Pageant Receives Full California RegistrationSource: BASF

BASF Turf & Ornamentals recently announced that Pageant fungicide had received full state registration in California. Combining two fast-acting active ingredients – boscalid, a newly registered active ingredient for ornamentals, and pyraclostrobin, the active ingredient in Insignia fungicide – Pageant gives growers more disease control with one application than any other registered fungicide.

“Growers everywhere are seeking competitive advantages, including those that help control input costs and boost profit margins,” said Dr. Toni Bucci, BASF business manager. “With Pageant fungicide, growers are able to do more with one disease-control application to positively impact their bottom line and produce healthier plants.”

As the ornamentals industry’s broadest-spectrum foliar fungicide, Pageant has activity on all four classes of fungi and provides excellent control of Phytophthora and downy mildew diseases. The formula inhibits fungal respiration at two separate sites within the mitochondria of fungal pathogens, creating a “double lockdown” on the respiration and energy flow within targeted fungi.

Pageant is labeled for use in greenhouses, lathhouses and shadehouses, containers (bench, flats, plugs, pots), outdoor nurseries, retail nurseries, forest and conifer nurseries and plantations, golf courses, and residential and commercial landscapes and interiorscapes.
