Belanty brings a new dimension to Group 3 fungicide chemistry, using molecular flexibility to achieve very robust disease control. New DMI chemistry with much stronger cellular binding than other DMIs. Belanty delivers rapid and lasting protection, and a favourable residue profile providing a flexible application window.
- Class-leading, flexible control of powdery mildew in grapes and black spot in apples
- A uniquely adaptable molecule – the first of its type – within Group 3 (DMI) fungicides
- Better residue profile than alternative triazoles, with approved MRL’s for EU export
- Molecular flexibility and exceptionally strong cellular binding deliver robust efficacy at a low
volume of active ingredient
- Rapid uptake and lasting residual protection
Although Belanty is classified as a Group 3 fungicide, its hybrid ‘isopropanol-azole’ molecule is the fi rst of its type and unique among demethylation inhibitors (DMIs).
The triazole ‘head’ of the molecule sits on the ‘neck’ of a slim isopropanol unit. That isopropanol component folds into a hook shape as the molecule switches from its unbound conformation to the bound one and docks with its target enzyme.
The formulation of the Belanty molecule promotes rapid uptake and enables it to bind much more strongly than other triazoles to the target enzyme: C 14-demethylase.
