  • This mode of action disrupts cellular processes of germinating fungi, inhibiting their growth and preventing their spread.
  • EcoCarb® also damages cell walls of fungi, resulting in dehydration and death of fungal organisims, providing effective disease control.
  • EcoCarb® is compatible with IPM programmes. There are no withholding periods, or re-entry restrictions. However, it is important to observe worker protective clothing guidelines when applying any sprays.
