Agri-Fos Systemic Fungicide Plus has received EPA registration, Vivid Life Sciences announced yesterday. The active ingredient a highly concentrated phosphite fungicide.
“Agri-Fos Systemic Fungicide is the original systemic fungicide. It was developed by Agrichem and it was one of the first potassium phosphite products registered in the U.S.,” said Josh Krenz, CEO of Vivid Life Science. “The Agri-Fos brand has been used more than 15 years in the United States and more than 30 years worldwide, across thousands of acres, through Agrichem. It is the trusted leader in phosphite products.”
Agri-Fos Systemic Fungicide Plus is a new formulation with 15 percent more active ingredient than the original, making it the most concentrated liquid product in the marketplace. Its potassium-based phosphite makes for greater plant uptake. Advanced phosphite formulation techniques enhance systemic activity for complete translocation of the active ingredient throughout the plant. The product will be sold through Vivid Life Sciences, which acquired the rights to all Agrichem products in the USA as announced earlier in 2015.
Agri-Fos Systemic Fungicide Plus is labeled for use in the control of Phytophthora, Pythium, Fusarium, Rhizoctonia, fire blight, downy mildew, powdery mildew, blight, crown rot, root rot, brown rot, bud rot, fruit rot, sudden wilt, canker, apple black spot scab, bacterial diseases, Septoria, anthracnose and pink rot.
“Because Agri-Fos Plus is the most concentrated liquid product on the market, growers have the ability to be so much more efficient,” said Krenz. “They will make fewer passes across the field, use less water and fuel, decrease environmental waste and use fewer jugs.”
