Grape growers know that one of the main factors for successful disease control is preventative fungicide treatments. Issues such as Bunch rot and Powdery mildew can be addressed with one decision: to trust the proven protection of the fungicide portfolio from Arysta LifeScience.
Products including PH-D® Fungicide, ELEVATE® Fungicide and VITICURE® Fungicide provide effective disease control while preserving grape growers’ fungicide options for years to come:
- PH-D® Fungicide provides control of Bunch rot organisms like Botrytis and Cladosporium as well as having preventive and suppressive activity against Powdery mildew. PH-D is a FRAC 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 as part of a disease management program, ELEVATE will help ensure effective disease control while preserving a grape grower’s fungicide options for years to come.
- 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 imidazole that has no known cross-resistance issues with 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/or 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.
