Fungicide efficacy often depends upon rainfast properties, or the ability of a fungicide to remain in place during and after rain. This presentation discusses major differences between contact fungicides, surfactants, and systemic fungicide properties.

Transcript

  • 1. FUNGICIDE RAINFASTNESS NICOLE WARD GAUTHIER, UK PLANT PATHOLOGY
  • 2. FUNGICIDES & RAIN • Contact fungicides – wash off in rain • Adhesive properties – lightly stick or bind • Locally Systemic absorb • Systemic Activity – enter vascular system Won’t Wash Off Not Rainfast
  • 3. CONTACT FUNGICIDES • Contact Fungicides are not rainfast • Surfactants can aid in adhesion • M-class fungicides are contact fungicides • • • • • • Captan Mancozeb Polyram Sulfur Syllit Ziram
  • 4. ADHESION DEPENDS UPON… • Formulation – wettable powder, granules, etc • Particle size – small particles “stick” better • Fillers – talc, clay, etc • Soluble particles adhere better than larger particles
  • 5. ADHESION ASSISTANCE Surfactants – “surface” spreader stickers • Reduce surface tension and improve spreadability • Alter ionic charge - retention • May encourage permeation • Included in formulation or incorporate • Buffers regulate pH of alkaline water • Reduce weathering and UV degradation • Reduction of active ingredients
  • 6. ADHESION • Surfactants – “surface” spreader stickers • Persistence and retention, up to 1” rainfall • Dodine • Mancozeb
  • 7. REDISTRIBUTION Surfactants prevent redistribution • Surface redistribution and retention (blue arrows) • Vapor movement (purple arrows) • Binds to waxy cuticle (yellow arrows) Paul Vincelli, University of Kentucky.
  • 8. REDISTRIBUTION • Surface redistribution – products solubilize and redistribute under light rain. (blue and purple arrows) • Not rainfast, per se… • Fungicides with redistribution properties: • Copper • Captan • Flint Paul Vincelli, University of Kentucky.
  • 9. TRANSLAMINAR MOVEMENT • Locally systemic – movement from one side of leaf to another (red arrow) • Localized penetration, limited movement, translaminar mobility • Locally systemic fungicides: • • • • • • Iprodione Cabrio Flint Luna series Pristine Sovran Paul Vincelli, University of Kentucky.
  • 10. SYSTEMIC ACTIVITY • Xylem movement – upward from point of absorption • Upwardly systemic fungicides: • • • • • • Topsin M Idoprione Rally Topguard Scala Streptomycin Janna Beckerman, Purdue University.
  • 11. SYSTEMIC ACTIVITY • Fully systemic – upward and downward movement through xylem and phloem • Fully systemic fungicides • Phosphorus acids Nature Chemical Biology Hélène S Robert & Jií Friml
  • 12. FUNGICIDES & RAIN • Contact fungicides – wash off in rain • Adhesive properties – lightly stick or bind • Locally Systemic absorb • Systemic Activity – enter vascular system Won’t Wash Off Not Rainfast

  • 14. WE NEED YOUR HELP Testimonials – • Our funding (results in free services to growers) depends upon impact reports • 1 to 5 short sentences describing how our program (plant pathologist, diagnostic lab, educational program) helped you and/or your orchard • Use numbers whenever possible – acres, gallons, dollars, spray applications
