OxiDate 2.0 has a zero-hour re-entry interval and no pre-harvest interval. It kills bacterial and fungal pathogens on contact and has no mutation resistance. Amplitude Biofungicide Amplitude biofungicide has been approved for control of white mold on numerous row crops like beans, peas and other pulse crops, as well as bringing a new great solution for white mold control in potatoes. Additionally, it provides excellent control of Rhizoctonia and Pythium when soil-applied at planting for crops such as carrots and onions. Amplitude is an advanced biofungicide that offers growers a sustainable mode of action to help control tough diseases and minimize the development of resistance. Amplitude is a liquid biofungicide and will initially be available in 2.5-gallon containers and soon after in larger containers. Growers can contact their local crop protection suppliers for availability information. Moncut SC Moncut SC is a liquid formulation fungicide that provides reliable, effective control of soil-borne potato diseases with extended residual activity. The active ingredient in Moncut SC, flutolanil, protects both the seed piece and tuber set. Moncut SC is a curative and preventative treatment, stopping disease progress and preventing future infections. The systemic activity of Moncut SC delivers protection to the entire plant and developing root systems. Moncut SC is an excellent fit in resistance management programs. Prevont Sym-Agro has commercially launched Prevont fungicide/ bactericide, for use on tree fruit, grapes, fruiting vegetables, potatoes, cucurbits, melons and berries. Prevont is highly effective against fungal and bacterial diseases. Prevont contains a highly active, patented strain of Bacillus subtilis, which is 400 times more active than competing products. It uses multiple non-toxic modes of action to control and suppress diseases. Prevont triggers a response from the plant, prompting it to defend itself against pathogens, and it prevents infection from pathogens through competitive exclusion. This multiple-site mode of action not only creates an effective fungicide, but also makes it very difficult for diseases to develop resistance. With a four-hour re-entry interval and zero-day pre-harvest interval, Prevont is an excellent tool for late-season disease problems, right up to and including the day of harvest. Sonata Sonata fungicide from Wilbur-Ellis helps protect potato plants against early. Based on a patented strain of Bacillus pumilus, Sonata is an excellent fit for integrated disease management programs.
