Application Notes
Carbendazim is a broad-spectrum systemic antimycotic. Its mode of action is to inhibit the formation of mitotic microtubules in of fungi.1 In a study, 10 ppm minimum inhibitory concentration of carbendazim is most effective toward of Fusarium mangiferae, a fungus that affects mango plants. 2 Carbendazim has also been reported to have cytokinin-like activity effect in plant tissue cultures, e.g., Asparagus, Cordyline and Prunus. 3
