PERpose Plus broad-spectrum algaecide/fungicide from A Growing Alternative is a hydrogen peroxide-based product. It is formulated and specifically engineered to include a proprietary blend of stabilizers and buffers to counteract phytotoxicity. Its primary mode of action is oxidation of the outer cell membrane of vegetative endorspore, yeast and mold spore cells, fungus and algae.
 
Mozart TR fungicide from BASF, with the active ingredient fludioxonil, controls a broad spectrum of greenhouse diseases, including alternaria, botrytis, downy mildew, powdery mildew and rust. One six-ounce can covers 4,500 square feet of greenhouse space. In growing conditions with high disease pressure, growers can increase the number of cans to cover every 1,500 square feet of the affected area.
 
ZeroTol broad-spectrum algaecide/fungicide from BioSafe Systems has a newly updated label in California. This expanded label includes new applications for treatment of hard surfaces and greenhouse tools and equipment to prevent the spread of algal and fungal growth. In addition, ZeroTol is now labeled to treat several new organisms, including black spot, downy and powdery mildew, leaf spot, pseudomonas and xanthomonas, among others.
 
RootShield WP biological fungicide from BioWorks is OMRI (Organic Materials Review Institute) approved and listed for use in organic production. This wettable powder formulation of RootShield allows application through drip systems and drip irrigation booms used for soil drenches. RootShield WP provides preventative control, for up to 12 weeks per application of major root diseases including pythium, fusarium, rhizoctonia, thielaviopsis and cylindrocladium by growing on roots, protecting them against damaging fungi.
 
Affirm WDG fungicide from Cleary Chemical is a replacement for Endorse WP. Affirm WDG represents a new 11.3 percent Polyoxin D formulation, which is 4.5 times more concentrated than Endorse. This new, easy-mixing WDG formula now provides the same effective disease management previously developed by Cleary for turf and ornamental uses, at a much lower, 2.4-pound-per-acre use rate.

Palladium from Syngenta Crop Protection is now registered for use on ornamental crops. Palladium offers both contact and systemic activity against Botrytis cinerea and other foliar and stem diseases. Palladium contains the active ingredient cyprodinil, which provides a new, systemic mode of action for control of ornamental diseases. It works within the plant’s tissues by inhibiting disease penetration and reproduction. The second active ingredient, fludioxonil, provides contact and long-lasting residual protection on the plant surface.
 
FMC Professional Solutions has a winter incentive for Segway fungicide, offering a rebate of $20 per unit for purchases of six bottles or more of Segway fungicide from February 1 through March 31, 2011.
