MAIN PRODUCT BENEFITS


  • Contact and systematic activity-improved flower quality through successful and reliable control of Botrytis.
  • New chemistry-no cross-resistance hence provides a solution where resistant fungi have developed
  • Two different modes of action hence in bult anti-resistance strategy.
  • Broad-spectrum of activity-results in reduced number of application and thus cost of disease management.
  • Favourable safety profile-minimal impact on non-target organisms, a wide safety margin for beneficials and safe to users and consumers
  • Pre-harvest botrytis control applied 14 days before harvest.
