New Fungicide Helps Control Mildews and Rot in Ornamentals
Greenspire Global, Inc., which manufactures and markets crop inputs, has developed Procidic, a bactericide and fungicide that provides effective disease control without synthetics.
“Procidic’s ingredients allow plants to grow the healthy, natural way,” says Steve Knauss, President of Greenspire Global. “What sets Procidic apart is its safe formula; there are no added stressors to crops. It is proven safe on a wide variety of fruit and vegetable crops, ornamentals, and cut flowers.”
Procidic is an organic fungicide and bactericide formulated to protect crops during all stages of growth. It works systemically and on contact. Procidic is rapidly absorbed into the plant and then moves toward its apex to allow new tissues to be free of infection while reducing the risk of future growth of bacteria and fungi. It can be used for management of various diseases including powdery mildew, bud rot, root rot, and more.
Using Procidic can lessen or eliminate the need for traditional fungicides. It is also a valuable tool for rotation on programs for fungicide cross-resistance management.
Procidic will be distributed by Helena Chemical Company, one of the nation’s leading agricultural and specialty formulators and distributors in the U.S.
