How it Works

  • The active ingredient in Caramba is metconazole. Metconazole is part of the triazole (Group 3) family of fungicides which have protective activity on a number of foliar diseases in a range of crops.
  • Caramba is a systemic fungicide which means it moves into the plant, as opposed to just staying on the plant surface.

Application Tips

Ground Application

  • Apply Caramba when conditions are favourable for the development of disease.
  • Use a minimum water volume of 40 L/acre (100 L/ha). Ensure thorough coverage of foliage.

Aerial Application

  • Apply Caramba when conditions are favourable for the development of disease.
  • Use a minimum water volume of 20 L/acre (50 L/ha). Ensure thorough coverage of foliage.

When to Apply

Cereals:

  • Fusarium Head Blight Activity; leaf disease control - at Heading
    • Wheat, Oats and Rye - To maximize yield and manage FHB apply Caramba at a rate of 0.405L/acre (1L/ha) when crops are at 20% flowering.
    • Barley – 0.405L/acre (1L/ha) between full head emergence to up to 3 days after full emergence of main stem heads.
  • Leaf Disease Control - prior to heading
    • Apply prior to disease development or at the onset of disease symptoms at a rate of  0.202 – 0.283 L/ac (0.5 – 0.7 L/ha)
