WWW.POTATOGROWER.COM 27 Oro Agri • (559) 442-4996 • www.oroagriusa.com PREV-AM PREV-AM is a three-in-one insecticide, fungicide and miticide. It is a contact pesticide that can be applied throughout the season without danger of resistance buildup and is perfect for controlling pre-harvest insect and disease infestations. With a short REI and PHI, PREV-AM is a versatile alternative to conventional pesticides and is ideal for IPM and sustainable farming practices. The desiccating properties of PREV-AM result in quick knockdown of insects and mites, typically within two to 24 hours. The water- repellent layer protecting most insects loses its effectiveness when contacted by a PREV-AM application. This allows the active ingredient to penetrate and destroy the soft, living tissues underneath. The insects and mites are then exposed to the loss of body fluids, causing death. As a fungicide, the PREV-AM spray solution breaks down the protective membranes of the superficial fungal mycelia (hyphae) and spores, allowing the active ingredient to penetrate and destroy the living tissues underneath. This exposes the organism to the drying effect of the atmosphere and causes collapse within two to 24 hours. Plant tissue damaged by the fungus may also dry out and prevent further spread of infection, but healthy tissue is not affected at the recommended application rate. Syngenta • (866)-SYNGENTA • www.SyngentaUS.com/Potatoes Minecto Pro A broad-spectrum, foliar insecticide, Minecto Pro controls the most important potato pests including Colorado potato beetles and potato psyllids. By harnessing the power of two complementary active ingredients, cyantraniliprole and abamectin, into one convenient pre-mix formulation, Minecto Pro offers exceptional control of these difficult-to-manage pests. Besiege Besiege insecticide, which contains the active ingredients chlorantraniliprole and lambda-cyhalothrin, is a broad- spectrum foliar insecticide providing fast knockdown and long-lasting residual control of a wide range of pests in potatoes, including armyworms, Colorado potato beetle and potato psyllid. Huma Gro • (800) 961-1220 • www.humagro.com Promax Huma Gro Promax is a broad-spectrum, soil-applied fungicide and nematicide used as a preventive and curative agent. OMRI-listed and EPA-exempt, Promax can be applied at any point in the growing season. It doesn't keep growers out of the field and is not harmful to roots. Promax has no restricted use and no buffer zones, re-entry intervals or residues. It is compatible with most other inputs, making it an ideal product for tank-mix strategies and rotation programs. With Promax, growers are working toward the long term and not burning out soil for quick results. When a program is implemented that combines Huma Gro Zap seven to 10 days after the final Promax treatment, a beneficial soil biology is stimulated that will sustain fields for future crops.
