Mode of Action

Thiabendazole is a systemic fungicide with protective and curative activity. It inhibits mitosis by binding to tubuline and thus severely impairs fungal growth and development. Thiabendazole forms a protective deposit on the treated surface of leaves, flowers, fruits and tubers.  It is also effective against a wide range of plant pathogenic fungi that may be present in the soil or harvested crops.

Fungi inhibited by Thiabendazole include: botrytis cinerea, Fusarium oxysporum, Rhizoctoria spp, and several other fungi.
