AMISTAR is a broad-spectrum fungicide ideally suited for use in IPM programs
Amistar is a strobilurin fungicide based on naturally occurring substances found in certain species of wild mushrooms. The active ingredient in Amistar, azoxystrobin, controls a very wide spectrum of disease in wheat and barley. AMISTAR not only controls the key late-season flag leaf and ear diseases that erode yield and quality, but also promotes a range of beneficial physiological and greening effects, so helping the crop towards its full genetic potential.
Active Ingredients 250g/l Azoxystrobin
Formulations Soluble concentrate (SC)
