OHP Revises Kontos Label, Announces California Spring Trials Plans
OHP has announced that the label on its Kontos insecticide/miticide label has been revised to help increase product performance. Soil drench application rates have been increased and thrips and scale crawlers have been added to the label.
Kontos has unique features such as true up-and-down movement in the plant. It is both foliar and root absorbed.
Growers can also soil drench Kontos because it is xylem-active, the active ingredient will move up systemically through the roots to the growing tips. Soil drench rates have been increased to offer better control of hard-to-control insect pests.
OHP also will again be participating in the upcoming California Spring Trials at American Takii in Salinas, March 23-31, 2012.
OHP will be showcasing the results of its plant growth regulators (PGR) on perennials and annuals such as lantana, geranium, petunia, calibrachoa, sedum and pennisetum (grass) at American Takii.
OHP also will demonstrate the effect of its PGR Augeo on no-pinch poinsettias.
OHP Senior Technical Manager Dave Barcel will coordinate the display, evaluating the performance of the OHP’s PGRs B-Nine, Cycocel, Paczol and Augeo on many of the varieties at American Takii.
“We feel very privileged to be able to be a small part of the event,” notes Barcel, who will be participating in his 17th Spring Trial.
