Iprodione is a colorless, odorless crystal. It is a dicarboximide contact fungicide used to control a wide variety of crop diseases by inhibiting the germination of spores and the growth of the fungal mat (mycelium). The primary use of iprodione as soil treatment is for control of white rot disease (Sclerotium cepivorum) of onions. Its half-life in most soils is estimated to be 14 days. Studies on rats show that iprodione is slightly toxic by ingestion. Current evidence on the carcinogenicity of iprodione is inconclusive. The pathway is based on Athiel et al., 1995.
The following is a text-format Iprodione pathway map. An organism which can initiate the pathway is given, but other organisms may also carry out later steps. Follow the links for more information on compounds or reactions. This map is also available in graphic (11k) format.
