Treatments for seed treatment are widely used in agriculture. They protect seeds from diseases that can affect seedlings and young plants in the early stages of growth. Let's consider the Terrasil Forte dressing agent, its active substance, purpose and principle of action, how to use the drug according to the instructions. How compatible is the product with other pesticides, how to store it and what disinfectants to replace.
Active ingredient and formulation of the disinfectant
The producers of Terrasila Forte - the companies SNAD LLC and Rapsod Plus LLC - produce it in the form of a suspension concentrate in 5-liter canisters. There are two active ingredients - tebuconazole and flutriafol in an amount of 80 g per 1 liter. The disinfectant has a systemic effect, by the nature of the action it is a protective and curative fungicide.
Spectrum and principle of action
The active substances of Terrasila Forte act differently on fungi. Tebuconazole stops the synthesis of ergosterol in pathogen cells, which causes their death. Flutriafol disrupts the synthesis of other sterols, as well as the permeability of the membranes of pathogens, which also leads to a cessation of reproduction and death.
The drug can penetrate into the seed embryos when the seeds swell, while protecting them from fungi and bacteria. The fungicide begins to work on the 2nd day after the seeds are in the soil (if its moisture is sufficient). The effect of the dressing does not end there, as the seedling grows, substances are distributed in it, stimulating the growth and development of roots. "Terrasil Forte" prevents diseases, protects crops from infection for a long time (from germination to the stage of emergence into the tube).
