Fludioxonil inhibits a protein kinase involved in cell metabolism. It penetrates the seed to control deep infection. It moves with coleoptiles to control soil borne inoculation.

Difenoconazole is taken up by the seed and translocated within the seedling. It stops the development of fungi by interfering with the biosynthesis of sterols in the cell membrane.
