SAAF Fungicide: Mode of Action

  • Fungicides can work in different ways but SAAF Fungicide acts by killing fungal cell membranes and interrupting energy production within fungal cells.
  • SAAF Fungicides are biocidal chemical compounds used to kill parasitic fungi and their spores. They are systemic and contact fungicides. This means that the fungicides protect only the part of the plant where the spray is deposited or applied.
  • As a systemic fungicide, SAAF is taken up by the plant and is then translocated within the plant system. This will protect the plant from the attack of pathogenic fungi or controlling an already established infection.
  • Elements used for SAAF are mainly copper and sulfur.

 

How to prevent fungal disease/attack in the first place

  • Provide good air circulation around plants by properly spacing them apart.
  • The water is around the base of plants, instead of on the leaves.
  • Rake and remove fallen leaves of infected plants.
  • Apply a fresh layer of mulch to garden beds at the beginning of the growing season.
