Insignia®

Insignia® is a strobilurin-based local penetrant fungicide available in a water dispersible granule formulation. Authorised for use on managed amenity turf, Insignia® contains, 200 g/l (20%) pyraclostrobin providing both protective and curative action. Insignia® delivers additional benefits to the grass plant over and above direct disease control.

Benefits

  • It will prime the turf immune system before a stress event
  • It will help grass plants regulate beneficial responses during a stress event

In addition to directly controlling fungal pathogens, Insignia® helps plants to:

  • Resist disease attacks
  • Withstand abiotic stress (e.g., heat and drought)
  • Grow more efficiently

Why Insignia?

As a fungicide, the pyraclostrobin within Insignia® severely inhibits mitochondrial respiration inside the cells of pathogenic fungi. This prevents the breakdown of carbon that is required for fungi to produce the energy they need to function. In addition to the fungicidal properties, pyraclostrobin actively works beneficially within the grass plant, whereby a minor inhibition of mitochondrial respiration triggers a cascade of positive events which lead to plant health benefits. These benefits are an intrinsic aspect of the way in which pyraclostrobin and Insignia® positively impact the reorganisation of metabolic and physiological plant processes.

Insigna® contains local penetrant translaminar fungicide, pyraclostrobin, which passes from one side of the leaf to the other, enabling fungitoxic concentrations of the active substance within the leaf restricting growth of fungal pathogens inside the plant.

Translaminar movement through the leaf builds a concentration of the active substance on the opposite side of the leaf. Supressing existing infections beneath the site of fungicide application.

Pyraclostrobin’s affinity for lipids in the waxy cuticle, allows deposits of the active substance which are accumulated on both side of the leaf blade surface to be retained over time.These accumulated deposits serve as a weather resistant reservoir, releasing active substance both across the leaf surface and into deeper tissues over several weeks for longer protection.
