Serifel


An innovative biological fungicide with three modes of action that forms a shield of protection on plants’ surfaces to protect against disease.

  • Targets botrytis and powdery mildew in grapes
  • Complements chemistry-based programs and helps manage the potential for resistance
  • Sets the quality standard for purity, performance and reliability
  • With no recordable residues, Serifel™ fungicide provides greater flexibility by extending the window of application, especially near harvest
  • Can be used for organic production
