Pageant Fungicide From BASF Is Expedited Disease Control

Pageant Fungicide From BASF Is Expedited Disease Control

Growers are always looking for ways to produce healthier plants and improve profitability. BASF Professional Turf & Ornamentals is helping growers meet both goals with Pageant fungicide, a combination of two fast-acting active ingredients: boscalid and pyraclostrobin.

When used as directed, Pageant provides effective broad spectrum control on key diseases, including anthracnose, downy mildews, powdery mildews, rusts, scabs, blights (botrytis and monilinia) and crown and basal rots (rhizoctonia, fusarium and cylindrocladium). Its formula starts working within minutes of application, inhibiting fungal respiration at two separate sites within the mitochondria of fungal pathogens. In effect, it creates a “double lockdown” on the respiration and energy flow within targeted fungi.

For additional value from a single application, Pageant can be tank mixed with most recommended fungicides, insecticides, herbicides, liquid fertilizers, biological control products, adjuvants and additives. Adjuvants may improve the performance of Pageant under certain conditions, but not all combinations of plants and tank mixes have been tested. Before tank mixing, test the combination on a small portion of the plant to be treated to ensure no phytotoxic response occurs. Generally, if the adjuvant or additive doesn’t cause phytotoxicity, the addition of Pageant will not. But be sure to test first, as not all plants are equal and there may be cultivar sensitivities.

Pageant, available in a 1-pound or 12-pound packaging, is labeled for use in greenhouses, outdoor nurseries, lathhouses and shadehouses, forest and conifer nurseries and plantations, golf courses, residential and commercial landscapes, retail nurseries, interiorscapes and containers (bench, flats, plugs and pots).

For additional information regarding Pageant fungicide, read the product label or visit BetterPlants.basf.us. Always read and follow the label instructions.

The man who headed up the National Gardening Survey for the past 35 years, Bruce Butterfield, has died. He was 67 years old. Butterfield’s work with the National Gardening Survey gave the green industry a reliable tool to understand consumer gardening practices and spending. Bruce Butterfield started his career as the Market Research Director at the National Gardening Association in 1978 and continued that same work until his death on September 5 as the Research Director at GardenResearch.com. “These many years of experience doing market research about gardeners and gardening trends gives him a unique understanding of who gardeners are, what they need and want, why they buy the products they do, where they shop, how gardening trends have changed in the past, and where they are headed in the future,” his bio on GardenResearch.com reads.       Butterfield was also behind What Gardeners’ Think and the Environmental Lawn […]

How Even An Overworked Plant Retailer Can Predict Consu…

Years ago, I read an article about Pottery Barn and the women who were making it a success. It was eye-opening to realize that a glossy, national chain like Pottery Barn used to buy products in a similar way garden retailers do. There was one section of that article that really caught my imagination. It was the profile of Celia Tejada, the woman who moved Pottery Barn from buying products from outside vendors to designing their own products. When Tejada joined Pottery Barn, she instructed her entire staff to begin keeping an eye out for things they liked, no matter how minor. So if they were at a restaurant with friends, or walking along a street and something caught their eye, they were to either buy it or photograph it and place it in a room set aside for these kinds of inspiration. When it came time to select themes for the […]

Terrain’s Parent Company Breaks Impass For Waterl…

There’s been a development in the stalled plans for a new Terrain garden store from Urban Outfitters on the former Waterloo Gardens location. In a letter to Easton Township, PA, officials, Urban Outfitters’ Chief Development Officer J. David Ziel says the company is removing a key element that had met strong resistance from the community around Devon Yards, its term for the development plan on the former Waterloo Gardens site. Devon Yards will no longer include a four-story apartment building in its “lifestyle center” project, Ziel wrote. But it will still include its third Terrain store, a large format Anthropologie, and several eateries. The planned apartment building had created friction with local residents, Mainline Media News reported back in April. While residents welcomed the retail aspects of the plan, they felt a large apartment building would change the character of the community. The developer who will work on the project, […]
