WWW.POTATOGROWER.COM 27 Huma Gro • (480) 970-7525 • 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's compatible with most other inputs, so it's 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. Proud 3 Huma Gro PROUD 3 is an organic- listed crop protection product. It is a safe and effective, foliar-applied insecticide, miticide and fungicide. The mode of action is as a contact killer. As an insecticide, it works best on soft-bodied insects or on juveniles. Other benefits include: • Directly affects soft-bodied insects and mites • Provides excellent control against fungal/bacterial diseases in crops • Activates natural defense mechanisms in plants • Offers proven control of some human pathogens found on crops • Safe for crops, humans and the environment • Fungicidal effect against all types of fungal spores • Natural chemistry has no documented cross-resistance • Zero-day REI • Zero-day pre-harvest interval Oro Agri • (559) 442-4996 • www.oroagrinorthamerica.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. 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. Regev Fungicide Potato growers now have access to a first-of-its-kind hybrid fungicide, Regev. This is the first product to combine the disease control activity of a botanical ingredient (tea tree oil) with a conventional fungicide (difenoconazole). Regev controls a broad range of diseases in potatoes including early blight, brown spot, white mold, black dot and gray mold. It even controls bacterial diseases such as leaf spot and soft rot. A primary advantage of Regev is that it has two active ingredients but only one residue. One mode of action works by cell membrane disruption (FRAC Group 46) while the other MOA affects sterol biosynthesis in membranes (FRAC Group 3). Having these two modes of action provides REGEV with its high efficacy against a wide range of plant diseases. The natural botanical ingredient in Regev–tea tree oil– delivers activity against both fungal and bacterial pathogens. Summit Agro USA • (984) 260-0407 • www.summitagro-usa.com
