Trade and Other Names: Trade names for products containing imazalil include Bromazil, Deccozil, Fungaflor, Freshgard, and Fungazil. The fungicide is compatible with many other types of pesticides.

Regulatory Status: Imazalil is a moderately toxic compound in EPA toxicity class II. Labels for products containing it must bear the Signal Word WARNING [1]. Imazalil is a General Use Pesticide (GUP).

Chemical Class: imidazole

Introduction: Imazalil is a systemic imidazole fungicide used to control a wide range of fungi on fruit, vegetables, and ornamentals, including powdery mildew on cucumber and black spot on roses. Imazalil is also used as a seed dressing and for postharvest treatment of citrus, banana, and other fruit to control storage decay. Under natural conditions, it is less likely that imazalil treatment will lead to resistant strains of fungi than as a result of treatment with other fungicides.
