Vivid Life Sciences announces the EPA registration of Agri-Fos Systemic Fungicide Plus, a highly concentrated active ingredient phosphite fungicide, for use in agriculture crops.
Agri-Fos Systemic Fungicide Plus is a new formulation with 15% more active ingredient than the original, making it the most concentrated liquid product in the marketplace, the company says. 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 U.S. as announced earlier in 2015.
“Because Agri-Fos Plus is the most concentrated liquid product on the market, growers have the ability to be so much more efficient,” says Josh Krenz, CEO of Vivid Life Science. “They will make fewer passes across the field, use less water and fuel, decrease environmental waste and use fewer jugs.”
Agri-Fos Systemic Fungicide Plus is labeled for use in the control of Phytophthora, Pythium, Fusarium, Rhizoctonia, and more in field corn, oats, sorghum and several other agriculture crops.
Agri-Fos brand products are compatible with most pesticides and liquid fertilizers, but always jar test when mixing with other products and spray a small area to test. Always read and follow label directions.
