Properties and mode of action 
Pepelin is a contact fungicide for the control of powdery mildew on grapevines, hops, apple trees, peach trees, cucumbers, peas and ornamentals. Pepelin creates a plant protective coating on the surface of a plant that prevents the spores germination of certain plant diseases. As the Pepelin WG is contact fungicide, application should be made prior to infection.

 

Use

Pepelin is a preventive fungicide for the control of following plant diseases:

Major use:

  • Vines for the production of wine and table grapes for the control of powdery mildew (Unicula necator) at the  dose of 3-8 kg/ha in the developmental phase form the beginning of maturation (BBCH 09-81), to reduce the infection of black vine blight (Phomopsis Viticola) at a dose of 2,5-6,25 kg/hg in the development phase from the onset of swelling of the bud to the open sixth leaf (BBCH 01-16). In total, it can be treated on the same land for a maximum of 10 times in one growing season, at a 7 to 14 day interval. It also  has a side-effect on the decrease in the poplar mite population (Calepitrimerus vitis) and cane mites (Colomerus vitis)
  • Pome fruit (apple, pear, quince) for the control of apple powdery mildew (Podosphaera leucotricha) and the reduction of infection of the apple scab (Venturia inaequalis) and of the scab (Venturia pirina) at a dose of 5-8 kg/ha in the development phase when the tips of the green leaves are approximately 5 mm above the buds before maturation: the intensity of the varietal colors is increasing (BBCH 09-85). In total, the same land can be treated up to 14 times in one growing season. At a 7 to 14 day intervals. It also has side-effect on the reduction of leaf mites (Aculus sp.)
  • Stone fruit (peaches, apricots, nectarines and plums) for the partial reduction of infection with the peach and apricot powdery mildew (Sphaerotheca pannosa var. Persicae) at a dose of 5 to 7,5 kg/ha in the development phase when the tips of the green leaves are approximately 5 mm above the buds before maturation: the intensity of the varietal colors is increasing (BBCH 09-85). In total, the same land can be treated up to 14 times in one growing season. At a 7 to 14 day intervals.
  • Winter and grain cereals (wheat, barley, triticale and rye) to control powdery mildew (Erysiphe graminis) at a dose of 5-7,5 kg/ha in the development phase from the exposed fifth leaf to the end of flowering (BBCH 15-69). In total, the same land can be treated for a maximum of 3 times in one growing season, at 7 to 21 day intervals.
  • Cucurbits with edible and inedible peal (cucumber, pumpkins, zuccini, melons and watermelons) in the field for controlling the powdery mildew (Erysiphe cichoriacearum) at a dose of 5-7,5 kg/ha in the development of the third leaf on the main slit to phase when 70 % of the fruits have characteristic matured color (BBCH 13-87). In total, the same land can be treated for a maximum of 6times in one growing season, at a 7 to 14 day interval. It has also side-effect on mites (Acarina)
  • Fruit vegetables (tomato, peppers and eggplant) in the open air for controlling the powdery mildew (Leveillula taurica) at a dose of 5-8 kg/ha in the development phase from the phase of the fifth straight leaf to the end of flowering (BBCH 16-69). In total, the same land can be treated for up to 4 times in one growing season, at a 7 to 14 day intevals. It has also side-effect on mites (Acarina)
  • Hops for suppression of hops powdery mildew (Sphaerotheca humuli) at a dose of 6-7,5 kg/ha in the development phase when the plant reached 10% of the height to the stage, when 70 % of the cones are compact (BBCH 31-87). In total, the same land is treated not more than 10 times in one growing season, at 7 day interval. It has also side-effect on mites (Acarina)
  • Outdoor roses to partically reduce infection with powdery mildew (Sphaerotheca pannosa var. Rosae) at a dose 4,5-7,5 kg/ha in the development phase once first  leave is developed until full maturity (BBCH 11-89). In total, the same land is treated not more than 8 times in one growing season, at a 7 to 14 day interval. It has also side-effect on mites (Acarina)
