The bio-pesticide company Certis USA introduces Carb-O-Nator, a broad spectrum foliar fungicide which works on contact to control powdery mildew, Alternaria, Anthracnose, Botrytis, Septoria leaf spot, and other diseases.
Carb-O-Nator is registered for use on agricultural crops, terrestrial and ornamental, greenhouse and nursery plants, and turf.
The fungicide is registered for use on acorn squash, almond, apple, apricot, cantaloupe, cherry, chicory, melons, cucumber, endive, escarole, grape, honeydew, lettuce, muskmelon, peach, pear, pepper, pistachio, plum, prune, pumpkin, radicchio, rose, spinach, strawberry, summer squash, tomato, walnut, watermelon, winter squash, and zucchini.
Its active ingredient, potassium bicarbonate, has proven efficacy against plant disease coupled with a high level of safety to workers, bees, wildlife, and the environment.
Carb-O-Nator works on contact and is a good selection for use in disease resistance management programs. The fungicide has a reentry interval of four hours, a zero-day pre-harvest interval, and is residue exempt, making it a highly flexible fungicide to use.
It is USDA National Organics Program compliant and OMRI listed.
Carb-O-Nator offers simple yet effective foliar disease control. The formulation contains 85 percent potassium bicarbonate by weight.
The company developed a new proprietary formulation which exhibits superior dispersing and spreading properties that eliminate the need to use a spreader sticker in the mixing tank.
Through a combination of osmotic pressure, pH and the activity of carbonate and bicarbonate ions, Carb-O-Nator quickly eradicates foliar diseases.
