Perfecting Your Disease Management Program

Ornamental crops are susceptible to a wide range of diseases from propagation to finish. An established disease management program, featuring the latest disease control innovations, can help ensure healthy plants by providing broader, more comprehensive disease control. Be sure to build your program with fungicides that feature different modes of action to avoid repeat applications and help prevent the development of fungal resistance.

A Closer Look: Fusarium

Fusarium is a difficult disease to control because once symptoms are visible, it’s often too late to prevent costly damage. For optimal control, you should monitor for conditions conducive to Fusarium development and plan ahead by incorporating a preventive fungicide application.

If Fusarium is a disease you battle often, then Postiva is a perfect fit for your operation. An early application of Postiva decreases the risk of a Fusarium outbreak because it has systemic and translaminar movement, which means it spreads to all parts of the plant for complete, preventive protection.
