Research Triangle Park, North Carolina (October 1, 2012)--Vegetable, grape and hops growers now have a new mode of action for managing downy mildew and Phytophthora blight (crown rot) on their crops. BASF today announced that Zampro fungicide received U.S. Environmental Protection Agency registration.

 

Zampro fungicide is a multi-site preventative fungicide containing a unique new chemistry. Labeled crops include: cucurbits, leaf vegetables, grape, fruiting and bulb vegetables, potato and hops.

Zampro fungicide is a premix combination of ametoctradin - a new mode of action - and dimethomorph. It is designed specifically to protect crops against oomycete diseases such as downy mildews, Phytophthora infestans and Phytophthora capsici. Multi-year research results prove the effectiveness of Zampro fungicide, showing when applied preventatively, it has excellent action against oomycete pathogens.

Zampro fungicide can be applied at a maximum of three applications per season with no more than two consecutive applications. Best results are achieved with Zampro fungicide as a preventative application.
