Metalaxyl Chemical Properties,Uses,Production


Metalaxyl (chemical name: methyl N-(methoxyacetyl)-N-(2, 6-xylyl)-DL-alaninate) is an acylalanine fungicide of systemic function. It can be used for the treatment of pythium and phytophthora in many kinds of vegetables and peas. However, there are severe problem of drug resistance in current days. Metalaxyl exhibits strong activity against the mycelial growth of various sensitive fungi such as pythium splendens. The primary effect of metalaxyl seems to be related to its effect of interfering with the normal synthesis of RNA and DNA in sensitive fungi strains.

Metalaxyl showed the highest activity amongst the four fungicides against mycelial growth of sensitive strains on agar media.

Agricultural fungicide. Phenylamide fungicide or use in food crops, shrubs and turf.

Agricultural Uses

Fungicide: Metalaxyl is used as a systemic fungicide on a variety of food and non-food crops including tobacco, turf and conifers, and ornamentals. Used in combination with fungicides of different mode of action as a foliar spray on tropical and subtropical crops; as a seed treatment to control downy mildew; and as a soil fumigant to control soilborne pathogens.
