Springtime means the start of another growing season with orchards and vineyards coming out of dormancy in most regions. Getting an early start on managing common diseases that severely impact the marketability of fruit and the health of the trees and vines will result in a strong finish at the end of the season.
When it comes to managing diseases, proactivity is the best approach you can take. Fungicide applications should be made prior to disease infection to control key diseases in fruit. Getting in early with fungicide treatments will help you get ahead of the most common diseases, from rust and scab in apples to downy mildew and black rot in grapes.
“If not treated properly, spring disease pressures can take a toll on an orchard or vineyard,” says Tony Dalgliesh, Canada Marketing Portfolio Manager, UPL. “The best thing growers can do is get out there with a fungicide they can rely on for consistent protection. That’s MANZATE® MAX.”
A TRIED-AND-TRUE FUNGICIDE
Adding a trusted fungicide like MANZATE MAX to your spring application will provide broad-spectrum control of some of the most devastating diseases. With its multi-site protectant (FRAC M3), MANZATE MAX has remained a tried-and-true fungicide for Canadian growers looking to protect their crops from disease pressure. The liquid formulation contains mancozeb and zinc ion.
