Propiconazole's mode of action is demethylation of C-14 during ergosterol biosynthesis, and leading
to accumulation of C-14 methyl sterols. The biosynthesis of these ergosterols is critical to the formation
of cell walls of fungi. This lack of normal sterol production slows or stops the growth of the fungus, effectively preventing further infection and/or invasion of host tissues. Therefore, propiconazole is considered to be fungistatic or growth inhibiting rather than fungicidal or killing.
