Fungicide Chorus: description, instructions for use
The condition of the fruit directly depends on the proper care of the beds, and protection from diseases or fungi is far from last. In recent years, experienced summer residents increasingly choose fungicide Horus for its versatility. The drug has almost no analogues due to the specific principle of action. And we have already figured out everything in more detail and prepared instructions for use!
The principle of fungicide
The active component of Horus is cyprodinil, which is 3/4 of the total volume of the drug. It is a systemic fungicide for the treatment of fruit crops and grapes. It is used for prophylaxis, but copes well with neglected scab.
The effectiveness of Horus is maintained even at a temperature of +3 and up to +25 degrees, so at the beginning of the season he has practically no equal. After two hours, the rain will not be able to wash it off the leaves, so you do not need to repeat the spraying due to bad weather.
Cyprodinil perfectly inhibits the development of microorganisms resistant to other fungicides. After processing, a thin protective film forms, which prevents the spread of the disease. It does not react with pesticides and does not cause resistance and addiction to pathogens.
Horus, in comparison with other fungicides, has a very high eradicating ability. It quickly penetrates the tissues of the plant and begins to act within the first hour. If you use fungicide in the initial stages of infection, it will cope in 2-3 days. Systemic action lasts 7-10 days.
Chorus is needed to treat a wide range of fruit tree diseases. These are putrefactive and fungal processes of apple trees, pears, cherries, peaches, apricots and other crops. Chorus is used for scab, powdery mildew, fruit rot, alternariosis, moniliosis, coccomycosis and kleasterosporiosis.
The drug disrupts the natural processes in the cells of harmful microorganisms, while they only penetrate the plant or are already developing on it. The action of Horus on the fungus after winter is unique and has no analogues of the same effectiveness.
Chorus fungicide is available in the form of water-soluble granules in packages of 1 g to 1 kg. It is very economically consumed, effective at a low temperature of + 3 degrees and non-toxic to plants. The drug is compatible with pesticides, practically does not penetrate into the soil and does not leak into groundwater.
When processed at the beginning of the season, Chorus penetrates the structure of young leaves in just two hours. When processed before harvesting, the protective film of fungicide prevents the appearance of rot and halves the loss of crop due to it. In the future, such fruits are much better and longer stored.
Most fungicides are very toxic to the environment. Horus is not dangerous and does not threaten bees or other useful garden insects. It is harmless to the health of households, birds, pets, if the dosages and protective measures are followed.
There are only two significant flaws in Horus. It is suitable only for young leaves, so it is almost not used on adult plants, trees that are too infected or on trees with thick, hard leaves. And at high temperatures from +25 degrees, the drug becomes ineffective.
The dosage and the interval between the treatment of trees with Horus depends on the specific disease. It is always written on the package, so be sure to read it before use.
For the treatment of apple and pear from scab, powdery mildew, alternariosis and moniliosis, dissolve 2 g of fungicide in 10 l of water. This is enough for about 100 squares of the garden. The first spraying is necessary at the stage of formation of "green cones", and the next - when the trees finish blooming.
From a monilial burn, dilute 2-3.5 g of fungicide. Kostochkovy need two sprayings: before flowering and after 7-10 days. For the treatment of coccomycosis, clusterosporiosis or curly leaves, take 3.5 g of Chorus per 10 liters of water. Spray the trees as soon as you notice the first signs of the disease, and repeat the procedure after 7-10 days.
Prevention of fruit rot by Horus
For preventive purposes, fruit crops are sprayed with Horus in early spring, as soon as the temperature settles above +3 degrees. It is necessary to evenly spray all the trees so that a solution with a dosage of 3.5 g per 10 l covers the leaves with a protective film. The second preventive treatment is carried out two weeks before the harvest ripens.
When working with fungicide Horus, wear gloves, a mask, a respirator and work clothing. To mix the preparation, use directly the sprayer tank or a separate container that is not needed for irrigation or domestic needs. The solution must be prepared and used immediately, in literally two to three hours.
Fill the tank with water by about a third, add the desired dose of fungicide and mix thoroughly. The substance must completely dissolve so that the powder and granules do not float in water. Then share the remaining volume of water and mix again. While spraying, the tank must be shaken periodically so that the substance does not precipitate.
