LURIT is a systemic fungicide which protects plants from fungi in the water mould family, such as Late blight and Downy mildew. LURIT moves up the treated plant stem and into growing leaves. It also has anti-sporulant activity, which helps to prevent the spread of blight between plants.

Trade Name: LURIT

Common Name: Dimethomorph

Formulation: 50% WP


  • LURIT provides excellent control of Oomycities fungal diseases in important crops.
  • LURIT has Translaminar Action - Good uptake into sprayed leaves. Acts on treated plants parts but is also redistribution in the plant tissue.
  • LURIT provides good rainfastness and longer residual control. Offers good residual activity for long spay intervals
  • LURIT offers a unique and novel mode of action with no cross-resistance to Phenylamide or strobilurine.
  • LURIT is effective against different stages of fungal lifecycle.
  • LURIT prevents sporulation much better than many other fungicides. The anti-sporulant. activity of LURIT fungicide stops, contains and kills Late blight spores, preventing the spread of blight between plants and neighbouring fields.
  • LURIT has a unique mode of action which disintegrates cell wall to kill the pathogen.
  • LURIT is effective against different stages of fungal lifecycle.

Mode of Action

  • LURIT affects cell wall production in fungi by inhibition of sterol synthesis. It disintegrates cell wall (Cell wall lysis) to kill the pathogen.
