The spraying window for Serifel biofungicide is between 50 and 120 degrees, meaning it can easily be applied in most growing conditions. It's also UV tolerant. It survived seven days when exposed to intense UV light such as what would be found at the equator. It can also tolerate up to 120 degrees after application. Unlike most biofungicides on the market, Serifel biofungicide is rainfast within only three hours. "You can apply Serifel biofungicide and have confidence that it won't wash away," said Mila Pearce, BASF Product Manager.
