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.
Soluble concentrate (SC)
5 litre, 1litres
Mode of action
Azoxystrobin possesses a novel biochemical mode of action. Its fungicidal activity results from the inhibition of mitochondrial respiration in fungi.
Rates of application
Apply at 0.75 ltrs/ha
Large number important diseases including septoria, fusarium and rust.
Wheat and barley
- Stops disease even before it starts
- Delays onset senescence hence prolonging Green leaf Area (GLA)
- Treated crop able to cope better with water stress (water use efficiency)
- Treated crop has improved ability to use nitrogen efficiently and assimilate it into proteins.
