- Propiconazole is a systemic foliar
fungicide with a broad range of activity.
- Propiconazole was first registered in
1981 by Ciba Geigy for use on grass grown for seed.
- Propiconazole is in the triazole
class of fungicides. Commercially, propiconazole is available as
an emulsifiable concentrate, flowable concentrate, ready-to-use liquid,
liquid soluble concentrate, wettable powder, and dust (EPA).
- Propiconazole is low in toxicity to
honeybees and other non-target arthropods, and presents a low risk to
these organisms in the field.
- Propiconazole is used on grasses
grown for seed, mushrooms, corn, wild rice, peanuts, almonds,
sorghum, oats, pecans, apricots, peaches, nectarines, plums and
- Propiconazole controls many
diseases caused by leafspots, rust, and powdery mildews.
- Propiconazole is also used to
protect ornamental plants and as a preventative ingredient on
industrial products. Propiconazole may be sold under names including
Tilt, Alamo, Banner, Orbit, and Quilt (EPA).
- Propiconazole is used to protect
ornamental plants and turf, including golf courses and sod farms. It
may be used as a preservative to wood, adhesives, paints, coatings,
leather, paper, textiles, and other industrial products (EPA).
- Propiconazole is used in material
preservation and wood preservation products. As a materials
preservative, propiconazole is used in items such as metalworking
fluids, adhesives, caulks, coatings, stains, paints, inks, paper,
textiles, canvas, cordage, leather, and leather finishing pastes,
fat liquors, or finishes.
- Propiconazole is also formulated
for use in mushroom houses, to protect timber trays and benches, and
for use on wood in cooling towers.
- The triazoles propiconazole,
tebuconazole, and fenbuconazole have become industry
standardsfor chemical management of brown rot of peach and
ofmummy berry disease of blueberry in the Southeastern United
- Today, propiconazole is
registered for use on numerous food and feed crops; 55 permanent
and 15 temporary tolerances have been established.
- Propiconazole has a strong
affinity for soil and degradation occurs rapidly on soil and in
water. Therefore, propiconazole and its metabolites have a low
risk of leaching to groundwater or of run-off into streams and
other water bodies.
- A screening-level estimate of
the usage of propiconazole indicates that approximately 345,000
pounds of propiconazole active ingredient (ai) were used
annually from 1999 to 2004.
- Propiconazole application
rates vary by use. For most agricultural uses, propiconazole is
applied at less than 1 pound active ingredient per acre (lb ai/A)
for crops, but it may be applied at up to 1.8 lb ai/A for
turf and ornamentals.
