The new fungicide Curado is already being sold as an alternative in the Brazilian market for the control of foliar diseases for the next season (2018-19). The product has an active ingredient, the compound fluazinam from the chemical group phenylpropanolamine on concentration of 500 grams per liter and concentrated suspension.
According to the maker, Australian company Nufarm, it is a product with high efficiency in the control of white mold (Sclerotinia sclerotiorum). The company highlighted that the agrochemical was registered for crops such as soybeans, kidney beans, potatoes, tomatoes, sugarcane, apples, and sunflowers.
The fungicide and adjuvant manager of Nufarm, agronomist Carulina Oliveira, pointed out that Curado presented a low risk of resistance due to its action contact. “Therefore, it works as an ally of the agricultural business to manage fungi resistance to fungicides available in Brazil,” she highlighted.
The new product of Nufarm, added the executive, acts with effectiveness over other foliar diseases and soil crops. “In terms of white mold, Curado reduces the secondary cycles of infection for impeding the fungus germination of fungus in the soil,” affirmed Oliveira.
According to Nufarm, “When incorporating Curado to the Nufarm portfolio, it expands its fungicide technologies available to the Brazilian farmer and gives a sequence to the implementation of an innovative commercial policy, centered on the widening of market access for the products of the company”. Oliveira highlighted that Curado is the sixth launch of the Australian company in Brazil this year.
