Product Overview

Mural Fungicide Ornamentals

Two active ingredients provide broad-spectrum disease control

Mural® fungicide offers one versatile solution powered by an advanced generation SDHI and Heritage® fungicide to control the widest range of root and foliar diseases in ornamental and vegetable plants. Mural provides control of key foliar, stem and root diseases including Botrytis, Rhizoctonia and leaf spots like powdery mildew and anthracnose.

Solatenol® fungicide, one of the active ingredients in Mural, was designed with a benzonorbornene ring that has a strong attraction to the SDHI binding site within the fungal mitochondria.

Comparisons are made with recommended label rates. Mural is formulated to mix readily and stay in suspension with minimal agitation, making use and application easier.

Testimonials

Jim Daugherty
Head Grower
Corso's Perennials

“With Mural’s broad-spectrum control and longevity, we use it to target a large number of potential and unexpected situations. We find it effective on Botrytis, anthracnose, Rhizoctonia, rust, Phytophthora, Alternaria and mildews. We find Mural to work very well in the prevention of mildews and the residual effect is always a great factor when using this product. When choosing a fungicide with the benefits Mural has, you must always be cautious of phytotoxicity and PGR effects. We have seen neither of these on our crops thus far.”

“We applied Mural at the 6 oz rate to hundreds of varieties of common ornamental bedding plants as a preventive treatment. We also used it specifically for powdery mildew. It is superior to anything else we have used and has successfully prevented the disease. It made me look at Mural as my first choice for powdery mildew control. With its dual chemistry, we are seeing better results than with previous fungicides.”

Tom Gunther
Young Plant Lead Grower
Lucas Greenhouses

“Our primary target in the early stages of propagation is Botyrtis and Mural gives us effective control. We apply it as a drench within 24 hours of the stick process. We also use a Mural/Mainspring GNL tank mix as a pre-ship foliar spray. This application guarantees that we will maintain pest control through the transit process and into the first ten days of production. Growers often ask about our experience with Mural. It’s simple - what we don’t see is trouble. Our liner crops start clean and finish clean. Whether you are a propagator or a finish grower, Mural should be in your pest management program.”

Kathleen Baughman
Operations Manager
Iwasaki Brothers Greenhouse

“Before Mural, there were no chemistries available that we could drench for powdery mildew. We were rotating fungicides and spraying a lot. We applied Mural as a drench and didn’t have any powdery mildew problems. It kept our dahlias and hanging baskets completely clean, despite being a high pressure season. Mural provided more than 4 weeks of control. The fact that we can drench Mural has really helped us and saved both time and labor.”

Powdery Mildew

A common ornamental disease, powdery mildew can affect crops in both greenhouse and nursery operations.

Petunia – untreated

Powdery Mildew

When applied as a drench, Mural moves through the roots and into the foliage so all parts of the plant are protected, even new plant growth. Mural has shown systemic performance in controlling foliar diseases such as powdery mildew and rust in certain crops when applied as a soil treatment.

Rhizoctonia

Mural controls a wide array of soilborne diseases, like Rhizoctonia Root and Crown Rot. It moves throughout plant tissue when absorbed by roots to protect plants from fungal pathogens.

Botrytis

Even at low use rates, Mural provides great control of Botrytis, a prevalent disease that can affect bedding plants like geraniums.

Geranium – untreated

Botrytis

With its unmatched systemic movement and effectiveness at low use rates, Mural offers outstanding Botrytis control.

Geranium – 4 oz. Mural spray, 5 days after inoculation

Botrytis

Mural provides stronger control at a lower use rate compared to industry alternatives.

Preventing Common Propagation Diseases

Protecting plants during propagation can be a challenge. Unrooted cuttings and young seedlings generally require warm temperatures along with frequent misting or high humidity so they can root into the planting media. This warm, humid environment also provides optimal conditions for spores of pathogenic agents to germinate, invading wounds and tender plant tissue. Plants in propagation can be at risk of developing various diseases including foliar blights caused by Botrytis cinerea, leaf spots caused by Alternaria, Colletotrichum and Myrothecium spp. as well as lower stem rots. Young seedlings are also at risk of damping-off from Pythium, Phytophthora and Rhizoctonia spp. when the growing media is wet for a prolonged period of time.  Read more »

Plant Health Benefits + Disease Control

Effective disease control and proper root growth are essential during all stages of production, but particularly during propagation. At low use rates of 4 oz. (foliar) or 2-3 oz. (drench), Mural® fungicide provides broad-spectrum disease control and offers plant health benefits, like increased root density.

Mural is powered by two active ingredients, Solatenol® and azoxystrobin. Azoxystrobin is in the strobilurin class of chemistry. It affects physiological processes within plants that result in observable plant health benefits, such as:

Plant health effects, such as root enhancement are more often seen at lower use rates. The higher the use rate, the less likely root benefits will be observed.
