Veranda O is now available

High humidity and cool, cloudy conditions are highly conducive to many plant pathogens that cause plant diseases.  Having the necessary tools to combat these diseases is very important for any successful integrated pest management program.  Hort Americas is pleased to announce another weapon in its arsenal against potentially devastating plant pathogens: Introducing Veranda™O from OHP, Inc.  Recently, vegetables (including cucurbits and others), strawberries and more, were added to the Veranda O label.  Plant pathogens controlled are botrytis, rhizoctonia, and other problem pathogens such as alternaria, and powdery mildew.  The mode of action works by inhibiting chitin synthase during cell wall development.  Veranda O should be used in rotation with other fungicides as part of an overall integrated pest management program.
Veranda O is classified as a “biopesticide”, has no cross-resistance to other fungicides, and is soft on beneficial insects.  The product is a water dispersible granule formulation containing 1.81 ounces of active ingredient polyoxin D per pound. The active ingredient polyonxin D, is a natural antibiotic and fermentation product of a soil bacterium.  With a 4-hour REI, Veranda O has a 0 day preharvest interval except grapes which have a 7 day preharvest interval.  Veranda O should be used at 4 to 8 ounces per 100 gallons of water.
