A fungicide is a type of pesticide that is used to control or eliminate fungi and fungal diseases in plants. Fungal diseases can cause significant damage to crops by reducing growth, yield, and quality, as well as by causing decay and spoilage during storage and transport.
During the growth period of crops or plants, they are the most delicate in nature. A fungicide helps to inhibit or prevent the growth of fungi on plants, roots or seeds.
Fungicides are high efficacy and cost-saving methods when farmers meet different crops diseases. while it is also low toxicity for human and environment. It will higher yields and income compare with Non-systematic prevention and control of crop diseases.
In daily application, farmers may use pesticides in non-standard ways, resulting in decreased efficacy even phytotoxicity and causing production losses. Therefore, farmers are reminded to pay attention to the following points:
Obey the product application rule.
Before application, it is necessary to carefully read the product label information, like product feature, usage and dosage, and cautions, etc.
It is better to use the secondary dilution method, that is, first dilute and mix the fungicide with a small amount of water, then add water to the required concentration, and mix while adding water to keep the concentration of the solution uniform, so as not to affect its efficacy.
Emphasize "prevention first" and rational application in time
Prevention is more important than treatment, and the effect of disease prevention is better than that of disease treatment. Therefore, it is necessary to use fungicides early to prevent diseases, that is, to take measures not to make plants sick, such as seed treatment or seed coating defense; it has been predicted that a certain disease will be prevalent, so early field application of pesticide protection is required.
Delay fungicide resistance
It is easy to make crop disease resistant by only one fungicide in long time, so it is better to use different mode of action fungicide products alternately.
