HALT is absorbed by the assimilating parts of the plant, the majority within one hour. It is transported acropetally (upwards) in the xylem. This systemic translocation contributes to good distribution of the active ingredient within the plant tissue and prevents it from being washed off.

HALT acts on the fungal pathogen inside the plant at the stage of first haustoria formation. It stops the development of fungi by interfering with the biosynthesis of sterols in cell membranes and more precisely belongs to the group of DMI - fungicides (demethylation inhibitors)

HALT has curative and eradicative activity gives the product high flexibility. The vapour phase contributes to optimum distribution of the active ingredient in the leaf mass. Although the biological mode of action of propiconazole permits protective, curative or eradicative use, best results are achieved if the product is applied when the disease is active but still in the early stage of development.

Active ingredient Propiconazole
Formulation 25% EC
Compatibility Compatible with most fungicides.
Shelf - life Two years under normal storage conditions.
Available Packing 100ml, 250ml, 500ml and 1ltr.

Mode of Action

Halt is a systemic specialty fungicide. It is rapidly absorbed by the Leaves or stems and translocated upward through the xylem. It is a potent ergo sterol biosynthesis inhibitor. Ergo sterol, a principal sterol in most fungi is an indispensable component in the membrane structures.
