Inatreq™ active is the first member of a new class of cereal fungicides, the picolinamides.
Inatreq offers a new solution for control of Septoria tritici where resistance to other chemistries (e.g. strobilurins, SDHI and triazoles) is a concern.
Inatreq is best used as a protectant treatment or in the earliest stages of disease development.
The unique target site of Inatreq™ active will be an innovative and effective tool in managing resistance when growers' choices are limited. Target site differs from all other current Septoria actives in the cereal market.
Inatreq™ forms a tenacious deposit on the plant surface. It penetrates into the leaves in small but biologically active quantities. Once in the plant tissue, Inatreq is converted back to the natural product from which it is derived.
Based upon field trials, the following diseases will be controlled effectively by Inatreq at anticipated label use rates.
Laboratory tests show no unreasonable adverse effects from Inatreq™ active:
Testing of Inatreq also indicates that the active ingredient exhibits very low acute toxicity to terrestrial species: mammals, birds, honeybees and earthworms.
