OHP Fungicide Now Registered in 49 States
OHPs new Strike Plus fungicide for the ornamental market is now registered in 49 states, including California. It can be used both inside and outside as a preventive or curative. Users simply adjust the rate accordingly. Strike Plus contains triadimefon, the active ingredient in Strike 50 WDG fungicide, and trifloxystrobin, the active ingredient in Compass O fungicide, in a wettable dispersible granule (WDG) formulation. With the combination of sterol inhibitor (triadimefon) and 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. The combination lessens the high resistance potential that users face when using a strobilurin fungicide by itself. 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. For more information on Strike Plus, visit www.ohp.com.
