FLINT

FLINT is a proven, highly effective ‘mesostemic’ contact fungicide providing control of a broad spectrum of diseases, in several important horticultural crops.

Soon after application, FLINT becomes locked to leaf surfaces and waxy plant layers form a reservoir of fungicide, which is gradually released over time. This ensure the active ingredient is readily available when needed.

FLINT is also re-distributed to untreated parts of the plant by strong local vapour movement and translaminar activity, protecting the plant and ensuring crop yield and returns are optimised.
