Beat the Heat: Summer Pathogen Control

BioSafe Systems logo

The heat and humidity add up to pathogen trouble, thrown in rain and you need to be prepared for what the season throws your way. This quick guide to controlling Summer pathogens such as Botrytis and Powdery Mildew is a great way to contact kill these tough Virginia Mid-Summer threats!

For best control of Summer Pathogens, OxiDate 2.0 should be incorporated into a tank mix program with residual fungicides and a nonionic surfactant. Applications are especially needed immediately after a rain event and repeated on a 5 – 10 day rotation for as long as weather is conducive for pathogen development. Specifically, we recommend the following program for the control of summer pathogens such as Botrytis and Powdery Mildew:

  • OxiDate – 64 – 128 oz. / 100 gal Spray Volume
  • Nonionic surfactant – 6 oz. / 100 gal
  • Residual Fungicides

OxiDate 2.0 kills bacterial and fungal pathogens, offering superior protection for your organic or conventional field and row crops. Use OxiDate 2.0 for curative crop protection applications, or tank mix with other residual fungicides to help provide immediate knockdown control. With OxiDate 2.0, zero days to harvest and zero-hour re-entry (4-hour for California) interval allows growers to spray right up to harvest.
