New Mode of Action

DuPont™ Zorvec™ disease control Mode of Action

Zorvec Agrow Award Winner

DuPont™ Zorvec™ disease control is the first member of a novel class of fungicides to control diseases caused by oomycete pathogens.

Zorvec™ affects a novel target site with a completely new biochemical mode of action and has no cross-resistance with existing fungicides. It produces multiple effects on the pathogen’s life cycle for better efficacy, efficiency and length of control.

Disease and Crop Spectrum of Zorvec

Improved effectiveness, favourable environmental profile

Zorvec™ features a favourable environmental profile, being effective on target organisms at very low use rates and having very low toxicity to non-target organisms. Mammalian oral, neurological, developmental and dermal toxicity is low, as is avian and bee toxicity. When assessed on these and other criteria, Zorvec™ represents a highly effective oomycete disease control technology.
