Recently, Fongarid, active constituent Furalaxyl, was removed from the market by its manufacturer, Syngenta. This left a vacuum in the hydroponics retail sector where Fongarid has become a mainstay as the last line of defence for root disease. Enter Rot Stop. Rot Stop and Fongarid are the same class of fungicide.
* Studies have shown the Metalxyl-M, the active in Rot Stop, is more efficient/active than Furalaxyl, the active in Fongarid, where combating pythium and phytopthora is concerned.
* Rot Stop comes in liquid form making it more suitable/culturally appropriate for hydroponic retail consumers than Fongarid and other powder products (i.e. no airborne particles when mixing/safer to use)
* RRP of $38.00 and 10ml/L usage rate to create 100 litres of drench makes Rot Stop more cost effective than Fongarid
* Systemic action – offers protection from root disease for up to 3 weeks after application
