Cumacin can be used both for curative and preventive action. It can also be used at the germination stage to reduce the time between the germination and the seedling stage of plant. In groundnut Cumacin was sprayed on the seeds during germination and the seedling was observed on the 11th day as compared to 21st day observed earlier. It is advisable to spray Cumacin for preventive purpose every 15-20 days.

For best results mix the concentrate in water and take a foliar spray where particle size is not more than 4 microns (foggy spray) and do not water the plant for upto 48 hours after the spray. Observations from the pilot run conducted throughout India have shown that for maximum efficiency spray should be taken between 6am to 9am in the morning before the sun is overhead.

Test report from the pilot run in grapes have also shown that the per hectare cost of using Cumacin is almost 1/10th the cost that the farmers are currently incurring to save their farms from infections like Powdery Mildew and Downy Mildew
