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.
