Talendo® Fungicide

Talendo® – Powdery Mildew Control

DuPont™ Talendo® is an emulsifiable concentrate, systemic, preventive and residual fungicide for the control of powdery mildew in grapes and powdery mildew in Baby marrows (Courgette and Zucchini).

Powdery mildew can be found in nearly all agricultural crops and stands a wide range of climatic conditions (5-30°C, relative humidity 40%-100%). It develops and spreads extremely fast throughout vineyards. The time from infection to sporulation can be very short (5-6 days at 23-30°C). Powdery mildew is a devastating disease with high economic impact - it can heavily affect both the yield and quality of grapes. Under certain conditions 100% of the yield can be lost.

Uncinula necator, the causal agent of grape powdery mildew, can be controlled with fungicides. However it involves up to 7 fungicide applications per season. The fungus tends to develop resistance against fungicides. Therefore a combination of agronomic practices and the use of fungicides with different modes of action such as DuPont™ Talendo® are key factors for successful protection of the grapes:

  • Cultural (pruning, limitation of manuring)
  • Genetic (resistant varieties)
  • Chemical fungicides with varying modes of action (preventive, curative, eradicating)

Talendo®, the fungicide from DuPont, has an important place in disease management and is an asset to control powdery mildew in vineyards and in as well Baby marrows (Courgette and Zucchini).
