The difference between industrial fungicides and agricultural fungicides
Jul 09, 2018

The fungicide is also called a biocide, a bactericidal algaecide or a bactericidal biocide. It refers to a chemical that effectively controls or kills microbial bacteria, fungi, and algae in the water system. Mainly divided into industrial fungicides and agricultural fungicides.

Industrial fungicide

According to the sterilization mechanism, it can be divided into two categories: oxidative bactericidal bactericide and non-oxidizing bactericide. Oxidizing bactericides are usually strong oxidants, which are mainly sterilized by oxidation with metabolic enzymes in bacteria. Commonly used oxidizing biocides are chlorine gas, chlorine dioxide, bromine, ozone, hydrogen peroxide and the like. The non-oxidizing bactericide acts on a special part of the microorganism in the form of a toxic agent, thereby destroying the cells or living bodies of the microorganism to achieve a bactericidal effect. Common non-oxidizing bactericides are chlorophenols, isothiazolinones, quaternary ammonium salts. Wait.

Agricultural fungicide

It is a class of pesticides used to control plant diseases caused by various pathogenic microorganisms, and generally refers to fungicides. However, internationally, it is generally a generic term for agents that control various pathogenic microorganisms. With the development of fungicides, sub-classes such as bactericides, viricides and algicides are distinguished.

The fungicides are classified according to the source. Except that the agricultural antibiotics are biologically derived fungicides, the main varieties are chemical synthetic fungicides, and the fungicides are a kind of medicaments for controlling plant diseases. Any agent that kills or inhibits the growth of a pathogen, but does not hinder the normal growth of the plant, is collectively referred to as a bactericide. The fungicide can be classified according to the mode of action, source of raw materials and chemical composition.
