Veranda O Label Expansion For Vegetables
June 3, 2010
Veranda O is particularly effective against botrytis and rhizoctonia on ornamentals and vegetables, according to OHP Director of Technical Services Jeff Dobbs.
Rates are 4 to 8 fluid ounces per 100 gallons. Growers should use Veranda O preventatively; that is, when conditions are ripe for disease development.
High humidity and cool, cloudy weather can be conducive to disease development. In the spring, growers should pay close attention to weather conditions and apply preventatively as needed.
The product carries a 4-hour Restricted Entry Interval (REI) and is classified as a "biopesticide" by U.S. EPA. The short REI makes Veranda O a particularly good choice in the spring as nights are short and growers often look for products with short REI intervals. Veranda O has a 0 day preharvest interval on many vegetables.
Veranda O, applied as a spray or drench, is soft on beneficial insects and predators.
Veranda O is a water dispersible granule containing 1.81 ounces of the active ingredient polyoxin D per pound. The unique mode of action makes Veranda O a great choice as a rotational fungicide against disease.
