We have now entered the post patent phase of the valuable prothioconazole cereal and oilseed rape fungicide. As such, cereal growers can make significant savings this season.

Prothioconazole has become the most widely used triazole active ingredient in Ireland due to its reliability in controlling a wide range of crop diseases. The brands available are Protendo and Pecari and both are supplied in one and five litre packs. Both products come from the well regarded and fast growing international agrichemical company Globachem, who also supply well known brands such as Diflanil, Spirodor, Tebucur, Moxa and Globaztar into the Irish crop protection market.

Protendo and Pecari both contain 250 grams per litre of prothioconazole. Both products are cleared for use on winter and spring wheat, barley and oats as well as on oilseed rape crops, rye and triticale. The products can be tank mixed with a wide range of fungicide partners to give a broader range of disease control and to minimize disease resistance development. Both products move in a translaminar and acropetal manner within the crop thus helping to give long term disease control.

Protendo and Pecari are available from usual agrichemical suppliers.
In Ireland, these products are distributed by DHM Agrochemicals.
