Group 3 and 11 fungicides
Mode of Action
Quilt contains two proven fungicides, both of which have systemic properties and each of which has a different mode of action. Quilt fungicide is a mixture of Quadris® (azoxystrobin) and Tilt® (propiconazole) fungicides.
Azoxystrobin is xylem mobile, meaning it uses the plant's own feeding system to move up and out through new growth. It has single-site activity, meaning it attacks fungal pathogens at a specific biological point for quick, effective control.
Propiconazole is a translaminar fungicide, meaning it moves vertically through plant tissue with some lateral movement. A droplet landing on a leaf surface, for example, will move directly downward through to the underside of the leaf. It has multi-site activity, attacking pathogens at many biological points, which is key to reducing the risk of resistance.
Together, these fungicides attack fungal pathogens at every stage of development, from spore germination to mycelial growth to sporulation, which means they work not only to suppress the initial infection, but also to prevent subsequent infection as spores try to spread. This action preserves green leaf area, giving plants an opportunity to continue to photosynthesize and direct energy into quality and yield.
Quilt works both preventatively and curatively to protect crops against yield and quality robbing diseases in cereals, corn and pulses, including soybeans.
