If you have a well maintained lawn that you put a lot of sweat and investment in, it can be absolutely infuriating to walk out and see that your foliage is getting spots and accumulating mildew. “Where is this coming from?”, you may ask.  It would appear your lawn as a fungus or disease that is spreading and you will have to ask fast to get it under control. One of the best ways you can do that is by utilizing a fungicide such as tebuconazole.

Here on this page we will give you a brief overview of tebuconazole, its content, mode of action and why it is a solid option for eliminating fungi and disease. Here you can also shop the fungicide products we have in stock are based with tebuconazole. 

What is Tebuconazole?

Tebuconazole (Chemical name: C16H22ClN3O) is a systemic fungicide from the triazole class of chemicals. This triazole fungicide is also known as a DMI (demethylation inhibiting fungicide). Tebuconazole is a systemic fungicide that is effective for a variety of landscaping and farming activities. It is especially popular for combating fungi that can harm grapes, cherries, almonds, cereals, and rapeseed or canola.

It has been used across the U.S. and Europe since the early 1990s. Bayer Crop Sciences is a major producer of this fungicide. In its original form, tebuconazole is acolorless to light brown powder. Some of the common fungal and disease problems it is known to treat are rust, sheath blight, leaf spot, anthracnose, and ikka among others. 

How Does Tebuconazole Work?

Because tebuconazole is a DMI, this means that its mode of action is stopping fungal growth by demethylation of C-14( removal of a methyl group (CH3) from a molecule) during ergosterol biosynthesis that leads to an accumulation of C-14 methyl sterols. 

In other words, tebuconazole affects the cell walls of the fungi first by inhibiting the spore germination, then by inhibiting the growth of the fungus. Products using tebuconazole interfere with the synthesis of ergosterol in plant life, ergosterol being a molecule essential to the formation of fungus. As a result, the formation of fungus is slowed and eventually stopped.

Aside from agricultural use, it can also be used on residential and commercial lawns and has been used to destroy fungal and disease growth on golf courses.

 

Is Tebuconazole Safe To Use?

Tebuconazole is classified by the EPA as slightly hazardous, and of moderate acute toxicity. Tebuconazole has been listed as a possible carcinogen. However as long as the proper safety precautions are made and the product is used as instructed on the label, tebuconazole should be perfectly safe to use.

 

Eye contact with tebuconazole may cause moderate irritation. When applying tebuconazole we recommend carefully following the instructions found on the safety label and wearing the proper protective equipment (long sleeve clothing, gloves, breathing mask and protective eyewear).
