Knox Nursery fights disease, saves production time with Pageant® Intrinsic brand fungicide

March 17, 2014

Like most growing operations, Knox Nursery has worked diligently in recent years to prevent any incidences of downy mildew and botrytis, along with leaf burn on the nursery’s poinsettia crop.

“Customers are looking for quality,” noted Matt Blaszczyk, Head Grower of Young Plants at Knox Nursery. There is no compromise.

That’s exactly why Pageant® Intrinsic™ brand fungicide has become a key part of Knox’s spray rotation to fight downy mildew on some of their most important crops, such as impatiens, coleus and salvia. Knox also uses Pageant Intrinsic brand fungicide on the six million vegetative liners it produces annually – especially to control botrytis.

“I see the benefits of Pageant Intrinsic [brand fungicide] especially in propagation and in rooting,” said Blaszczyk. “It allows us to cut our production time and ship a healthier, more robust plant. If we can cut our production time, that makes the product line more profitable.”
