Mode of Action
Carbendazim is a widely used, broad-spectrum systemic benzimidazole fungicide and a metabolite of benomyl, acting by inhibiting the development of fungi probably by interfering with spindle formation at mitosis (cell division).
Apply when weather conditions favor disease development or at onset of disease at 7 – 14 days interval.
This fungicide is compatible with commonly used pesticides and foliar fertilizers and non-phytotoxic when used as recommended. However, a physical compatibility test is recommended before mixing commercial quantities or spraying a large area.
Repeated use of this fungicide alone over an extended period of time may lead to development of resistant fungal strains. This fungicide should be used in alternation with other fungicides which have a different mode of action.
