Understanding Folicur

Folicur is a DMI fungicide. Folicur contains tebuconazole, a very effective DMI fungicide launched over 20 years ago but one that has gained a reputation as a very effective wheat ear fungicide.

Folicur has established a very useful position in wheat fungicide programmes as a late season fungicide for the control of ear diseases and for late season control of leaf rust.

With the long growing season of wheat crops in New Zealand, resulting from the long day length and widespread use of irrigation, it is very important to keep the crop green, healthy and growing for as long as possible. With a short withholding period Folicur is ideally suited to do this.
