Another Valent’s fungicide receives California registration
Dec. 24, 2009
Valent U.S.A. Corporation has received California state registration for Presidio fungicide in brassica (head and stem), bulb and root vegetable crops (except carrots, potatoes and sugar beets). The fungicide is currently registered on these crops in most states; New York registration is pending.
Available across a number of vegetables, Presidios breakthrough, targeted chemistry has proven highly effective for growers with crops threatened by downy mildews. Presidio also controls Phytophthora root rot.
"This new registration brings Presidios fast-acting chemistry and two-day pre-harvest interval to California brassica, bulb and root vegetable growers struggling with downy mildew and Phytophthora," said Rick Kraus, product manager. "And Presidios novel mode of action brings these growers a powerful tool to incorporate into their pest management programs and help ward off resistance concerns."
Unlike other fungicide products, Presidio has no known tank mix limitations with other fungicides or insecticides. Presidio can be applied via sprinkler or used as a foliar treatment.
Valent has also received California registration for the use of Quash fungicide on stone fruit and tree nuts (AgroNews 2009-11-03).
