Amistar® can be used on a range of vegetables, fruit, ornamental plants & trees to control a range of diseases including alternaria, rust, downy mildew & ring spot.
Amistar® contains azoxystrobin, a broad spectrum fungicide from the strobilurin group. It has systemic, translaminar and protectant properties which inhibit fungal respiration. It's mode of action is different from the action of other fungicidal groups, however it should always be used in mixture with fungicides with other modes of action. Amistar® shows good crop safety, disease control and maintenance of green leaf area which results in significant yield benefits. Use Amistar® as a protective treatment or during early stages of disease establishment. A full list of the tolerant crops can be found on the product label.
Certain apple varieties are highly sensitive to Amistar® and as a precaution it should not be applied when there is a risk of spray drift onto neighbouring apple crops. Spray equipment used to apply Amistar® to other crops should not be used to treat apples.
Apply Amistar® under good growing conditions with adequate soil moisture. Avoid poor growing conditions which may give less reliable results.
