Captafol

Powerful and effective, captafol can control most fungal diseases that commonly attack plants except the powdery mildews. The substance has gained most use as a combatant of fruit diseases, and is often applied to apples, cranberries, pineapples, strawberries, watermelons, and a wide array of other crops. Captafol has also been utilized as a seed protectant for peanuts, cotton, and rice, and as a fungicide in the timber industry, helping to reduce losses from wood rot fungi. Available in a wide variety of formulations, captafol is compatible with most other types of plant protectants, except those that are strongly alkaline.
