Hexaconazole - Farmers' Companion

Perhaps people are too familiar with the Hexaconazole 5SC product line, a broad-spectrum fungicide that specifically treats many rice diseases such as rice blast, grain blemish, premature yellowing of leaves, etc. Let’s join King Elong to learn about the active ingredient Hexaconazole!

Structure of Hexaconazole: It is a fungicide of the Triazole group, with chemical formula C14H17CL2N3O.

Mechanism of action

  • Hexaconazole's mechanism of action is to inhibit the demethylation of steroids, leading to the inhibition of ergosterol biosynthesis (a substance that makes up fungal cell membranes), stopping the growth of germ tubes and fungal hyphae, preventing the forming attachments and suckers, and inhibiting spore germination. Diseased fungi will be isolated and stop growing because they cannot form new cells.
  • The active ingredient Hexaconazole is quickly absorbed by plant tissue, translocates, and circulates strongly, so it controls fungal diseases quickly, effectively, and for a long time by both preventing and treating diseases.
  • It is an internal fungicide that penetrates quickly into plants so it is less susceptible to leaching by rain.
  • The drug can prevent many diseases in many different types of plants. It increases resistance and helps plants grow quickly.

Application of Hexaconazole in agriculture

  • With its internal circulatory effect and broad spectrum of action, Hexaconazole is widely used in the prevention and treatment of many diseases such as blast, rust, anthracnose, and ring spots on many crops such as rice, vegetables, fruit trees, and industrial crops.
  • Hexaconazole is particularly effective against Ascomycetes and Basidiomycetes fungi, which are the causative agents of leaf spot and fruit rot.
  • Hexaconazole is used when the pathogen has just appeared.

Effective when combined with other lines of pesticides: easily combined with other pesticides, but need to be checked carefully when combined with oil emulsion pesticides.

Toxicity and alkalinity of the active ingredient Hexaconazole

Most pesticides are acidic, including those containing the compound Hexaconazole. Therefore, you should not mix Hexaconazole with alkaline compounds when using it.

In addition, using the active ingredient Hexaconazole excessively, without strictly controlling the dosage and frequency of use, will be dangerous because it creates large amounts of pesticide residue. This residue of the active ingredient Hexaconazole can cause dangerous effects on plants, animals, and humans. Therefore, it is necessary to follow specific and careful instructions for use to ensure safety for the environment and human health.

Currently, in the market, Hexaconazole 5SC holds a large market share; in addition, this active ingredient has increasingly become a familiar product to farmers because of its effectiveness and reasonable price.
