Italy has granted the use extension for Bayer CropScience ’s strobilurin fungicide, Flint (trifloxystrobin) for the control of Brusone (Pyricularia grisea
) and of Herpetosporiosis (Bipolaris oryzae
) on rice cultivation.
Flint is a powerful strobilurin fungicide that goes beyond outstanding disease control, offering enhanced value for growers thanks to several unique properties. The active ingredient forms a powerful barrier against infection and provides continued release into the leaf tissue. It also moves through leaf tissue with translaminar movement to protect both sides of the leaf.
Flint provides complete protection within hard-to-penetrate plant canopies. The fungicide stops both early and developing fungal diseases by preventing initial infection as well as secondary spread of diseases.
