Opera® Fungicide By BASF - Australia Packshot



Broad-spectrum disease protection for cereal crops

Mode of action: Group 3 11 fungicide
Key ingredient(s): 85 g/L Pyraclostrobin 62.5 g/L Epoxiconazole
Formulation: Suspo-emulsion (SE)

A dual-active DMI and QoI fungicide that controls all the major diseases of winter cereals, Opera is especially effective against various forms of blotch. If the net or spot form of net blotch is a key disease threat in your barley, foliar application can provide outstanding protection right through to harvest. Opera will also control powdery mildew in barley with developed resistance to first-generation triazoles; certain forms of septoria in wheat, oats and oaten hay; various forms of rust in wheat and barley; powdery mildew in wheat and leaf scald in barley.

Key benefits

  • Triple action control with preventative, curative and eradicant activity
  • Extended residual protection increases yield potential
  • Especially effective on both forms of net blotch & septoria nodorum blotch
  • Controls powdery mildew in barley with resistance to older triazoles

How it works

Opera® is a broad-spectrum contact and systemic fungicide. It is taken up via the stem and leaves and is moved upwards and outwards to provide protection to new growth. Thorough coverage of the crop is necessary for best results.

Opera is a suspo-emulsion formulation. The addition of a non-ionic surfactant at recommended rates may assist in providing better coverage of sprayed surfaces.

Check the crop regularly for any symptoms of disease infection. Apply as soon as disease is present as set out in the Directions for Use in the product label.
