Avatar is a reasonably new, systemic multi-site fungicide which helps prevent against diseases including damping off and root rot in ornamental crops and also contributes to the prevention of other oomycete diseases such as phytophthora. It works by preventing mycelia growth, spore production and germination. It will also stimulate a plants natural defences improving resistance management.
A systemic multi-site fungicide supplied in an easy to use liquid for the control of ‘damping-off’ caused by Pythium spp for lettuce, tomato, melon and cucumber seedlings during propagation under protection. Also, for protected crops of tomato, melon and cucumber against Pythium when applied through drip irrigation.
Avatar can be applied as a drench to control root diseases. This can be used for seed sown crops at both the seed sowing stage and 24 hours prior to pricking out. It should also be used as a drench for plug grown plants both before potting and 10-14 days after potting. To control downy mildew, Avatar can be applied as a foliar spray. This can be done by tractor mounted or trailed sprayers or by knapsack. As the plant matures, higher water voulumes are required.
