Safety Data Sheet Sercadis® SDS
Delan® SDS

Fluxapyroxad is a fungicide, active at low dose rates across a broad spectrum of plant diseases. It belongs to the carboxamide class of chemicals and the mode of action is through inhibition of succinate dehydrogenase, in complex II of the mitochondrial respiratory chain, resulting in the inhibition of spore germination, germ tube development and mycelial growth within the target fungus species. As such, fluxapyroxad falls within the SDHI group of fungicides and FRAC Group Code 7. Fluxapyroxad rapidly penetrates plant tissue after application and exhibits translaminar and acropetal systemic movement to provide long lasting residual control.

Selectivity of the mixture of Sercadis® with Delan® (Reg. No.L5440) has been demonstrated across a range of apple and pear varieties. In addition, the mixture has been demonstrated as compatible with the following products: Hunter® 24 (Reg. No. L8307) and Regalis® (Reg. No. L7549) [the latter in combination with Dash® HC (Reg. No. L7469)].

Information on crops and pests

Pests Recommended rate Time of application Number of application
Blackspot (Apples) 12,5 ml + 30ml Delan®/100 l Water Apply Sercadis® as part of a complete spray programme. Schedule the inclusion of Sercadis® in the spray programme, only as preventive applications, during the following growth stages: Commence with applications, at pink ball to early fruiting stage and applyat five – ten day intervals, up to 75 % petal fall. From 75 % petal fall, spray intervals can be extended to a maximum of 10 days. If weather conditions during this time favour the development of the disease, then revert back to seven day intervals. Sercadis® has flexible positioning in the spray programme; it is however advisable to position Sercadis® applications between 25 % flowering and early fruit set to achieve optimum control.FRAC Guidelines always support sound resistance management practices. The respective Guidelines have been incorporated into the directions of this label. Fundamental to these guidelines is the following:• Always apply Sercadis® in combination with Delan® (FRAC Group Code M9), the recommended mixing partner, at the rates and intervals as specified.• Do not apply more than two consecutive applications of Sercadis® or any other FRAC Group Code 7 fungicide per season.• Do not exceed three Sercadis® applications per season.• Always apply preventively. 3
