Strike Plus Fungicide from OHP Inc. is now available for the ornamentals market through authorized distributors.
Strike Plus contains two active ingredients for dual modes of action (MOA), giving more broad-spectrum control of troublesome foliar diseases.
“Strike Plus is a broad-spectrum fungicide that can be used both inside and outside and as a preventive or curative. The user simply adjusts the rate accordingly,” says Dr. Carlos Bográn, OHP technical manager.
The product contains triadimefon, the active ingredient in Strike 50 WDG fungicide, plus trifloxystrobin, the active ingredient in Compass O fungicide, in a wettable dispersible granule (WDG) formulation.
A combination of a sterol inhibitor (triadimefon) and a strobilurin (trifloxystrobin), Strike Plus provides systemic and translaminar activity on many diseases including powdery mildew, rusts, scab, black spot, leaf spots, downy mildew and others.
With its dual modes of action, Strike Plus is a good fit into a resistance management program, notes Dr. Bográn.
OHP will phase out Strike 50 WDG but will maintain federal and state registrations for a period of time so growers can use up existing stock.
