is a member of the oxathiin class of systemic fungicides.
Oxycarboxin is an off-white, crystalline compound
with a melting point of 127.5-130-C.
Some of the other names are
Carboxin sulfone , DCMOO , Oxicarboxina , Oxikarboxin ,
Oxycarboxin , Oxycarboxin , Oxycarboxin (DCMCD) , oxycarboxine ,
Used for the control of rust diseases on ornamentals,
cereals and nursery trees.It
also used to control fairy rings on turf.
It is the first systemic fungicides were released to
Australian horticulture in the early 1970s.
Also known as
Products such as Benlate (benomyl) and Plantvax
(oxycarboxin) offered new standards of control for diseases such as
grey mould, powdery mildews and rusts.
The mode of action of these systemic fungicides
differed from that of older protectant fungicides.
They had selective toxic activity effective against
certain life processes in the fungi.
At normal rates of application they had no
deleterious effect on plant tissue.
This type of activity has been called `systemic', `eradicant'
or `kick-back' since it stops the progress of established
Oxycarboxin is believed not to
persist on plants post-application; there is little likelihood of
sustained potential exposure.
Very limited residential
exposure to oxycarboxin may be possible if treated ornamentals are
obtained from an enclosed commercial structure such as a nursery or
greenhouse and then brought back to a residence.
Oxycarboxin was first
registered as an active ingredient in the United States (US) in 1971
for control of rust on carnations.
