    Description

    TECHNICAL FIELD



    [0001] The present invention relates to a fungicide composition for agricultural and horticultural use. More specifically, the present invention relates to a fungicide composition for agricultural and horticultural use which exhibits an excellent controlling effect against plant diseases even at a low dosage and is free from concerns about phytotoxicity to useful plants.

    [0002] Priority is claimed on Japanese Patent Application No. 2015-201240, filed October 9, 2015.

    BACKGROUND ART



    [0003] A lot of chemicals for control of crop diseases is used in cultivation of agricultural and horticultural crops. However, for the reasons such as insufficient control efficacy, restriction of its use due to the appearance of drug-resistant pathogenic fungi, phytotoxicity and contamination to plants, or toxicity to human beings, beasts, fishes and the like, many of them cannot be said to be satisfactory control chemicals.

    [0004] Under such circumstances, various fungicide compositions containing a nitrogen-containing heterocyclic compound and/or a salt thereof as an active ingredient have been proposed (for example, refer to Patent Documents 1 and 2).

    [0005] Compounds for use in plant disease control, including those compounds having antifungal activity, and methods of controlling plant diseases are also described elsewhere (see Patent Documents 2 to 8).

    DISCLOSURE OF INVENTION


    Problems to be Solved by the Invention



    [0007] An object of the present invention is to provide a fungicide composition for agricultural and horticultural use which exhibits an excellent controlling effect against plant diseases even at low dosage and is free from concerns about phytotoxicity to useful plants.

    Means for Solving the Problems



    [0008] Intensive researches were conducted to solve the above-mentioned problems. As a result, the present invention including the following aspects has been completed.

    [0009] That is, the present invention is as follows.

    (Cucumber Gray mold disease control test)



    [0081] A compound of formula (a-1 to (a-6) and compound B were dissolved in an organic solvent and a surfactant to obtain an emulsion. The emulsion was diluted to a predetermined concentration with water. The diluted solution of emulsion was sprayed on the cotyledons of cucumber (variety: SHIMO SHIRAZU), and air-dried at room temperature. Subsequently, a conidia suspension of cucumber gray mold fungus (Botrytis cinerea) was inoculated dropwise. It was placed in a dark room at 20 °C and a high humidity for 4 days. The state of spots appeared on the leaves was compared with untreated area and the control rate was calculated. The tests were carried out in duplicate.

    [0082] The theoretical control rate in the diluted solution of emulsion containing both a compound of formula (a-1) to (a-6) and compound B was calculated using the actual measurement control rate of the diluted solution of emulsion containing a compound of formula (a-1) to (a-6) alone or containing compound B alone according to Colby's formula.

    M: Actual measurement control rate (%) of the diluted solution of emulsion containing alone

    N: Actual measurement control rate (%) of the diluted solution of emulsion containing compound B alone

    E: Theoretical control rate (%) of the diluted solution of emulsion containing both and compound B



    [0083] The control rate of 0% means that spots of the same degree as the untreated area was observed, and the control rate of 100% means that spots were not observed.
