Chemical Action and Usages: Triforine is a systemic fungicide that exhibits protectant, eridicant, and curative activity. It is locally systemic, is quickly absorbed by the plant and should be applied on or before an infection occurs. Triforine is labeled for control of black spot, powdery mildew and rust on roses and is one of the fungicides endorsed by The American Rose Society. On certain ornamentals, it is labeled for control of powdery mildew, rust, leaf spot and petal blight. Triforine breaks down rapidly in the environment.

Cautions/Instructions: Read the label carefully of the brand and formulation you have selected. Apply the product according to the directions on the label. Application instructions vary by plant and disease type.

Toxicity: Low toxicity to birds, wildlife, fish, bees, and other beneficial insects. In humans, triforine can cause severe eye damage, skin irritation and respiratory problems.
