BASF has launched a new fungicide to help ornamental growers control targeted plant diseases within seconds of treatment. The fungicide, Orvego, contains a combination chemistry that combats all major downy mildews and Phytophthora species during the infectious stages, providing growers with a new resistance-management tool.

Orvego fungicide fights pathogens with a combination of dimethomorph, the active ingredient in Stature SC fungicide, and a new active ingredient, ametoctradin.

The fungicide has shown no fungicide cross-resistance – a particular concern for foliar pathogens such as downy mildews and some Phytophthora species.

“Growers need an arsenal of products to fight off disease pressures specific to their regions, greenhouses and nurseries,” said Brian Lish, Business Manager, BASF. “Orvego fungicide is highly effective as part of a rotation program, as a preventive application or at the first sign of disease.”

Orvego fungicide is labeled for use on production ornamentals in greenhouses, lath houses, container and field nurseries, and interior spaces. Registration for landscape use is expected in Q4 of 2012.
