Marrone Bio Innovations’ Regalia Fungicide Gets California Registration
Jan. 13, 2010
Regalia from Marrone Bio Innovations (MBI) has been approved by the California Department of Pesticide Regulation (DPR) for use in the state. Regalia contains a unique active ingredient from the extract of giant knotweed that provides control of both fungal and bacterial diseases.
Regalia helps with management of downy mildew and walnut blight. It provides early season control of powdery mildew in grapes, and can be safely used in rotation with sulfur. It also offers late season control of botrytis bunch rot.
Also, for the increasing number of growers following organic and/or sustainable practices, Regalia is fully compliant with the National Organic Program (NOP) and is an OMRI (Organic Materials Review Institute) listed material.
Regalia works by switching on the plant’s own natural defense mechanisms so plants produce and accumulate higher levels of natural proteins and other compounds that inhibit disease development. This novel mode of action makes it a critically important IPM tool for fungicide resistance management.
Regalia has a re-entry interval (REI) of only 4 hours and a zero day pre-harvest interval (PHI) giving growers excellent operational flexibility and a residue free harvest. A complete list of crops and diseases may be found on the product label.
