Sprint Fungicide is a broad-spectrum contact and systemic fungicide that is specially formulated for the control of seed and early soil-borne diseases of crops. It is a mixture of two active ingredients, Mancozeb and Carbendazim, which have different modes of action and work synergistically to provide effective control of a wide range of fungal diseases.
Mancozeb is a contact fungicide that remains on the seed surface and forms a protective layer that prevents fungal infection. It is also a multisite fungicide, which means that it can inhibit multiple enzymes in the fungus, making it more difficult for the fungus to develop resistance.
Carbendazim is a systemic fungicide that is absorbed by the plant and translocated throughout the tissues. It acts by disrupting the spindle formation during cell division in the fungus, which ultimately kills the fungus.
Sprint Fungicide is recommended for the control of the following diseases:
- Groundnut: Collar rot, dry root rot, tikka leaf spot
- Potato: Late blight, black scurf
- Paddy: Brown spot, blast, sheath blight
- Wheat: Loose smut
- Black gram: Root rot, collar rot
- Bengal gram: Dry root rot, collar rot
- Soybean: Root rot, collar rot
- Onion: Damping off
- Maize: Seed rot, seedling blight
The recommended dosage of Sprint Fungicide varies depending on the crop and the disease being controlled. The following are some general guidelines:
- For seed treatment, the recommended dosage is 30-35 grams per 10 kilograms of seed.
- For foliar application, the recommended dosage is 0.1-0.2 liters per hectare.
It is important to read the label carefully and follow the instructions for use before applying Sprint Fungicide.
