Fungicide for the control of various diseases in apples, grapes, kiwifruit, onions, pears and stonefruit.


General Instructions

General Information

PRISTINE is a novel combination of carboxamide and strobilurin fungicides providing protectant activity against various diseases on apples, grapes, kiwifruit, onions, pears and stone fruit. It is locally systemic and translaminar to provide some protection to new growth. Thorough coverage of the crop is necessary for best results. Best results are obtained from protectant applications prior to the onset of infection.

Integrated Mite Control

PRISTINE is compatible with IMC programmes based on Typhlodromus pyri.

Resistance Management

PRISTINE contains boscalid, a carboxamide fungicide from the SDHI (Succinate Dehydrogenase inhibitors) mode of action group GROUP 7 FUNGICIDE, and pyraclostrobin, a stobilurin type fungicide from the QoI (Quinone outside Inhibitors) mode of action group GROUP 11 FUNGICIDE. Resistance to this fungicide could develop from excessive use. To minimise this risk use strictly in accordance with the label instructions and resistance management strategies that exist for any fungus listed on the label. PRISTINE should be used in a programme that incorporates fungicides with different modes of action to that of GROUP 7 and GROUP 11 fungicides. Refer to the NZCPR web site ( for more detailed information.

Direction for Use

It is an offence to use this product on animals.

On fruit crops, the rates recommended are for high volume spraying to the point of run off. For concentrate spraying adjust dilution rate accordingly. For concentrate spraying the rate of product applied must be equal to the rate that would be applied per hectare with dilute application (refer to tree row volume rate indications).


PRISTINE may be tank mixed with most commonly used insecticides and fungicides and with the plant growth regulator Regalis. In kiwifruit Pristine can also be tank mixed with foliar fertilizers.


No adjuvants are required.


Add the required amount directly into a partly filled spray tank with agitation operating. Complete filling and maintain agitation until spraying is complete.


PRISTINE is rainfast once dried on the crop. For apples and pears, cover sprays should be replaced after 50 mm of rainfall or after three or more consecutive days of significant rainfall, e.g. 12 mm or greater / day.
