About Alto


ALTO® is a fungicide with systemic and curative properties for the control of leaf rust in coffee.

FACT SHEET


Fungicide with systemic and curative properties for the control of leaf rust in coffee.

Active ingredient

100g/l Cyproconazole

Formulation

SL (Slurry Liquid)

WHO Classification

III

Rate of application

Apply at a recommended rate of 20ml/20L of water or 200ml per Acre or 500ml per Ha

Mode of action

Cyproconazole is absorbed by the assimilating parts of the plant, the majority within one hour, and transported acroptally (upwards) in the xylem. This systemic translocation contributes to good distribution of the active ingredient within the plant tissues and prevents it being washed off.

Targets
It stops the development of fungi by interfering with the biosynthesis of sterols in the cell membranes.

Main crops
Coffee
