Multi-mode of action

The multiple modes of action in Cerefit provide a unique combination of 2 active ingredients each contributing to excellent disease control and resistance management. 


Cerefit provides increased flexibility through its wide window of application.

Higher yield potential

Cerefit helps achieve the highest yield potential in barley, oats and winter wheat. Leaf diseases can reduce potential yield up to 20%. This percentage can increase when the environment is warm and humid. Cerefit provides broad-spectrum control of leaf diseases.


Below lists the crops that Cerefit fungicide can be used on.




Wheat, Durum (Triticum durum)

Wheat, Spring (Triticum aestivum)

Winter Wheat


Cerefit is registered in Canada for sprayer application.
