This fungicide contains 120 g/L AZOXYSTROBIN AND 200 g/L TEBUCONAZOLE as its active ingredients and is able to be used for the following fungus pests.

  • Anthracnose (Colletotrichum spp.),
  • Leaf mould (Cladosporium spp.),
  • Myrtle rust (Uredo rangelii),
  • Powdery mildew (Erysiphe spp., Leveillula spp., Microsphaera spp., Oidium spp., Sphaerotheca spp.),
  • Rhizoctonia (Rhizoctonia spp) and
  • Sclerotinia (Sclerotinia spp.)

A copy of the permit is attached along with an updated list of the industries current minor use permits.

The industry minor use permit program is facilitated as part of the levy funded project NY15004 National Nursery Industry Biosecurity. Having access to a variety of chemical pest control options builds a level of resilience in the industry and facilitates the prudent use of chemicals through rotations and limits the reliance on one or two major chemicals. The program also considers the development of emergency permits pre-empting significant biosecurity incursions and ensuring that options are available in the event of an incursion.
