BASF is adding two new products to your toolbox: Empress™ Intrinsic™ brand fungicide and Siesta™ Insecticide Fire Ant Bait. Both products will be available for sale this month.

A Second Plant Health Product for Ornamentals
Empress Intrinsic brand fungicide  is an effective drench fungicide for soil-borne diseases with added plant health benefits. With active ingredient pyraclostrobin, Empress Intrinsic brand fungicide provides protection against four root and crown disease pathogens – Fusarium, Phytophthora, Pythium, and Rhizoctonia. Additionally, research shows Intrinsic™ brand fungicides control disease and give plants resilience to stresses that can occur during production.
