants. It is applied as either foliar spray or soil drench at the rate of 50-100g/20L of water with a post harvest interval of 10 days and should not be used more than 4 times in a season. It should be applied as a preventative treatment when plants display early symptoms of disease or when conditions for disease is favourable and to plants and foliage that are actively growing for good uptake.Since the occurrence of resistant strains can not be forecast; it is advised to use the product on crops under close observation and that a full protection programme be started before risks of infection occur. PACK SIZE: 50g, 100g, 500g, 1kg.
