Polyram® DF Fungicide By BASF - Australia Packshot

Polyram® DF


Creating more attractive fruit and vegetables

Mode of action: Group M3 fungicide
Active ingredient(s): 700 g/kg Metiram
Formulation: Water dispersible granules

There’s no other fungicide quite like Polyram® DF, formulated as hollow granules with 14% zinc content. The granules dissolve quickly and are easy to mix. The zinc-based formulation makes it much softer on the crop and provides an added nutrient benefit. The result is a better finish, especially noticeable in smooth-skinned fruit crops like apples and table grapes, and leafy vegetable crops. Polyram produces more saleable potatoes, lettuces, onions, brassicas, cucurbits, stone and pome fruit and more.


Key benefits

  • Unique formulation
  • Increase crop yield
  • Group M3 fungicide

How it works

Polyram® DF is a non-systemic, preventative fungicide that forms a protective barrier on the plant’s surface.

Polyram’s active ingredient, metiram, kills the fungus after it has germinated from the spore and before it penetrates the plant. Within the fungal cell, amino acid production is interrupted and the cell stops growing.

Once the fungus has established itself within the plant, Polyram – like many other protectant fungicides – is ineffective.

Polyram is also a softer and safer option for use in selected Integrated Pest Management (IPM) programs. It has a strong beneficial insect safety profile and is compatible with most insecticides and other fungicides. However, to be sure of compatibility with any particular product, check with your local dealer first.
