In the last issue of The Grape Line, Arysta LifeScience showcased products to help early-season disease, weed and insect pressure. To follow up, this issue will focus on helping growers with late-season control in their vineyards:
- VITICURE® Fungicide gives grape growers an economical and highly effective option that goes beyond prevention of Powdery mildew through reach-back activity, which can help cure existing infections. A locally systemic protectant fungicide, VITICURE is a unique triazole that has no known cross-resistance to other Group 3 DMI fungicides. The product has fuming action to penetrate dense, web-like mats of hyphal strands (mycelia), and VITICURE controls Powdery mildew in nooks and crannies where other fungicides can’t reach. It can be tank-mixed with PH-D® and ELEVATE® Fungicides, and when applied in a Powdery mildew spray schedule, VITICURE enhances the activity of registered fungicides used for the control of Botrytis bunch rot, showcasing how VITICURE plays an important role in resistance management programs for vineyards.
- PH-D® Fungicide helps provide control of Bunch rot organisms like Botrytis and Cladosporium as well as having preventive and suppressive activity against Powdery mildew. PH-D is a Group 19 broad-spectrum fungicide with a mode of action that inhibits fungal cell wall formation. Additionally, it improves the efficacy of other products like VITICURE that are designed to control Powdery mildew, enhancing the value of PH-D to grape growers.
- ELEVATE® Fungicide gives wine and table grapes the protection they need against Botrytis bunch rot. ELEVATE is a member of the FRAC group 17 fungicide class, making it an excellent fit in resistance management plans. When used in tank mixes, ELEVATE will help ensure effective disease control while preserving a grape grower’s fungicide options for years to come.
