Serata® Fungicide

The New Mode of Action for Pythium Diseases

The new go - to Pythium control product has arrived! Serata® fungicide is powered by the unique active ingredient, picarbutrazox, which is also its own unique mode of action.

Picarbutrazox is a new compound from a new class of chemistry, the tetrazolyloximes. It is theorized that picarbutrazox works by effecting the biosynthesis of phospholipids, which disrupts the normal function of the pathogen's cellular membrane.
