Prothioconazole is very popular according to a recent survey, receiving 13 votes from India, the United States, Mexico, Brazil, Australia and Zimbabwe.

What is Prothioconazole?

Prothioconazole has a good control effect on almost all wheat and barley diseases, such as Fusarium Head Blight, powdery mildew, sheath blight, leaf spot, rust, and basic rot. Not only can it efficiently control Fusarium Head Blight, but it can also effectively inhibit toxins produced by the disease.
