High performance disease control.

Downy mildew is considered a major disease in all sunflower producing countries in Europe. 

Compared to the competition, Lumisena® provides stronger and more consistent protection.


The active ingredient oxathiapiprolin is classified as a FRAC group 49 fungicide. Oxathiapiprolin is not cross resistant with other classes of fungicides used against oomycete pathogens. To reduce the risk of resistance development, Lumisena® should be used in mixture with a different mode of action fungicide active on the target oomycete disease.

Lumisena® has a favourable environmental profile if applied according to label recommendations. It is very effective on target organisms at extremely low use rates and has very low toxicity to non-target organisms. Mammalian oral, neurological, developmental and dermal toxicity is low, as is avian and bee toxicity.
