OHP's Veranda O Fungicide: Expanding Control
The fungicide is now labeled for additional crops.
April 15, 2010
OHP's Veranda O fungicide is now labeled for vegetables and bedding plants, meaning the battle against botrytis and rhizoctonia has a new ally.
The addition of vegetables to the Veranda O label gives growers the added flexibility of purchasing one product that controls diseases on both ornamental and vegetable crops. Plus, control comes in the form of an environmentally friendly fungicide that is soft on mammals, beneficial insects and birds. The fungicide carries a four-hour restricted entry interval (REI).
In addition to vegetable labeling, Veranda O is labeled for control of alternaria blight, anthracnose, botrytis, fusarium, powdery mildew, sclerotinia and rhizoctonia root and crown rot on ornamentals. Active as a spray or a drench, Veranda O contains the active ingredient Polyoxin D, a natural antibiotic and fermentation product of a soil bacterium.
Veranda O is also an easy-to-use water dispersible granule (WDG) formulation that features a unique mode of action, preventive and curative activity, long-term residual control and locally systemic activity. The fungicide is packaged in a 1-pound container, which at an average rate of 4 ounces per 100 gallons, gives growers a 400-gallon mix container.
Additionally, OHP is in the midst of publishing a new guide with all of its current OHP ornamental products labeled for vegetable use. For more information, visit OHP.com.
