Akotan is a broad-spectrum, non-systemic contact fungicide that acts immediately to penetrate fungal spores. It acts primarily as a protectant that offers a different mode of action, which is ideal for fungicide resistance management. The multi-site contact activity attacks fungal protein-containing thiols (-SH groups), interferes with several chemical processes, interrupts metabolism and cell division, and ultimately prevents spores from germinating.

Akotan is used in Apple, Pear, Grape and Potato against Scab, Downey Mildew, Late and Early Blight
