Star Jet is mixture of two fungicides- Mancozeb and Cymoxanil. The partner Mancozeb acts by its contact action. The mancozeb is fungitoxic when exposed to air. It is converted to an isothiocyanate, which inactivates the Sulphahydral (SH) groups in enzymes of fungi. Sometimes the metals are exchanged between mancozeb and enzymes of fungi, thus causing disturbance in fungal enzyme functioning. Other partner Cymoxanil has contact and locally systemic activity. It inhibits Sporulation in fungi
Specialty dual action fungicide i.e. contact and locally systemic, which controls diseases by its protective as well as early curative action. Best for controlling resistant fungal population. Good kick-back action – Controls fungi even after 2 days of infection. Specialty fungicide to control diseases caused by oomycetes fungi. (Downy mildew, late blight, etc.) rapid uptake and trans-location in plant. Long duration disease control. Due to various actions on spores, viz – Inhibits spore germination, reduce spore viability and inhibits spores production, controls spread of disease.
For best management of the disease it is wise to spray at the initiation of the disease symptoms/ at probable time of disease occurrence. Preventive application of Starjet early in season helps in preventing disease outbreak late in season. Use the product as per the recommendations of local agricultural department.
