Activity
Fungicide
Hymexazol is applied as a soil drench, a seed dressing or by soil incorporation. It is translocated acropetally in crops. It is believed that the compound has a synergistic effect on endogenous auxin, thereby promoting root growth. This in turn leads to increased cold resistance, reduced flooding damage and a reduction in the phytotoxic effects of some herbicides. The product can be used as a seed treatment to control soil-borne diseases such as Aphanomyces cochlioides, for which no alternatives are available, in sugar beet.

Hymexazol is non-phytotoxic to target crops.
