|Full Text||The present invention relates to fungicidal composition comprising pyrimethanil and a phosphorous acid derivative.
The present invention relates to a fungicidal composition comprising pyrimethanil and at least one
phosphorus and more especially phosphorous acid derivative, and the use of such a composition
combining these active compounds for controlling plant, diseases or for controlling the
phytopathogenic fungi present or capable of appearing on plants, such a combination allowing in
particular extension in time of the activity of pyrimethanil.
Pyrimethanil is a fungicidal compound which is widely known and in particular which is described
in the book entitled The Electronic Pesticide Manual (Twelfth Edition) version 2.0 (by British Crop
Protection Council, published by Clive Tomlin).
Moreover, French patent application No. 2 692 108 which essentially relates to mixtures based on
pyrimethanil and numerous other compounds gives a list of more than eleven types of families of
fungicidal compounds and of more than 70 candidate compounds for the mixture; among this
systematic list of compounds, only 23 mixtures have led to laboratory experimentation, none under
open field conditions. The mixture of pyrimethanil and phosphorus (and in particular phosphorous
acid) derivative(s) is not at all mentioned or even suggested in this document. Such a mixture has
never been produced, much less tested.
Among the phosphorus derivatives known as fungicides are the phosphorous or phosphonic acid
derivatives such as phosphorous acid and its alkali or alkaline-earth metal salts, metal phosphites
(Al, Na) including in particular fosetyl-AI. This fungicide is widely known and is marketed in
particular under the name Aliette®. Fosetyl-AI is monoethyl ester-phosphonate-aluminum which is
described in particular in the following patents: DE-B-2 456 627, US-B-4139 616, and
US-B-4143 059, and in. "The Pesticide Manual", a World Compendium, 11th edition,
C.D.S. Tomlin, British Crop Protection Council, No. 599.
Moreover, Japanese patent application No. 05112408 describes combinations of fungicidal
compounds chosen from two groups. The first group comprises 2-anilino-4-methylpyrimidine type
derivatives of which 7 are given as an example while the second group relates to five other known
fungicidal compounds which are 2,6-dichloro-4-nitroaniline, iprodione, procymidone, fosetyl-AI and
polyoxin. However, the specific combination of pyrimethanil and a phosphorous acid derivative is
not described in this document whose aim is to provide a means of anti-fungal control which has a
broad spectrum or a synergistic effect.
The extension in time of the efficacy of pyrimethanil in the combination of the present invention is
not at all disclosed or suggested in any of these documents.
In the field of fungal activity, in particular for the protection of crops, one of the problems at the
heart of the research studies carried out in this technical field is the improvement of performances,
in particular in terms of fungal activity and especially in terms of maintaining this fungal activity
Naturally, the fungicides useful in protecting plants against fungi should be endowed with an
ecotoxicity which is reduced to the minimum, knowing that the users of fungal active ingredients,
as well as the consumers of the products derived from these crops, are increasingly aware.
In addition, from a toxicological point of view, fungicides should as far as possible be neither
dangerous nor toxic during their use.
Furthermore, if is advantageous for fungicides to have a broad activity spectrum.
The economic factor should of course not be overlooked in the search for novel fungicides.
The corollary of all this is that it is always desirable to reduce the doses of chemical products
spread in the environment for controlling fungal attacks on crops, in particular by reducing the
doses at which the products are applied and/or the frequency of application.
Without this being limiting, attention is more particularly paid in the context of the invention to the
protection of crops against infestation by fungi, such as gray mold, altemaria diseases, scabs,
monilia diseases or cercospora diseases, the crops most particularly affected being fruit or
vegetable crops including grapevine, arboriculture, banana and various vegetables.
Another advantage of the present invention is to allow better management of the phenomena of
resistance of phytopathogenic organisms of crops against known antifungal active ingredients.
Another difficulty relating to the use of numerous fungal materials lies in the accumulation of
several of the problems which have just been set out. It is indeed even more difficult to solve the
problems posed when they accumulate because the solutions which may be envisaged are
sometimes antinomical or even antagonistic.
One aim of the invention is therefore to provide a novel fungicidal composition which is useful for
solving the problems set out above, in particular a composition which makes it possible to improve
the persistence of action of pyrimethanil.
Another aim of the invention is to provide a novel fungicidal composition which is useful in the
preventive and curative treatment of fungal diseases, for example of fruit or vegetable crops
including grapevine, arboriculture, banana and the crops of various vegetables.
Another aim of the present invention is to provide a fungicidal composition possessing preventive,
curative, eradicant and antisporulant properties.
Another aim of the present invention is to allow the use of phosphorous acid derivatives, such as
fosetyl-AI, and of phosphorous acid itself against diseases affecting arboricultural crops and in
Another aim of this invention is to allow the treatments applied to crops to be spaced out or even
to allow the elimination of a number of these treatments.
Other aims of the invention will appear in the disclosure of the invention which follows.
Surprisingly, it has been discovered that all these aims,' among others, may be achieved
completely or partly by means of the fungicidal compositions which are the subject of the present
invention, combining as active agents pyrimethanii and at least one phosphorus derivative,
advantageously at least one phosphorous acid derivative.
The persistence of the fungicidal effects which the invention makes it possible to achieve has as
beneficial effect the reduction of the doses and of the number of applications required.
Preferably, the phosphorus derivative is a phosphorous acid derivative, preferably chosen from the
group comprising phosphorous acid derivatives such as metal phosphites such as fosetyl-AI,
fosetyl-Na, phosphorous acid and its alkali or alkaline-earth metal salts, and mixtures thereof;
fosetyl-AI and fosetyl-Na being more particularly preferred as well as phosphorous acid itself.
These particular combinations have proved very advantageous for pyrimethanil-other compound
ratios ranging from 0.1 to 1.
References to methods for preparing such compounds will be found in the book cited above.
In the composition according to the invention, the ratio of the quantities of pyrimethanil and of
phosphorous acid derivative generally ranges from 0.0005 to 250, preferably from 0.05 to 10, and
still more preferably from 0.05 to 1.
However, ratios of these compounds ranging from 0.1 to 10, preferably from 0.1 to 6, still more
preferably from 0.1 to 1, have proved even more advantageous.
A composition according to the invention which is particularly advantageous comprises
pyrimethanil and fosetyl-AI in a ratio ranging from 0.1 to 10, preferably from 0.1 to 6, still more
preferably from 0.1 to 1.
Usually, the compositions according to the invention comprise between 0.00001 and 100%,
preferably between 0.001 and 80%, of active compounds, 'Whether these compounds are combined, or whether they are in the form of two active ingredients used separately.
Unless otherwise stated, the proportions and percentages used or described throughout the
present description and in the claims which will follow are proportions or percentages by weight.
For their use in practice, the active substances of the composition according to the invention are
rarely used alone.
Thus, for their use, these active ingredients are usually combined with a solid or liquid carrier
which can be used in particular in the agricultural field, and optionally with at least one surfactant
and/or one or more auxiliary agents.
In particular, as carriers, there may be used inert and customary carriers; likewise, as surfactants,
there may be used the customary surfactants in the field of formulation of compositions, which are
intended for agricultural use, in particular for the treatment or protection of crops such as those of
the present invention.
According to another embodiment of the present invention, the various fungicidal compositions
according to the invention which have been described up until now may also be in the form of tank
These fungicidal compositions in the form of tank mixes are usually in the form of dilute fungicidal
Most often, these so-called tank mix fungicidal compositions are mixed in the reservoir of the
Usually, the fungicidal compounds used in the compositions according to the invention are •
therefore combined with one or more carriers and/or one or more substances useful for their
formulation. Thus, where appropriate, the compositions according to the invention may comprise up to 99% of carrier and/or up to 25% of one or more surfactants and/or up to 25% of one or more formulating agents.
In the present disclosure, the term carrier designates a natural or synthetic, organic or inorganic material with which the active ingredient(s) is(are) in the compositions according to the invention, in particular to facilitate their application to a plant, a fruit or alternatively to seeds or to the soil. This carrier is therefore generally inert and should most often be acceptable in agriculture, in particular by the treated plant or by the fruits of this plant in the broad sense. As examples of solid carriers which can be used, there may be mentioned natural or synthetic silicates, resins, waxes, fine powders or granules of clay, in particular kaolinic clay, diatomaceous earth, bentonite or acidic clay, synthetic silicon oxide hydrate, talcs, ceramics, other minerals including sericite, quartz, sulfur, activated charcoal, calcium carbonate, hydrated silica, or alternatively industrial fertilizers such as ammonium sulfate, ammonium phosphate, ammonium nitrate, urea or ammonium chloride, natural or synthetic silicates, resins, waxes, talc, lime, quartz, attapulgite, montmorillonite, bentonite or diatomaceous earth, alumina, or silicates, natural, pounded or crushed rocks, such as calcite, marble, pumice stone, sepiolite, and dolomite; synthetic granules of inorganic or organic flours; granules of organic material such as sawdust, coconut husk, maize ear or covering or tobacco stalk; kieselguhr, tricalcium phosphate, powdered cork, or adsorbent charcoal; water-soluble polymers.
As examples of liquid carriers which can be used, there may be mentioned water, alcohols and in particular methanol or ethanol, ketones and in particular acetone, methyl ethyl ketone or cyclohexanone, petroleum fractions, aromatic hydrocarbons including benzene, toluene, xylene, ethylbenzene or methylnaphthalene, nonaromatic hydrocarbons including hexane, cyclohexane, kerosene or gas oil, liquefied gas, esters including ethyl acetate and butyl acetate, nitriles including acetonitrile and isobutyronitrile, ethers including diisopropyl ether or dioxane, amides including N,N-dimethylformamide or N,N-dimethylacetamide, halogenated hydrocarbons including dichloromethane, trichloroethane or carbon tetrachloride, dimethyl sulfoxide, vegetable oils including soybean oil or cottonseed oil.
The surfactant(s) may be emulsifying, dispersing or wetting agents of the ionic or nonionic type. It is possible, for example, to mention salts of polyacrylic acids, salts of lignosulfonic acids, salts of phenolsulfonic or naphthalenesulfonic acids, polycondensates of ethylene oxide with fatty alcohols or with fatty acids or with fatty amines, substituted phenols, in particular alkylphenols or arylphenols, salts of sulfosuccinic acid esters, derivatives of taurine, in particular alkyl taurates, phosphoric esters of polyoxyethylated alcohols or phenols; it is possible to mention most particularly alkyl sulfonate salts, alkylaryl sulfonates, alkylaryl ethers, polyoxyethylenic derivatives thereof, polyethylene glycol ethers, polyalcohol esters, derivatives of sugars, alcohols and the like. The presence of at least one surfactant is generally essential when at least one of the active ingredients and/or the inert carrier are not soluble, in particular in water, in the case where the carrier agent for the application is water.
In the compositions according to the invention, it is also possible to combine with the active compounds all sorts of other ingredients or agents such as, for example, protective colloids, adhesives, thickening agents, thixotropic agents, penetrating agents, colorants such as inorganic pigments, preservatives, flavorings, antigels, stabilizing agents including isopropyl hydrogen phosphate, 2,6-di-tert-butyl-4-methylphenol, 2-tert-butyl-4-methoxyphenol and 3-tert-butyl-4-methoxyphenol, vegetable or mineral oils, fatty acids or esters thereof, sequestering agents, dispersing agents including casein, gelatin, saccharides and in particular starch powder, gum arabic, certain derivatives of cellulose or alginic acid, derivatives of lignin, bentonite, synthetic polymers soluble in water, in particular polyvinyl alcohol, polyvinylpyrrolidone, polyacrylic acids, as well as other active ingredients known for their pesticidal, in particular insecticidal or fungicidal, properties; or for their plant growth promoting properties, in particular fertilizers; or for their insect or plant growth regulating properties.
Moreover, the fungicidal compositions according to the invention may take fairly diverse forms, in particular they may be in solid or liquid forms. Thus, the compositions according to the invention may take numerous forms of formulations; thus, these compositions comprising the active compounds may be used in the form of an aerosol dispenser; suspension of capsules; cold fogging concentrate; dustable powder; emulsifiable concentrate; aqueous/aqueous type emulsion; oil/inverse type emulsion; encapsulated granule; fine granule; suspension concentrate for seed treatment; granule; hot fogging concentrate; macrogranule; microgranule; oil-dispersible powder, oil miscible suspension concentrate; oil-miscible liquid; paste; plant rodlet; powder for dry seed treatment; seed coated with a pesticide; smoke candle; smoke cartridge; smoke generator; smoke pellet; smoke rodlet; smoke tablet; smoke tin; soluble concentrate; soluble powder; solution for seed treatment; suspension concentrate (= flowable concentrate); ultra low volume liquid; ultra low volume suspension; vapor releasing product; water-dispersible granules or tablets; water dispersible powder for slurry treatment; water-soluble granules or tablets; water-soluble powder for seed treatment; wettable powder; as well as possible mixtures, associations or combinations of these various forms.
Apart from pyrimethanil and at least one phosphorus or phosphorous acid derivative such as fosetyl-AI, the composition according to the invention may also comprise other active compounds and in particular one or more active compounds which are useful for protecting plants against pests.
Among such active compounds, the composition according to the invention may therefore comprise one or more insecticidal, herbicidal or fungicidal compounds or growth regulating compounds.

According to another equally advantageous aspect, the present invention also relates to a method for the curative or preventive control of phytopathogenic organisms of plants; such a method according to the invention is based on the use of at least one composition or of at least one combination according to the invention.
This method is particularly advantageous in that it comprises a novel use of a phosphorus derivative to significantly improve the persistence of the action of pyrimethanil. Such a use has never been described up until now.
In the context of this novel application, the use of phosphorous acid or one of its derivatives as described above is preferred. The preferred phosphorous acid derivative is fosetyl-AI. During their use according to the invention, the active compounds used are used. in pyrimethanil/phosphorus derivative ratios such as those described above for the composition according to the invention.
Among the procedures or methods of treatment and/or protection according to the invention, those
which are used for the treatment and/or protection of crops are preferred, and among such
methods or procedures, those for the protection of crops are most particularly preferred.
Said use of the methods according to the invention may be carried out according to various forms
and in particular using a fairly wide variety of modes of application, but also according to various
techniques of application, or alternatively for the protection of various types, varieties or families of
vegetables or plants, or alternatively for combating or controlling various types of phytopathogenic
As regards the various modes of application usefully employed during the methods according to
the invention, simultaneous, separate, alternate or sequential modes of application are in particular
Nevertheless, most often, the modes of application useful during the methods according to the
invention and which are preferred consist of modes of simultaneously applying the active
However, a relatively advantageous variant of the method according to the invention uses an
alternate mode of application of the active compounds.
Another mode of application useful for carrying out the methods according to the invention relates
to the sequential application of the fungicidal compounds; such a sequential mode of application
may in particular take the form of several applications of pyrimethanil, followed by several
applications of phosphorous acid derivative(s).
Quite obviously, the reverse sequential mode of application consisting in several applications of
phosphorous acid derivative(s), followed by several applications of pyrimethanil, also forms part of
the methods of the present invention.
The various variants of carrying out the methods according to the invention which have just been
described may also be combined or associated, completely or partially, with each other.
Persons skilled in the art will easily know how to determine the associations or combinations of
modes of application according to the invention which are best suited to the use of the active
compounds which they envisage.
In addition to the various embodiments of the methods according to the invention which have just
been described, said methods can also use a fairly large number of application techniques; thus,
as said techniques, there may be mentioned in particular dusting, dipping, spraying, smoking or
During the application of the active compounds of the composition according to the invention by
dipping, in particular of fruits, the solution used advantageously comprises from 0.01 to 1% of
active ingredients, preferably from 0.1 to 1.0%, and still more preferably from 0.05 to 0.2%.
Other variants of the modes of application useful for the methods according to the invention exist,
particularly depending on the part(s) of the plant or vegetable which are treated or which are to be
Thus, the methods according to the invention may be carried out for the treatment or protection of
plant propagation material or seeds, in particular grain seeds, tubers or rhizomes; for the treatment
of roots, or for the treatment of the stems or leaves of the plant; as well as for the treatment of the
roots, or alternatively of the fruits or other parts of the plant which possess a substantial economic
or agronomic value.
Furthermore, said methods according to the invention may be carried out for the treatment of
plants at numerous stages of their development, in particular for the treatment of the seeds,
seedlings or seedlings for transplantation or plants for transplantation, or alternatively plants, fruits

An additional aspect of the present invention relates to a product for simultaneous, separate, alternate or sequential application of pyrimethanil and of at least one phosphorous acid derivative, preferably fosetyl-aluminum.
The example which follows will allow better illustration of the various aspects of the present invention, in particular of the aspects relating to the compositions and to the methods according to the invention using said fungicidal compositions. However, this example does not in any way limit the scope of the present invention.
Apple tree - Venturis inaequalis
The following fungicides are compared:
Pyrimethanil at the dose of 20 g/hl and mixtures.
fosetyl-AI + pyrimethanil at the doses of 50+20 and 100+20 g/hl applied in a plant protection
mixture volume of 1 200 I/ha.
The products are applied to an apple tree (Rome Beauty variety) which is sensitive to Venturis
The various products to be studied are sprayed every 7, 10 or 13 days (9, 7 and 6 applications in
total respectively) in a program of treatment starting on 28 March 2001.
Scores are awarded for the disease (% foliar surface area destroyed) on 14 May and
11 June 2001. The results are expressed as % of leaves attacked.
The addition of fosetyl-AI makes it possible to improve the persistence of the action of Pyrimethanil. Thus, the activity obtained during successive applications every 10 to 13 days makes it possible to reach the activity normally obtained during weekly applications and therefore to substantially reduce the number of treatments which it is necessary to apply in order to control the development of the disease.
