Micora Fungicide

Micora Fungicide

Micora fungicide from Syngenta provides long-lasting preventive protection on foliar, stem and root diseases caused by downy mildew fungi and Phytophthora spp., including P. ramorum and curative control when applied one to two days after infection. Micora provides outstanding preventive protection and control at low-use rates, and it has no negative effects on beneficial insects, making it an ideal tool for integrated crop management programs. It is labeled for use on ornamental crops as well as certain vegetables grown for resale as transplants.


Orvego Fungicide

Orvego fungicide controls all major ornamental downy mildews and Phytopthora species tested. It combines the active ingredient ametoctradin with dimethomorph (the same active ingredient in Stature SC fungicide). Orvego fungicide is excellent as part of a rotational program and can be used in greenhouses, lath houses and container and field nurseries, as well as in interiorscapes. It works best when applied preventively or at first sign of disease and is an effective resistance management tool for growers.

Actinovate SP Biofungicide

Diseases are creeping back into the greenhouse. But you can fight back with Actinovate SP biofungicide. Used in greenhouses everywhere, Actinovate SP is an ideal tool for controlling powdery mildew and other harmful foliar diseases. Actinovate SP also fights root diseases, has a short re-entry interval (REI) and is a great way to solve disease resistance issues. Compatible with other biologicals, chemicals and fertilizers, Actinovate SP is a perfect partner for a greenhouse IPM program.


Segway from FMC is a new highly effective fungicide to control Pythium, Phytophthora and downy mildew diseases on ornamental plants in greenhouses, nurseries and landscapes. Segway provides the grower a novel mode of action, offering significant plant protection value as an excellent tank rotation partner for optimum control and resistant disease management. Segway has tank-mix compatibility with most fungicides, insecticides and fertilizers. Segway is typically applied by drench or spray. The re-entry interval is just 12 hours and cost-in-use is very competitively priced, so you save time, labor and money. Include Segway into your tank rotation program for best-in-class plant protection.


Phyton 35 Broad Spectrum Control Bactericide + Fungicide

Phyton 35 Broad Spectrum Control is a formulation bactericide plus fungicide that has distinctive perks for growers. It offers the benefits of Phyton 27 (broad spectrum efficacy, rapid absorption, no residue, long residual) in a new, copper-based product labeled for fruit, vegetable and herb crops, as well as nursery crops and ornamentals. In addition, Phyton 35 carries a less restrictive label (“warning” not “danger”) and is priced for routine disease prevention protocols. This concentrated formula, used at low preventative rates, is cost-effective in use. Phyton 35 Broad Spectrum Control is available in gallon and liter containers.

ZeroTol 2.0 Fungicide/Bactericide/Algaecide

ZeroTol 2.0 is a broad spectrum fungicide/bactericide/algaecide that keeps your plants disease-free from propagation through finish production.  Its two powerful active ingredients, hydrogen peroxide and peroxyacetic acid work in unison as a contact chemistry.  ZeroTol 2.0 reduces populations of dormant spores as well as active disease organisms.  ZeroTol 2.0 controls foliar and root diseases and has a zero-hour REI.  It  is compatible with biological control programs and is an excellent resistance management tool. Tank-mix ZeroTol 2.0 with most commonly used systemic chemicals for disease protection inside and out. With a broad-use label and disease control capabilities, ZeroTol 2.0 is the perfect addition to your spray program.

On December 1, Eric Wallien of Roberta’s Inc. in Waldron, IN, officially purchased C. Raker & Sons in Litchfield, MI.
