Based on the active ingredient thiram, Thianosan DG replaces the formerly available Triptam in the Certis range, and can be used on a variety of crops and situations, including protected and outdoor grown strawberries, from white bud to first flower open growth stages.

Thianosan is also available to treat apples and pears up to a maximum of four applications at 0.3kg/100L at bud burst, as part of an early scab or storage rot programme.

For ornamental plant growers it is available for the control of various fungi, from botrytis in freesias to rust in carnations and chrysanthemums and tulip fire in tulips.

The label rate for use on ornamentals is 4kg/1000 litres of water, and the advised timing is when the target fungus is first seen, or the plant is at high risk.
