Technical Name ;Zineb 68% + Hexaconazol 4% WP
It is a unique combination of contact and systemic fungicide. Its contact part is Zineb which is a broad-spectrum fungicide with protective action. It is fungi toxic when exposed to air and is converted to an isothiocyanate, which inactivates the sulphahydral (SH) groups in enzymes of fungi. Sometimes the metals are exchanged between Zineb and enzymes of fungi, thus causing disturbance in fungal enzyme functioning. It acts by blocking the metabolism of pathogenic fungus at the cellular level, at several stages of the Krebs Cycle.
Another partner in this combination is Hexaconazole which is a unique highly systemic triazole fungicide, acting as a protective, curative, and eradicant with strong antisporulant and translaminar action. It is a potent ergosterol biosynthesis inhibitor. Ergosterol, a principal sterol in most fungi is an indispensable component in the membrane structures

Generally, the sprays of Amity should start before the appearance of the disease or at disease initiation. Repeat the applications at 8-12 days interval depending on climatic conditions and disease severity.
